Conference: Dynstoch 2013 – University of Copenhagen



The University of Copenhagen

April 17 - 19, 2013

The DYNSTOCH conference will bring together researchers who are working on various topics of inference for stochastic processes. The focus is on estimation, testing and prediction methods for complex dynamic models such as diffusions or branching processes. It is for example of interest for modeling and data analysis in finance, turbulence, neuroscience or hydrology.

Venue and dates:

A map to reach from venue to lunch, and from venue to conference dinner can be downloaded here. The conference will be held at Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen, and the event is hosted by the Statistics and Probability Section. The conference is held from Wednesday, April 17 to Friday, April 19, 2013. We will start around 12:00 h on Wednesday, and end around 17:00 h on Friday. You can find information and directions to the mathematics department here All talks take place in Auditorium 4.


We recommend Hotel de 9 Små Hjem, which is pleasant and inexpensive and offers room with a kitchen. Other inexpensive alternatives are CabInn that has several locations in Copenhagen: the Hotel City (close to Tivoli), Hotel Scandivania (Frederiksberg, close to the lakes), and Hotel Express (Frederiksberg) are the most convenient locations; the latter two are 2.5-3 km from the math department. Somewhat more expensive - and still recommended - options are Hotel Nora and Ibsen's Hotel. You can also check this almost up to date hotel list.


Participants can apply for support to partly cover their living costs while attending the conference. We expect the support to be around DKK 500 per day. Please indicate on the registration form if you wish to be considered for this support together with a brief motivation.
