Workshop Statistics of Lévy-driven Models

The workshop takes place at Ulm University, Germany, from Thursday, March 15 to Friday, March 16, 2012 and is organised as a part of the DFG funded research project "Statistics of Lévy-driven Models".

The aim of the conference is to bring together a range of researchers in statistics of Lévy-driven models to present their work and exchange ideas.

There will be a registration fee of 50 EUR for all participants except invited speakers. While talks are on invitation only, there will be an open poster session on Thursday afternoon.


Vicky Fasen, Jens-Peter Kreiß, Alexander Lindner and Robert Stelzer.


A registration form can be found here (pdf-file) or here (doc-file). If you wish to attend the workshop, please fill out the registration form and send it back to Eva Nacca via e-mail, fax (please use the fax number given in the form) or regular mail. In the form you can also specify whether or not you would like to present a poster within the designated session on Thursday afternoon. Please note that the conference fee is 50 EUR (except for invited speakers) and should be paid by March 1, 2012. In case of any queries regarding the registration or the workshop itself, please feel free to contact Eva Nacca.

If you want to apply to present a poster, you have to register by February 24th. Presumably on February 27th notifications about the accepted posters will be emailed.

Travel information

A site plan of the campus and detailed travel information can be found here.

The conference will take place in the "Senatssaal", Helmholtzstraße 16. The room is situated in the basement of the administration building Helmholtzstraße 16 which can be found on that map as "Universitätsverwaltung" (the left one of the two blue buildings in Helmholtzstraße). The best way to get there is by bus line 3 (coming from city centre and central station). The stop is "Botanischer Garten". From there you walk approximately 5 minutes to Helmholtzstraße 16.
