Algebraic Methods in Statistics

The aim of the workshop is to give a survey on recent topics in algebraic statistics and to bring together young researchers to discuss and work on current research problems in this field.


The workshop will take place from 30.11. to 02.12.2017 at the University of Osnabrück, Institute of Mathematics, Albrechtstraße 28a, Buildung 69, room 125.
