3rd UCL Workshop on the Theory of Big Data

June 26 - June 28
University College London, 30 Guildford Street
London, WC1N 1EH United Kingdom

Part of the thematic semester: Risk in Complex Systems Global change and rising pressure on the natural environment are having increasingly visible impacts on the sustainability of human activities. Events such as heat waves that were formerly very rare arebecoming more common. Droughts and major windstorms are perceived to be increasing in frequency. It is essential to be able to forecast the likely size and impacts of such events if we are to adapt to them and attempt to mitigate…

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…

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…
