From May 23rd to 25th statisticians will gather at the University of British Columbia to address the continued rapid advancement of modern technology that is allowing scientists to collect data of increasingly unprecedented size and complexity. In attending the International Workshop on the Perspectives on High-dimensional Data Analysis III participants will be stimulating research and fostering the interaction of researchers in the area of high-dimensional data analysis in an informal setting. For more information visit http://www.pims.math.ca/scientific-event/130523-iwpohddai
 
From August 12th to 15th researchers with a shared interest in a variety of aspects of statistics and its applications, as well as matrix analysis and its applications to statistics, will be gathering at the Fields Institute, in Toronto, to attend the 22nd International Workshop on Matrices and Statistics. This workshop will bridge the gap among statisticians, computer scientists and mathematicians in understanding each other's tools.   For more information visit http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/programs/scientific/13-14/IWMS/
