Statistical Learning Seminars


Online seminar series on statistical learning and related topics

One World

The effects of CoViD-19 pervades through research communities across the globe, causing cancelled conferences, post-poned research visits, and suspended projects. Like many others, we have sought other opportunities for collaboration in spite of the current state of affairs and have therefore organized this online seminar series in statistical learning.


We are going to use zoom. The seminar will be 1 hour long, with 45 minutes allocated to the presentation itself and 15 minutes to discussions afterwards.

Here are some ground rules for these seminars:

Waiting room

You will be placed in a waiting room when entering the zoom seminar. Please wait for the host to let you in to the meeting.

The seminar is held on a weekly basis on fridays and will run at least until June 12. Each seminar starts at 16:30 CEST.

Upcoming talks

The seminar series will take a break after July 10. We hope to see you again in the fall!
