Description: 

This Pan-American Advanced Study Institute consists of a summer school with two workshops. The summer school, which will have about 40 participants,  covers a broad range of theoretical and applied areas of spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, with emphasis on climate, air pollution, and ecology. In parallel with the summer school there will be two advanced workshops. The summer school students are expected to also participate in the workshops. One workshop will be dealing with nonstationary covariance structures, and is aiming at a comparison of the various approaches available in the literature. The other workshop covers methods for multivariate spatial statistics. It will be possible to participate only in the workshops, but such participation is by invitation only (contact the organizers if you are interested). There will be opportunity to display posters if there is sufficient interest.
