CIMPA-UNESCO-MESR-MICINN research School 2012: New trends in Mathematical Statistics

Homepage of the CIMPA School in Mathematical Statistics


General Information

The main objective of the school is to boost the regional activities in mathematical statistics, with focus on some new research trends. 
We expect it will contribute to increase the interaction between researchers and students from Argentina, Brasil, Chile and Uruguay.
All lectures will be in English.
Dedicated to the memory of Mario Wschebor
