Workshop on Emerging Themes in Computational Statistics

Dates: 19th (Wed) — 20th (Thu) February, 2020
Location: Room D222, The Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Tokyo
Registration: No registration required (except for dinner)


Computational statistics is a rapidly developing research field due to the increasing high demand in analysing large and complex data in many areas of science. Motivated by the recent innovations in efficient computational techniques for statistical inference and a variety of computationally challenging applications, this workshop aims to facilitate discussions amongst researchers working on different aspects of statistical computations, and promotes new ideas in both methodological and applied directions.


Some of the speakers are unable to attend the workshop due to travel restrictions resulted from the coronavirus disease outbreak.

The Institute of Statistical Mathematics (ISM) is in Tachikawa (立川), situated in the western portion of Tokyo Metropolis. Tokyo has two international airports: Narita (成田) and Haneda (羽田). Airport limousine bus services to Tachikawa are available at both airports:

Tickets can be purchased at the Bus Ticket Counter in the arrival hall. On the bus, each approaching stop will be announced in English. Once you arrive at the Tachikawa Station or the Palace Hotel (if you are from Narita) you may take a short taxi ride to the ISM (統計数理研究所) by showing the driver the following address:
