The IASC-ARS 25th Anniversary Conference & CASC 2nd Annual Conference
With the rapid development of modern computing technology and the rise of the big data,
opportunities and challenges in statistical computing have been witnessed in all dimensions
of data science. Confronted with such condition, the Asian Regional Section of the
International Association for Statistical Computing (IASC-ARS) and Chinese Association for
Statistical Computing (CASC) jointly hold the IASC-ARS 25th Anniversary Conference &
CASC 2nd Annual Conference to be held at Beijing Conference Center, Beijing, China, on 9-
11 November 2018. The theme of the conference is “Statistical Computing: Challenges and
Opportunities in Data Science”.
The conference is dedicated to promoting further development of statistical computing in
modern data science, and to providing a platform for international academic exchanges and
cooperation among Statistical Computing and data science professionals.
Keynote Speakers: Donald B. Rubin, Jun Liu, Wing Kam Fung and Fang Yao
Local organizer: Center for Statistical Science, Tsinghua University

We look forward to seeing you in Beijing!
LARS-IASC School on Computational Statistics and Data Science Statistics of
extremes: Modeling, inferences, and applications
The Latin American Regional Section (LARS) of the International Association for Statistical
Computing (IASC) will organize its first “LARS-IASC School on Computational Statistics and
Data Science” in Salvador, Brazil, on 15-17 November 2018, under the topic “Statistics of
extremes: Modeling, inferences, and applications”. The main purpose of the LARS-IASC
School is to spread the knowledge base and advances in Statistical Computing in Latin
American countries and to increase the quality and quantity of researchers in the field. The
“LARS-IASC School on Computational Statistics and Data Science” will be a satellite event
of the 1st Conference on Statistics and Data Science, that will also be held in Salvador,
Brazil, on 12-14 November 2018.
The LARS-IASC School on Extreme Value Theory will feature the lecturers Miguel de
Carvalho (University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK), Manuele Leonelli (University of Glasgow,
Scotland, UK) and Dani Gamerman (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).
More information about the program and registration for the LARS-IASC School on
Computational Statistics and Data Science can be found here:
Final CRoNoS Spring Course
The final CRoNoS Spring Course will take place at the Poseidonia Beach Hotel,
Limassol, Cyprus, 14-16 April 2019. The aim of this training course is to put together
several tutorials on topics related to robust statistics, computational statistics and the
treatment of non-standard data. The course is sponsored by COST and IASC-ERS.
Eligible PhD students and Early Career Investigators can apply for grants. More details can be found at
Forth Latin American Conference on Statistical Computing Guayaquil,
Ecuador, May 28-31, 2019
The Forth Latin American Conference on Statistical Computing (LACSC 2019) will be held in
Guayaquil, Ecuador, on 28-31 May 2019. This international conference will be held together
with the International Conference on Robust Statistics (ICORS 2019), which is the most important event in Robust Statistics. Its aim is to gather researchers interested in statistical
computing in Latin America and from other parts of the world, and is the official conference of
the Latin American Regional Section of the International Association for Statistical
Computing (LARS-IASC). More details about the LACSC 2019 will be available soon.
The IASC-ARS 2019 Conference
We have set up a website for the IASC-ARS 2019 to be held at the University of Hong Kong on 2-5 December 2019: http://www.saasweb.hku.hk/conference/iascars2019 and a poster for the conference. We look forward to seeing you in Hong Kong to attend the IASC-ARS 2019 conference and to experience the fusion of Chinese and Western cultures and beauty of Hong Kong!
