This is very short notice, but for those in the vicinity and not at the RSS conference, there is a highly interesting workshop taking place in Bristol in ten days (I would certainly have gone, had I not been at the same time in Banff!):

We would like to invite you to contribute to our 3 day workshop on “Stochastic approximation: methodology, theory and applications in statistics” that will take place in the Mathematics Department of the University of Bristol (UK) from 13-15 September 2010. The aim of this workshop is to gather world specialists on stochastic approximation and its applications, who might not have the opportunity to meet otherwise, in order to present and discuss recent methodological and theoretical developments in the area, as well as applications. The current list of invited speakers who have agreed to present their work is
Michel Benaïm
Han-Fu Chen
Jayanta Ghosh
Éric Moulines
Georg Pflug
Boris Polyak
Pierre Tarres
George Yin
The workshop is part of SuSTaIn: a programme funded by the EPSRC and the University of Bristol with the ambitious goal of strengthening the discipline of Statistics in the UK, by equipping it to face the challenges of future applications. We will offer limited funding to a restricted number of participants. Priority will be given to young researchers. If you wish to participate, please fill in the registration form
