Regional Workshop of European young researchers in statistics

October 29-31 2018, Paris (France)


The idea of this first event is to organize a meeting between early-career statisticians in Europe. During this workshop two types of session will be held, scientific ones and administrative ones. In one hand, the scientific sessions aim at getting to know research topics of people attending in order to promote future collaborations. In an other hand, the administrative ones are meant to propose new ideas to organize future events in Europe or around the world.
We hope that this event could help to strengthen international links by offering anopportunity for representatives of European statistical societies to meet. Hence, this event may improve networking and so facilitate international collaboration, and communication about post-doctoral offers for instance.
The regional workshop is open to all young statisticians so, PhD students, postdocs and early-career researchers (until 5 years of experience) are welcomed!
The 1st workshop will be held in Paris, France on October 29-31 2018.


The registration is free but mandatory. Each registration should be sponsored by a representative of the statistical society of your country. To register, please send an email to with your sponsor in copy, and a link to complete the registration will be sent.
Registration deadline: October, 1 st


Every participant can submit an abstract of at most one page in order to give a talk introducing his/her research field to a wide audience of statisticians. Please send your submission to in pdf.
Submission deadline: October, 1 st
