2017 June 19-20, Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse. "Statistical methods for functional data.",
by J.-M. Loubès, with the participation of A. Choury. Local organizers: F. Bachoc and F. Gamboa.
The first day is an introduction to popular tools in the exploratory data analysis of functional data: smoothing techniques, basis expansions, the mean choice issue, functional PCA.
The second day is a research workshop in functional data analysis.
2017 March 14th, Campus de la Doua, Lyon. "Statistique des Extrêmes" by Cécile Mercadier. This training session is mainly targeted to people that are not familiar with the topic. Tools and theoretical aspects will de explained, as well as examples on real world data. The illustrations have been done with the language R.
2016 June 9 & 27, IRSN Fontenay-aux-Roses. "Introduction to Kriging and R", by Y. Deville (AlpeStat), N. Durrande, O. Roustant (Mines Saint-Etienne) and Yann Richet as local organizer.
One-day session for beginners: Discovery of Kriging-based metamodelling through the R packages DiceKriging, DiceOptim, DiceDesign. The morning is dedicated to the R software: generalities & advanced tools. The afternoon is about metamodelling and application to optimization. An interactive toy problem is used as a guideline.
2017, June. Thomas Santner (Ohio State University, US)
