|Abstract: ||Dear participants, colleagues and friends,
WELCOME to the Satellite Meeting of the ISI-CRA, Committee on Risk
Analysis of the International Statistical Institute organized jointly with the
11th Workshop on Statistics, Mathematics and Computation. We are delighted
to promote another meeting under the topics of Risk Analysis and
to jointly celebrate more than one decade of strong interaction between researchers
from Portugal and abroad, leading to a successful commitment and
enthusiasm on promoting research in the broad areas of Statistics, Mathematics
It is a great pleasure to receive all our guests and contributors at the
Universidade Aberta (UAb) main building, the Ceia Palace in Lisbon, in
order to attend the beginning of our meetings on the 10th July, the ISI-CRA
Satellite meeting in Honor of Professor David Banks and the 11th Workshop
on Statistics Mathematics and Computation this year devoted to Professor
Maria Antónia Turkman.
Keynote Speaker, Professor David Banks was, among many other positions,
the coordinating editor of the Journal of the American Statistical
Association, the President of the Committee on Risk Analysis and the President
of ISBIS - International Society for Business and Industrial Statistics.
His contributions were crucial on the development and expansion of Statistics
by promoting it and encouraging new generations. Keynote Speaker,
Professor Maria Antónia Turkman besides being an outstanding researcher
in the area of Statistics, during several years she played a key role leading the
Center of Statistics and Applications of the University of Lisbon and contributing
for the respective international recognition. We are really grateful
for her work, friendship and mentoring!
The activities and lectures will continue on 11-12 July, taking place in
Portalegre, at the Instituto Politécnico de Portalegre (IPP), that kindly offered
to accommodate the joint meeting. We express our gratitude to the
Institute Coordinators for kindly accepted to embrace this Challenge. This
joint meeting is a platform to exchange knowledge through international
contacts involving Statisticians, Mathematicians, Computation professionals
and Students, from several Universities, Organizations and other Institutions
around the World. Our main objective is to assemble researchers and
practitioners involved in the main areas of Statistics, Mathematics and Comv
putation, with special focus on Risk Analysis issues, by encouraging mutual
exchange and interactions among a broad range of Science areas.
The format of the meeting involves Keynote Lectures, Plenary Talks,
Organized Sessions and Poster Sessions. Special attention is given to applications
and to new theoretical results having potential of solving real life
problems. Discussion will be open in several areas, mainly with regard to
challenges in Life Sciences, Medicine, Health Sciences, Cancer Research, Education,
Management, Insurance and Industry.
Participants will have several journal opportunities for papers submission.
Selected papers will appear in editions of Biometrical Letters, Journal
Risks and in a Springer volume of the Series "Contributions to Statistics".
We are really grateful to all the participants for their valuable contribution,
to Invited Speakers, Session Organizers and Authors who submitted
abstracts, for the enthusiastic way how they assume their participation. We
also acknowledge all the sponsors and contributors who made this meeting
Furthermore, we acknowledge our Honour Committee: Rector of UAb,
President of IPP, Coordinator of the Center of Statistics and Applications
of University of Lisbon, President of International Statistical Institute and
President of the Committee on Risk Analysis of International Statistical
Institute and for their precious support.
Many people and organizations contributed to the planning and execution
of this joint meeting, and we are deeply grateful to all for that. However
it is not an easy task to enumerate all the people who should be thanked.
Nevertheless, there are a few groups and organizations that we would like to
single out for special thanks. We are most grateful to UAb and to the IPP
for hosting the meeting and to all the members of the Organizing Committee
and of the Scienti c Committee for their crucial help and suggestions. We
wish to deeply thank to Cristina Dias, Luís M. Grilo and the Local Organizing
Committee who were responsible for the meetings logistics at IPP and
for organizing the social programme. Last but not least, special thanks are
addressed to Amílcar Oliveira, Luís M. Grilo and Fernando Carapau for the
invaluable contribution on organizing the Webpage, the nal programme and
the Book of Abstracts details in an incredible short time. We believe that
this joint meeting will be rewarding to all of us.
We wish you a very productive, successful, and enjoyable joint meeting,
as well as a very nice stay in Lisbon and in Portalegre. Please, try also to
nd time to enjoy the delights of Portugal!!!|
