This workshop has the goal of bringing together researchers in the fields of stochastic analysis on manifolds, stochastic shape analysis, and stochastic geometric mechanics. These fields are closely interrelated: Stochastic shape analysis draws on stochastic variational principles, which have been developed in stochastic geometric mechanics, building on foundations in stochastics on manifolds. Conversely, stochastic shape analysis with its diverse real-world applications continues to inspire new theoretical questions, in particular regarding extensions to infinite dimensions and connections to statistical estimation.
We believe that the three communities will benefit from increased sharing of problems, methodology and solution strategies, and it is the goal of this workshop to initiate new collaborations across the three fields. The workshop will consist of scientific talks by the participants as well as time for collaboration. A detailed program will be announced later on.
The workshop starts on February 23rd in the afternoon/evening and ends on Thursday February 27th after lunch. Please plan your travel accordingly. Information on how to reach the venue is available here.
The workshop is organized and funded by the Centre for Stochastic Geometry and Advanced Bioimaging.
The organizing committee is:
- Alexis Arnaudon (Imperial College)
- Philipp Harms (University of Freiburg)
- Stefan Sommer (University of Copenhagen)
- Eva Vedel Jensen (Aarhus University)
