Spatial Statistics Conference 2013

Jan 31, 2013. Spatial statistics is a rapidly developing field which involves the quantitative analysis of spatial data and the statistical modelling of spatial variability and uncertainty. Following the highly successful first conference in 2011, the aim of the 2013 meeting is to present interdisciplinary research where applicability in other disciplines is a central core concept.

  Spatial dimensions of survey nonresponse
  Massive spatial and space-time datasets and data mining
  Small area estimation and handling missing spatial and 
    space-time data
  Spatial and space-time sampling and monitoring networks
  Combining deterministic and stochastic models for spatial 
    and space-time processes
  Analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal extremes
  Spatial and space-time modeling of non-Gaussian (e.g., 
    categorical) and non- stationary data
  Model-based geostatistics
  Multivariate spatial statistics
  Teaching spatial statistics
  Point pattern analysis

Huntsville 2013 Inverse Problems Symposium, Alabama, US

Jan 28, 2013. This is the announcement of the 2013 Inverse Problems Symposium that will be held June 9-11 in Huntsville, Alabama. Please mark this time in your calendars. This symposium is the 26th in the series of national and international meetings on Inverse Problems that were initiated at MSU in 1988 by Dr. James Beck. he last symposia were held at the University of Central Florida and Michigan State University in 2011 and 2012, respectively. The 2013 symposium in Huntsville, Alabama will retain the single session format of these symposia, and will have sessions addressing both the theoretical and applied aspects of inverse problems. We are actively seeking session organizers, so please let us know if you are interested.


Jan 25, 2013. The fourteenth conference on the Mathematics of Finite Elements and Applications will be held at Brunel University and run during 11 - 14 June, 2013. Important dates:

  4th April 2013, Early Bird registration
  17th May 2013, Normal registration
  10th May 2013, Deadline for partial refund due to cancellation
  26th April 2013, Abstract Deadline 

Sasaki Symposium on Data Assimilation in June 2013

Jan 25, 2013. We announce the 6th Sasaki Symposium on Data Assimilation for Atmospheric, Oceanographic and Hydrological Applications to be held in the AOGS on 24-28 June 2013, Convention & Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Australia.

Topics for the session include but are not limited to: 1) assimilation techniques and theories; 2) treatment of nonlinear and discontinuous processes; 3) assimilation of in-situ and/or remotely-sensed observational data; 4) sensitivity analysis and its application to adaptive (targeting) observation; and 5) predictability and ensemble prediction studies relevant to data assimilation.

Please submit your abstract through online by 29 January 2013 at Please refer to the attached files for more details and consider attending this memorable meeting. We appreciate your circulating this announcement in your institution. Thank you very much.

International Conference on Electromagnetics in Advanced Applications

Jan 23, 2013. The fifteenth edition of the International Conference on Electromagnetics in Advanced Applications (ICEAA 2013) is supported by the Politecnico di Torino, by the Istituto Superiore Mario Boella and by the Torino Wireless Foundation, with the principal technical cosponsorship of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society and the technical cosponsorship of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) and the IEIIT - CNR. It is coupled to the third edition of the IEEE-APS Topical Conference on Antennas and Propagation in Wireless Communications (APWC 2013), and to the first edition of the Electromagnetic Metrology Symposium (EMS 2013) organized by Commission A of URSI in cooperation with ICEAA. The three conferences consist of invited and contributed papers, and share a common organization, registration fee, submission site, workshops and short courses, banquet, and social events. The proceedings of the conferences will be published on IEEE Xplore. For details, please visit the Web site at:

Submission of abstracts: March 1, 2013 Notification of acceptance: April 12, 2013 Final manuscript and presenter registration: June 7, 2013

Summer School on Data Assimilation and Inverse Problems, July 22-26, 2013 at Reading

July 22-26 there will be a Summer School / Workshop on Data Assimilation
at the University of Reading. The subtitle of the school is 
"From Weather Prediction to Neuroscience" - with the goal to bring different
communities together and learn from the experiences and questions of teh
different fields. Introductions into classical and modern data assimilation
methods will be provided by a range of experts in the field. More information
will follow in due course.
