Big data is now endemic in business, industry, government, environmental management, medical science, social research and many other fields. One of the challenges is determining how to effectively model and analyse these data. In the wake of last year’s extremely successful event, this workshop will once again bring together international experts in statistical modelling and analysis of big data, to share their experience, approaches and opinions about future directions in this field.


The final program is TBC. Confirmed speakers include: Dr Simon Angus (Monash University), Dr Tomas Bednarz (CSIRO), Prof John Geweke (University of Technology Sydney), Prof Rob Hyndman (Monash University) and Dr Steve Scott (Google)


The workshop is supported by the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers in Big Data, Big Models and New Insights, the Statistical Society of Australia and the QUT Institute for Future Environments.


Registration is now open. Spaces are limited, to avoid disappointment and to ensure you secure a place, please register here by Thursday February 12 2015.
