Modern Statistical and Machine Learning Methods for Big Data

Event Description

This workshop will take place at University of Michigan Ann Arbor on October 21-22, 2022.  We aim to bring together researchers to disseminate and discuss their recent work on statistical machine learning theory, methods, and applications for analyzing large-scale data.   This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Statistics and Department of Biostatistics at University of Michigan.  

The workshop will hold a banquet dinner in October 21st at 630pm-830pm.   Instructions to register will be posted shortly. Note that this is separate from the conference registration and has a limitation on the maximum number of participants due to space constraint.  

For students and postdocs, we will have a poster competition!  Please submit your title and abstract here by September 7th.  Students that participate will get free access to the banquet dinner! 

Due to space constraints, there will be a maximum limit to the number of participants. We will notify you shortly after the deadline whether your proposal has been accepted for the poster competition.


A detailed program book will be posted around August 28th 2022.  Stay tuned!
