I Workshop on Applied Statistics and Stochastic Processes

With the roundtable Women in Probability and Statistics


The "I Workshop on Applied Statistics and Stochastic Processes (WASSP)'" will be held at Center for Exact and Natural Sciences at Federal University of Pernambuco (CCEN-UFPE in Portuguese) in Recife - Pernambuco - Brazil, from 29th November to 1st December, 2023. The workshop will include a roundtable with the theme Women in Probability and Statistics.

The meeting will be realized with the main objective of promoting and encouraging women to collaborate and develop applied statistics and stochastic processes. The workshop aims to involve academic and professional statisticians with a particular focus on creating a network between women in statistics in the region of Pernambuco and Latin America.

The I WASSP is linked to the Graduate Program in Statistics at Federal University in Pernambuco, Recife - Pernambuco - Brazil. This Graduate Program attracted students from different areas of knowledge who are interested in the potential of statistical methods. The I WASSP aims to create a friendly and supportive atmosphere to exchange experiences and discuss the presence of women in Statistics, in order to define some strategies that help to have a greater participation of female leadership in the development and dissemination of science.
