3. Organization of Scientific international meetings.

Members of the C.E.A.U.L. have been responsible for the organization of the following international meetings in 1999:

  1. ASMDA-99: IX International Symposium on Applied Stochastic Models and Data Analysis, (biannual symposium), Lisbon, Portugal, June 14-17, 1999. Responsible for the organisation: Helena Bacelar-Nicolau (F. Costa Nicolau (Univ Nova de Lisboa) and Jacques Janssen (Univ. Bruxelles) co-responsible); José Alexandre Paredes and Otilia Dias , members of the Local Organisation.
     
  2. Workshop on Statistical Modelling - Extreme Values and Additive Laws, Estoril, Portugal, 2-7 October, 1999. A few members research team nº 5 (M. Ivette Gomes, M. Isabel Fraga Alves and M. Luisa Canto e Castro) together with Dinis Pestana (from team nº 3) organized in 1999 an international workshop, under the auspices of C.I.M. (International Mathematics Center) and the C.E.A.U.L. (Center of Statistics and Applications of the University of Lisbon).
     
  3. Luso-French Workshop: "Validation des Structures de Classification et Extensions des Methodes Hierarchiques", (organized on the scope of the Luso-French Co-operation Programme ICCTI/French Embassy), Tomar, Portugal, December 9 - 10, 1999. Responsible for the organization: Helena Bacelar-Nicolau (Yves Lechevallier -INRIA, Rocquencourt, co-responsible).
     

We have also pursued the preparation of the following international meetings to be held in 2000:

  1. The 20th International Symposium on Forecasting (ISF'2000), to be held in Lisbon from 21-24 June, 2000. Information available on http://www.isf2000.pt. M. Luisa Canto e Castro (a member of team 5) belongs to the Organizing Committee.
     
  2. The Euro Conference on Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology (AMCTM 2000), to be held at the Portuguese Institute for Quality, Monte de Caparica, Portugal, from 10-13 May. M. Ivette Gomes belongs to the International Programme Committee. Information available at http://www.ipq.pt\amctm00.html.
     
  3. The European Meeting of Statisticians, one of the most relevant international Conferences in the field of Statistics, to be held in Funchal in August 2001. No web site yet available. Dinis Pestana and Rita Vasconcelos (team nº 3) are the President and Vice-President, respectively, of the Organizing Committee; M. Ivette Gomes and M. Isabel Fraga Alves (team nº 5) and Sandra Mendonça (team nº 3) belong to the Organizing Committee of the Conference. Anthony C. Davison, on the behalf of the Scientific Committee, invited M. Ivette Gomes (team nº 5) to organize a paper session of 110 minutes in Statistics of Extremes, and K.F. Turkman (team nº 6) to organize a session of 110 minutes in Environmental Statistics.
