IWFOS 2021 as an online event

12 Feb 2021

Dear colleagues and friends,

we are writing to announce that your favourite conference on functional and nonparametric statistics,
the 5th International Workshop on Functional and Operatorial Statistics IWFOS 2021,
will be organized on 23–25 June 2021 as an online event.

As you know, the 5th IWFOS was planned to be held in June 2020 in Brno, Czech Republic and had to be postponed to June 2021 due to the covid pandemic. Since the epidemic situation has not improved, we considered either another postponement or an online workshop this year. We chose the latter possibility because we think it is important that communication and exchange of ideas continue already this year. We hope that it will be possible to return to the traditional format in the coming years.

Here is some information that may be useful:

  • There will be two types of contributions: standard oral presentations and posters with a short oral presentation. The online format will give us more flexibility to accommodate the wishes of the presenters.
  • Several invited talks will be presented.
  • Registration and submission will open on 15 March 2021 and close on 21 May 2021.
  • The organizers will ask the participants to pay a low registration fee of about 20 euros (to cover the cost of IT support etc.).

The exact format of the workshop will be determined based on results of the survey of interest. Participants previously registered for IWFOS 2020 will receive an e-mail with the weblink to the form of the survey of interest.

Detailed information will be communicated in the first half of March 2021. You can follow the workshop website https://iwfos2021.sci.muni.cz.

We are looking forward to seeing you online.
