Venue: 2nd Floor Auditorium, Main Building
There are many exciting research opportunities in theoretical and applied ecology
for statisticians. As a result the field of Statistical Ecology has grown explosively
over the last two decades. Yet the uptake of these research problems within India has
been very limited. Given the increasing human-induced pressures on India's wildlife
and biodiversity, there is a pressing need for auditing India's biodiversity by
developing sound methods involving construction of innovative statistical models,
designing effective sampling strategies as well as advancing statistical theory.
With this motivation in mind, a workshop on Statistical Ecology with focus on
likelihood and Bayesian methods is being organized at the Indian Statistical Institute,
Bangalore during December 8-11, 2016. The workshop will feature sessions from some of
the leading ecologists, statisticians and conservationists.
Students and researchers interested in quantitative ecology as well as in statistics
are encouraged to apply.
