Very large data sets lead naturally to the development of very complex models --- often models with more adjustable parameters than data. This has led very recently to a rapidly growing body of work in the development and analysis of formal statistical tools for use in these big data problems – often in high dimensions. This workshop will explore, delineate, and make progress on open theoretical issues in the statistical aspects of Large Scale Inference.

Hugh C. Morris Lecture: David Aldous, Berkeley Aside from games of chance and a handful of textbook topics (e.g. opinion polls) there is little overlap between the content of an introductory course in mathematical probability and our everyday perception of chance. In this mostly non-mathematical talk I will give some illustrations of the broader scope of probability. Why do your friends have more friends than you do, on average? How can we judge someone’s ability to assess probabilities of future…

Organizing committee:  Bob Rosner (Computational Institute, University of Chicago) and Leonard Smith (London School of Economics) Despite the fact that mathematical simulations are now common place in science, decision making, forward planning, policy, regulation, and litigation, the fundamental connections between a mathematical simulation and the empirical quantities of the world it targets remain vague and wishy-washy. The focus of this meeting is not so much how science and policy draw insights from the general behaviour of complicated simulation modelling, but…

PIMS-UVic Distinguished Lecture: Abdul-Aziz Yakubu, Howard University In this talk, we will introduce a deterministic malaria model for determining the drug administration protocol that leads to the smallest first malaria episodes during the wet season. To explore the effects of administering the malaria drug on different days during the wet season while minimizing the potential harmful effects of drug overdose, we will define 40 drug administration protocols. Our results fit well with the clinical studies of Coulibaly et al. at…
