LASR 2015: Geometry-Driven Statistics and its Cutting Edge Applications: Celebrating Four Decades of Leeds Workshops

Tuesday 30 June - Thursday 2 July, 2015
Hinsley Hall, Leeds

The 33rd Leeds Annual Statistical Research Workshop


We proudly announce that we are celebrating four decades of the Leeds Workshops in the forthcoming 2015 Leeds Annual Statistical Research (LASR) Workshop which will be held on 30th June-2nd July 2015 in Hinsley Hall, Leeds, UK. It was in 1975 when Leeds hosted a research symposium where distinguished and prominent figures in statistics attended. The research symposium later became our annual LASR Workshops.

Our research workshops have facilitated interdisciplinary discussion between participants that have resulted in important research collaborations and cutting edge applications. To celebrate the four decades of Leeds Workshops, the 2015 LASR Workshop will focus on geometry-driven statistics, which include advanced methods in the analysis of manifolds, directional data analysis and shape analysis, and their cutting edge applications, especially in large data or high-dimensional data.

Invited Speakers

We are pleased to announce that the following leading scientists are expected to speak at LASR 2015.
