DMC - Salzburg

Aims & Scope

The Salzburg workshop on Dependence Models and Copulas will take place September 19-22, 2016, in Salzburg (Austria) and feature the following plenary speakers:

Irène Gijbels (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, BE)
Erich Peter Klement (JKU Linz, AT)
Roger B. Nelsen (Lewis & Clark College, Portland, US)
Ludger Rüschendorf (Albert-Ludwig-Universität Freiburg, DE)
Matthias Scherer (Technische Universität München, DE)

Aiming to provide a meeting point for researchers working in the field of Dependence Modeling and Copulas the workshop exhibits both, contributions with a theoretical focus as well as contributions concentrating on applied aspects. In order to stimulate the discussion of new results, ideas and applications there will be no parallel sessions. Fees are kept at a minimum: 140 € for regular participants, 80 € for PhD Students (including lunches, coffee breaks and conference dinner).

Due to an unexpectedly high number of submitted contributed abstracts in particular from Phd students the workshop is extended by one day to Thursday, September 22. Thursday will mainly be devoted to early stage researchers - in each session there will be a (senior) discussant, who will comment on the presented results and outline possible connections to related work and applicable tools (whenever appropriate).

Dependence Modeling (De Gruyter Open) will publish a special issue related to the workshop with planned appearance date April 2017. Papers from corresponding authors taking part in the workshop will have publication charges completely waived for submissions to this special issue.

Registration for non-presenting participants open till August 15th, 2016, see Fees & Registration

We are looking forward to welcome you in Salzburg
