|Cherry Bud Workshop 2006|
|Building Models from Data|
Dates: 27-30 March 2006.
This is the 3rd in a series of international Cherry Bud workshops held every spring in Yokohama since 2004. These workshops form part of the Keio University 21st Century COE programme "Integrative Mathematical Sciences: Progress in Mathematics Motivated by Natural and Social Phenomena". Previous workshop themes were "Data Science and System Reduction" (2004) and "Quantitative Risk Management" (2005).
The broad theme of this workshop is building models from data where this is intended to embrace a continuum of topics ranging from data structure, organisation and visualisation through to specific stochastic models for data drawn from the natural and social sciences among others. The fields of application are not restricted and are likely to include Bioinformatics, Environmetrics, Mathematical Finance, Quantitative Risk Management among others. It is hoped that this workshop will also contribute to a better understanding of the generic process (meta model) of building good models from data for the underlying phenomena concerned.
A primary aim of this workshop is to encourage Keio University graduate students to develop their current research projects by providing opportunities for links and interaction with other international researchers in their fields and more generally. The workshop is also intended to provide a stimulating environment for all participants to learn more about recent research and developments in this general area.
