#12 Meeting: International workshop on wavelets in statistics

International workshop on wavelets in statistics
ISDS, Duke Univeristy, Octo 12-13, 1997

Call for contributed papers and posters

This workshop will explore and promote research at the interface
between wavelets and statistical science. The meeting aims to provide
an opportunity to summarize the current status of research on
wavelets in statistics, to explore the applied impact of statistical
wavelet modeling, and to stimulate novel research directions.

The Workshop will run in "Statistics Week 1997" at Duke University,
following the "Workshop on Stochastic Model Building and Variable
Selection" and the "1997 NBER/NSF Time Series Seminar". This cluster
of related meetings will provide opportunity for cross-fertilization
between wavelet researchers interested in time series and model
selection/uncertainty in statistics.


The program of the Workshop will include invited talks, contributed
talks, and poster presentations. The invited talks will be organized
in 3 sessions (two sessions on Sunday, October 12; one session on
Monday morning, October 13). Each session will consist of four
40-minutes-talks. Contributed talks are planned on October 13,
afternoon, and most likely will run in two or more parallel sessions
divided to topics. A poster session will take place in the evening of
October 12, and will provide a venue for informal interaction among
workshop participants.

DAY ONE: (10/12, Sunday)
- Morning: Start, 4 invited talks, 40' each ( + 5' floor discussion)
- Afternoon: 4 invited talks, 40' each ( + 5' floor discussion)
- Evening: Poster session.

DAY 2 (10/13, Monday)
- Morning: 4 invited talks, 40' each (+ 5' floor discussion)
- Afternoon: X contributed talks (short 15'+5',
(2+ parallel sessions, divided to topics)

Further details about the Workshop are available at the www site at The site will be
updated as soon as more detailed information about the program and
participants becomes available.


We are actively seeking presentations for both short contributed
talks and poster session. Registration deadline and abstract
submission: June 1, 1997. Notification of acceptance will be
sent around July 20, 1997. By October 1, 1997 accepted papers
should be ready for the conference electronic proceedings.

Some of the relevant topics include:

- Wavelet thresholding and threshold assessment
- Wavelets and time series analysis
- Over-complete representations, best bases, and pursuit methods
- Denoising problems
- Density and function estimation
- Bayesian wavelet modeling, shrinkage, and mixing
- Classification and discriminant analysis
- Computational techniques
- Applications of wavelets


The Workshop organisers have applied for an NSF Group Travel Grant
for participants from the USA to attend the Workshop. Interactive
registration and grant application forms are available at the ISDS
www site


A World Wide Web version of the proceedings of the Workshop will be
created at the ISDS www site. Papers resident in postscript format at
the author's web site will be linked in, with asbtracts on the
Workshop home page.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Workshop.
