Risk Measurement and Regulatory Issues in Business

September 11 - September 14
Centre de recherches mathématiques, 2920 Chemin de la tour, Room 5357
Montréal, QC H3T 1J4 Canada
+ Google Map

Part of the thematic semester: Risk in Complex Systems In banking and insurance, risk assessment is a major concern for managers and regulators. The computation of solvency requirements within regulatory frameworks such as Basel III and Solvency II requires accurate modeling of the risks inherent to high-dimensional portfolios. Financial institutions are exposed to many sources of risk which are hard to model. The uncertainty inherent to these models gives rise to regulatory arbitrage, robustness, and back-testing issues in risk measurement…

Measurement and Control of Systemic Risk

September 25 - September 28
Centre de recherches mathématiques, 2920 Chemin de la tour, Room 5357
Montréal, QC H3T 1J4 Canada
+ Google Map

Part of the thematic semester: Risk in Complex Systems Systemic risk is the risk of collapse of an entire financial system or entire market — as opposed to risk associated with any individual entity, group or component of the system. Systemic risk may arise from common risk exposures, counterparty risk, balance sheet contagion, fire sales or other contagion mechanisms. This workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on state-of-the-art theoretical approaches and operational techniques for modeling, measuring…

ASA Symposium on Statistical Inference

October 11 - October 13
Hyatt Regency Bethesda, One Bethesda Metro Center (7400 Wisconsin Avenue)
Bethesda, MD MD, 20814 United States
+ Google Map

This symposium follows up on the historic ASA "Statement on P-Values and Statistical Significance". Although the problems identified in the statement have been known for several decades, previous expressions of concern and calls for action have not fostered broad improvements in practice. Recognizing this failure and seeking to move beyond the “Don’ts” highlighted by the ASA statement—the inappropriate interpretations and uses of p-values and significance tests—the Symposium on Statistical Inference will focus attention on the “Do’s.” Discussions will center on…

Inferential Challenges for Large Spatio-Temporal Data Structures (17w5153)

December 3 - December 8
Banff International Research Station (BIRS), The Banff Centre, Corbett Hall, 107 Tunnel Mountain Drive
Banff, AB T1L 1H5 Canada
+ Google Map

A range of inference methodologies are in use for spatio-temporal data, and the complexity and nature of each problem dictates the nature of the methodology used. The high dimensionality of spatio-temporal data often means inference methodologies exhibit a combination of model simplifications, approximations of estimators and likelihood functions, and/or computational and algorithmic efficiencies. Unlike many other ‘big data’ problems, however, an understanding of the physical properties of the spatio-temporal process in question often enables many simplifying assumptions to be made…

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…
