S4D 2018 : Research Summer School on Statistics for Data Science
Call For Papers
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVES:
Large-scale data analysis is an inherently multidisciplinary area and is becoming increasingly important in the today's society where we are confronted with the "Big Data" phenomenon, which are data on a large-scale in terms of dimension, volume, and complexity. The Research Summer School on Statistics for Data Science (S4D) is a multidisciplinary international summer school at the interface of several disciplines: statistics, computer science (machine learning), optimization and signal processing, with a focus on probabilistic/statistical formulations of recent methodologies dedicated to the problem of learning from large-scale complex data.
It will involve, during 5 days, for an audience of PhD students, engineers, postdocs and scientists, several international pioneering scientists in modern statistics, machine learning and artificial intelligence to present their expertise on both theoretical and technical aspects of models and algorithms to address data science problems with a focus on large-scale/high-dimensional scenarios.
The objectives of the talks are to:
present the basic developments of models for phd students and practitioners to understand the basics of the domain;
highlight for students, scientists and practitioners the major scientific issues necessary for the development of such models and on the related theoretical and computational problems;
present and analyze the latest theoretical advances in modeling and practical considerations regarding statistical learning, classification, representation, of large-scale raw data, in various application area
The registration fees simply serve to cover all fees : cocktails, coffee breaks, lunches, dinners in nice French restaurants, guided visits (e.g to Mont St Michel, WW2 Landing beaches, etc) (except the accommodation where people are invited to book by themselves; we provide a list of closest hotels to the place of the school and would be happy to help if needed).
If however you wish to only attend the courses of the summer school, this is possible and you only pay the symbolic amount of 50 €.

PhD Students' contributions:
We are also pleased to inform you that PhD students' contributions are possible and we kindly invite interested people to submit their contributions. The accepted papers will be presented during the school (oral or poster presentations).
The proceedings will be published online.
Official attendance letters:
The PhD attendees will get an official letter from the president of the organizing committee which allows them to earn credits and validate the courses as part of their PhD program.
We are looking forward to seeing you in the nice city of Caen!
