Interfaces in extreme value theory

Two day workshop at Lancaster University: 9-10 September 2019

About the workshop

The aim of this workshop is to foster discussions around the interfaces of probabilistic theory, statistical methodology and substantial applications in extreme value theory. The first day will consist of talks and discussions on the theory-methodology interface, while on the second day the focus will be the interface of methodology and applications.

This two day workshop will be followed on 11th September by a one day event on extreme ocean wave phenomena, organized by Philip Jonathan.
