The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in graphical models and explore the strong algebraic connections present in their analysis, with a focus on conditional independence. [more]

Realistic big data analyses require statistical models accounting for dependence. The class of vine copulas ( has been shown to capture flexibly dependence patterns with tail dependence and asymmetry. Vine copulas significantly extend the Gaussian copula. This two day workshop is... [more]

One aim of the conference is to celebrate the Carl Friedrich von Siemens Prize of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation awarded to Steffen Lauritzen from University of Copenhagen. [more]

In our complex and interrelated world, taking care of dependence is a key task for success in stochastic modeling. The copula framework takes a pivotal role in this area. The conference will bring together researchers from different methodological view points and application areas to provide an up to... [more]

In the lectures Prof. Lauritzen shall go through basic elements of undirected graphical Gaussian models, their maximum likelihood theory, and discuss features arising when additional structure such as symmetry and total positivity is taken into account. Prof. Lauritzen describes and discusses... [more]
