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 2000:

  1. Workshop on on the French Software on Multivariate Data Analysis SPAD, (organised on the scope of the Luso-French Co-operation Programme ICCTI/French Embassy) included in the JOCLAD2000 - VII Jornadas de Classificação e Análise de Dados - Faculdade de Psicologia e de Ciências de Educação da Universidade de Lisboa and INDEG/ ISCTE, March 2000. The organisers were: H. Bacelar-Nicolau , Otilia Dias, Ana Lorga and José Paredes, among others.
  2. The Euro Conference on Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology (AMCTM 2000), Portuguese Institute for Quality, Monte de Caparica, Portugal, from 10-13 May 2000. M. Ivette Gomes belonged to the International Programme Committee. Information still available at
  3. The 20th International Symposium on Forecasting (ISF'2000), Lisbon, 21-24 June, 2000. Information still available on M. Luisa Canto e Castro (a member of team 5) was a member of the Local Organizing Committee.
  4. Mathematics and Digital Art - Beyond the Third Dimension - Funchal, 2000 (Rita Vasconcelos, S. Mendonça (team 3) belonged to the Organization)
  5. Workshop VALCLASS II: "Validation des Structures de Classification et Extensions des Methodes Hierarchiques", (organised on the scope of the Luso-French Co-operation Programme ICCTI/French Embassy), Paris, France, September 21-22, 2000. H. Bacelar-Nicolau co-responsible for the organisation, with Yves Lechevallier-INRIA, Rocquencourt.

We have also pursued the preparation of the following international meetings to be held in 2001:

  1. The Advanced Workshop on Environmental Sampling and Monitoring, to take place in Estoril, Portugal, from 22 to 24 March 2001. Information available at
  2. The Meeting on Extreme Value Analysis: Theory and Practice, to be held in Leuven, Belgium, from 5-10th August 2001. M. Ivette Gomes (Team 5) belongs to the Programme Committee, and is organizing a session on Computer Intenseve Methods in Extreme Value Theory. Information available at
  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. Information available at Dinis Pestana and Rita Vasconcelos (team nº 3) are the President and Vice-President, respectively, of the Organizing Committee; Sandra Mendonça and Silvio Velosa (team nº 3), M. Ivette Gomes, M. Isabel Fraga Alves, M. L. Canto e Castro and M.I. Barão (team nº 5) and M. A. Amaral Turkman (team nº 6) 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.
  4. The EMPG2001 - 32nd European Mathematical Psychology Group Meeting - to be held at Faculdade de Psicologia e de Ciências de Educação da Universidade de Lisboa, September 2001. Organiser: H.Bacelar-Nicolau. The Organising Committee includes three members of team nº 4: H.Bacelar-Nicolau, Ana Sousa Ferreira and Otilia Dias.
  5. The 12th European Young Statisticians Meeting - Slovakia 2001. (Sandra Mendonça, Team 3, belongs to the Organization)

Several members of this Center (all research teams) are also working in the organization of the VIII Annual Conference of the Portuguese Statistical Society, a national conference with a few international invited speakers, to be held in San-Miguel, Azores, from 4 'till 10th November, 2001.
