7th Workshop on Statistics, Mathematics and Computation (WSMC7)
The organizers of the 5th International Conference on Risk Analysis (ICRA5) [https://sites.google.com/site/2013icra5/] and 7th Workshop on Statistics, Mathematics and Computation (WSMC7) [https://sites.google.com/site/2013wsmc7/]have the great pleasure of inviting you to participate in both meetings. By combining these two scientific meetings at the IPT Campus in Tomar, Portugal, we offer a cost-effective academic experience for researchers in this time of economic hardship.  The respective dates for these two collacted conferences are May 28-29 (WSMC7) and  May 30-June 1, 2013 (ICRA5)Special hotel rates have been negotiated to make the conference trip even more budget friendly.The format of both meetings will involve plenary talks, organized sessions, sessions with contributed talks and posters. The Session organizers will be granted free registrations for the respective meeting, if they have at least 4 registrations in their Session.ICRA5, in honour of Dr. Lutz Edler, will bring together researchers and practitioners who work on Risk Analysis in Economics, Management, Industry, and Biostatistics. The Conference is a forum for presenting new theoretical and computational models and methods in risk assessment with applications in Biology, Environmental Sciences, Public Health, Economics and Finance, and Engineering Reliability.The conference is organized with the ISI Committee on Risk Analysis (http://www.meduniwien.ac.at/isi-cra/index.html).WSMC7, in honour of Professor Stanislaw Mejza, will bring together researchers and practitioners in cross-disciplinary fields to share research results, knowledge, practical experiences and recent advances in theory and applications in the broad areas of Statistics, Mathematics and Computation. Particular attention will be given to interesting applications in areas such as Biostatistics, Biometry, Biomedicine and Biomathematics, with an emphasis on computational issues. Submissions from all of these cross-disciplinary scientific areas are appreciated.These co-conferences are hosted by the·         Universidade Aberta·         Centro de Estatística e Aplicações da Universidade de Lisboa (CEAUL) and·         Instituto Politécnico de Tomar.The Tomar region of Portugal is an attractive tourist area, and there will be opportunities for participants to enjoy social excursions and other entertainment. Tomar is picturesque and historical; it is located in central Portugal on both banks of Nabão River. Tomar is the site of the luxuriant Mouchão Park. The Castle of Tomar and the Convent of Christ are listed in the UNESCO World Heritage. It is our pleasure to welcome you to two scientific conferences in Tomar!

XIV Conferencia Española de Biometría
El área de Estadística e Investigación Operativa de la Universidad de Castilla - La Mancha, a instancias de la Sociedad Española de Biometría, tiene el placer de anunciar la celebración de la XIV Conferencia Española de Biometría – 2013 en Ciudad Real (Facultad de Medicina) del 22 al 24 de mayo de 2013. Toda la información está disponible en la web, pudiéndose obtener información detallada en la dirección de correo electrónico biometria2013@gmail.com Queremos invitar a toda la comunidad científica interesada en difundir y promover el desarrollo y la aplicación de los métodos matemáticos y estadísticos a la biología, medicina, psicología, farmacología, agricultura, bioinformática y otras ciencias afines relacionadas con los seres vivos, así como a todo el personal de la administración pública o empresas interesadas en estasmaterias, a darse cita en Ciudad Real y participar de la exposición de los resultados más novedosos del área.   Queremos aprovechar este anuncio para lanzar los procesos de “Call of Papers” de las revistas del JCR: Biometrical Journal (Impact Factor: 1.252) y SORT (Impact Factor 2011: 0.429) . La revista Biométrica Journal editará un número especial con una selección de los trabajos presentados en la XIV Conferencia Española de Biometría. La revista SORT publicará en una sección de la revista dedicada a la Bioestadística una selección de los trabajos presentados en la XIV Conferencia Española de Biometría. Quedamos a vuestra disposición y esperamos encontrarnos el próximo mes de mayo en Ciudad Real. El Comité Organizador.
Bayes 2013
The workshop BAYES2013 will be held in Erasmus University Rotterdam (http://www.eur.nl/english/) on May 21-23, 2013. Until recently the practical implementation of Bayesian thinking into pharmaceutical research has been slow due to either important computational challenge, lack of Bayesian education in the bio-statistical community or reluctance of regulatory authorities on the usefulness of the approach. However, recent developments within the preclinical setting and in the Model Based Drug Development paradigm indicate the rising interest and added value of Bayesian applications. The objective of the workshop is multifold: The presentation of some applied case studies in the clinical, non-clinical and CMC setting should learn the participants in a first step about some success stories of the Bayesian thinking. This should propagate the Bayesian thinking and practices within the pharmaceutical industry. But more importantly, it emphasizes the advantages of Bayesian modeling for science and business as well as to offer opportunities for statisticians for reorientation within the changing environment of the (bio)pharmaceutical world.http://www.bayes-pharma.org/
