Topic Area

This Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) conference will feature an intensive lecture series on elastic methods for statistical analysis of functional and shape data, using tools from Riemannian geometry, Hilbert space methods, and computational science. The main focus of this conference is on geometric approaches, especially on using elastic Riemannian metrics with desired invariance properties, and square-root representations that simplify computations. These approaches allow joint registration and statistical analysis of functional data, and are termed elastic for that reason. The statistical goals include comparisons, summarization, clustering, modeling, and testing of functional and shape data objects.

There is no travel/accomodation funding remaining, however we are still accepting applications to participate.

Travel and Lodging Info

  • Lodging - There are several great hotel and lodging options available near the Ohio State University Campus. For a full list of options and more information go here. The MBI is located in Jennings Hall at 1735 Neil Avenue on the 3rd floor and most OSU hotels should offer shuttle transportation to get you to and from the MBI on campus for the workshop each day.
  • Airport - When you arrive at John Glenn Columbus International airport-CMH you can take a taxi to your hotel (or find your hotel shuttle if offered) by going to the ground transportation area of the terminal where they offer 24-hour Airport taxi service.
  • Driving to MBI & Campus Parking - If you are driving to the workshop, the closest public parking garage near the MBI is the 12th Avenue Garage. The MBI is just a short walk east from here on 12th Ave. to the Intersection of Neil Ave. where we are located in Jennings Hall on the 3rd floor. Here is a Google walking map.

Primary Lecturer

Prof. Anuj Srivastava is a Professor of Statistics and a Distinguished Research Professor at Florida State University (FSU) in Tallahassee, FL. His main expertise lies in the use of techniques from algebra and differential geometry in deriving statistical inferences on nonlinear manifolds. Specifically, along with his colleagues, he has developed comprehensive Riemannian frameworks for shape analysis of objects, including scalar functions, Euclidean curves, 2D surfaces, and neuronal trees. He is an author, along with Prof. Eric Klassen of FSU, of a recently published Springer textbook on Functional and Shape Data Analysis. He has also published more than 200 papers in refereed journals and proceedings of refereed international conferences. He is a fellow of the IEEE, IAPR, and ASA.
