The proposed workshop aims to advance distributionally robust optimization (DRO) as a dominant modeling paradigm for optimization under uncertainty and to lay the foundations for industry-size applications. To this end, we plan to bring together the leading researchers in DRO, as well as closely related fields such as stochastic and dynamic programming as well as (parts of) machine learning. We believe that the research in this area is extremely vibrant and that such a workshop would provide an opportunity to…

The 2018 Symposium on Data Science and Statistics (SDSS) will be held in honor of Edward J. Wegman, who has done seminal work in many areas within the interface of statistics and computing science—as well as data visualization—and has been a driving force in creating the SDSS and its predecessors. SDSS is a continuation of the Symposium on the Interface of Computing Science and Statistics (“The Interface”). In 1967, a partnership between the Southern California Chapter of the American Statistical…

New Statistical Methods for Family-Based Sequencing Studies (18w5154)

August 5, 2018 - August 10, 2018
Banff International Research Station (BIRS), The Banff Centre, Corbett Hall, 107 Tunnel Mountain Drive
Banff, AB T1L 1H5 Canada
+ Google Map

The advent of high-throughput DNA sequencing has opened the possibility of detecting rare genetic variants that may be involved in complex diseases. To establish involvement of rare variants in complex traits, family samples are better suited than samples of unrelated subjects because, in a family, multiple affected members are more likely than unrelated affected individuals to carry the same rare variant from the basic principles of inheritance. A common need in these settings is to account for various forms of…
