 Overview

 

With the advent of high throughput technologies and powerful computing facilities, the face of the discipline of statistics has changed drastically. According to the executive summary of the NSF Report on the Future of Statistics (http://www.amstat.org/news/nsf4Aug04.pdf), “among the highest priorities for statistics today is adapting to meet the needs of data sets that are so large and complex that new ideas are required, not only to analyze the data, but also to design the experiments and interpret the experimental results”.

The statistical community has clearly embraced this vision, which sees the Issac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences organizing a large scale six-month program on Statistical Theory and Methods for Complex, High-Dimensional Data from January to June, 2008 (http://www.newton.cam.ac.uk/programmes/SCH/ws.html).

It is not our intention to duplicate what the Issac Newton Institute is doing. Rather, the IMS would like to complement their program by organizing a regional workshop, with participants from China, Taiwan, India and Singapore, and with the major aim of promoting regional networking and collaboration. As it would be impossible to conduct a comprehensive program over three days, the organizing committee has decided to focus on several niche areas with well represented local expertise. The following three sub-themes are identified:

Day 1: Large dimensional random matrices.

Day 2: Functional data analysis.

Day 3: Sparsity issues and model selection in high dimensional problems.


It is hoped that this timely workshop will lead to fruitful synergy and collaboration between the participants and stimulate further advance in the important and challenging problem of high-dimensional data analysis.
