Call for Poster “Advanced Statistics for Physics Discovery”


We are pleased to announce that the workshop “Advanced Statistics for Physics Discovery will take place on September 24-25, 2018 in Padova and will be organized by the Department of Statistical Sciences.

The workshop focuses on statistical models and learning methods of interest in the physics field. The workshop is organized within the main aims of two training and research networks funded by the European Commission in the Horizon2020 program, AMVA4NewPhysics (ITN Marie Curie – 2015/2019) and INSIGHTS (ITN Marie Curie – 2017/2021)

A number of plenary sessions with invited keynote speakers and a poster session will be organized. See the workshop’s web page for further details:

Anyone interested is welcome to submit a short abstract for a poster on a topic consistent with the aims of the workshop. Contributions inherent to the use of statistical models and learning methods in the physics field, as well as general contributions in statistical methods which can be of interest in physics will be considered. An oral speed session (3’ for each presentation) in which presenters give a brief description of the main results of their work will precede the poster session.

Abstract submission can be made via the website:

Giovanna Menardi (University of Padova), Bruno Scarpa (University of Padova), Annamaria Guolo (University of Padova), Tommaso Dorigo (INFN).
