Aim

Realistic big data analyses require statistical models accounting for dependence. The class of vine copulas (vine-copula.org) 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 devoted to theoretical and methodological advances in vine copula models, including estimation, model selection, simulation, statistical learning, and survival models. Another focus is to showcase important applications in the area of finance, insurance, life sciences, engineering and machine learning.
