High-Dimensional Inference with Applications

With financial support from the London Mathematical Society, this two day workshop held on 24-25 June 2013 celebrated the career and achievements of Professor Philip Brown. Applied mathematicians, statisticians and bioinformaticians from the UK and beyond came together to focus on the future direction of the topics in which Professor Brown has had most influence.

A number of invited guest speakers (details below) contributed talks on subjects including

  • Bayesian nonparametric statistics
  • wavelet based functional data analysis
  • regression and calibration with many covariates
  • Bayesian experimental design
  • classification and discrimination in high dimensions
  • innovative non-Bayesian and classical approaches.

At a dinner on the evening of Monday 24th June Sir Adrian Smith, Vice-Chancellor of the University of London, gave the after-dinner speech.

The workshop speakers were:


  • A gathering of world-renowned statisticians
  • A state-of-the-art review of the open problems in selected topics related to High-Dimensional Inference
