PROBASTAT 2024




About the Conference


PROBASTAT 2024, the 8th international conference on Probability and Statistics, marks the culmination of a 50-year history of fostering the exchange of ideas and research across the diverse landscape of statistics. Originating from the first Czechoslovak conference in 1974 and evolving into an international event since 1991, PROBASTAT has consistently provided a friendly and relaxed academic atmosphere. Collaboratively organized by the Slovak Academy of Sciences (Institute of Measurement Science and Mathematical Institute) and Comenius University in Bratislava (the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics, and Informatics), subsequent conferences in 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2011, and 2015 have become synonymous with excellence.

PROBASTAT 2024 promises a diverse and highly attractive program, featuring invited and contributed talks, as well as poster presentations addressing both traditional and contemporary topics in the theory and applications of advanced statistical methods. The traditional research areas of PROBASTAT include, but are not limited to:


• Statistical Inference in Parametric and Nonparametric Models
• Multivariate Analysis, Regression and Mixed Models
• Optimal Experimental Design
• Applied Statistics

In addition to distinguished keynote lectures, the conference will host invited Organized Sessions curated by leading researchers in their respective fields.

A selection of papers presented at PROBASTAT 2024 will be published in a special issue of Statistical Papers (Springer).

CONFERENCE VENUE


The 8th International Conference on Probability and Statistics is prepared in the Congress Center of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in the Smolenice Castle situated in Little Carpathians about 60 km from Bratislava (GPS: N48.51359, E17.43232). See the global map and overview map to locate Smolenice relative to the cities Vienna, Bratislava and Trnava or the local map to see the vicinity of the conference center with bus stops and railway station in Smolenice. You can view short movie or presentation about Smolenice and surrounding (with Slovak comments).

The original Smolenice Castle was rebuilt at the beginning of the previous century in romantic style. Now, after a large renovation it offers full comfort in several well equipped conference rooms including videoconferencing or wireless network connection. Accommodation is in suites, single, double or more-bed rooms, all with their own bathrooms. Participants can rest in the quiet corners of the castle or in its garden or can walk in nice parks surrounding the castle. Additional information about the castle is available at www.vitajtevtrnave.sk/EN.
