ERCIM Working Group

Computing & Statistics


ERCIM - the European Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics aims to foster collaborative work within the European research community and to increase co-operation with European industry. Leading research institutes from eighteen European countries are members of ERCIM.

ERCIM Working Groups

The purpose of an ERCIM working group is to build and maintain a network of ERCIM researchers in a particular scientific field. The working groups are open to any researcher in the specific scientific field. Their main activities are the organization of workshops and the preparation of common project proposals. The working groups are also the focus of internal mobility within ERCIM.

ERCIM Working Group on Computing & Statistics

The working group (WG) focuses on all computational aspects of statistics. Of particular interest is research in important statistical applications areas where both computing techniques and numerical methods have a major impact. The aim is twofold: first, to consolidate the research in computational statistics that is scattered throughout Europe; second to provide researches with a network from which they can obtain an unrivalled sources of information about the most recent developments in computational statistics and applications. Emphasis will given to computational methods with computational statisticians being the primary target of the WG.


The Chairs of the Working Group are the founders, CSDA Editors and ERS-IASC chairpersons.
