The fourth “One World webinar” organized by YoungStatS will take place on June 30th, 2021. The topic of this webinar is on Functional Data Analysis. Selected young European researchers active in this area of research will present their contributions on spherical functional autoregressions, additive models, and clustering methods for functional data, with the focus on both theoretical developments and applications.

When & Where:

  • Wednesday, June 30th, 16:30 CEST

  • Online, via Zoom. The registration form is available here.


  • Alessia Caponera (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland): “Asymptotics for spherical functional autoregressions”

  • Alexander Volkmann (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany): “Multivariate Functional Additive Mixed Models”

  • Fabio Centofanti (University of Naples Federico II, Italy): “Sparse and Smooth Functional Data Clustering”


  • Juhyun Park (École nationale supérieure d'informatique pour l'industrie et l'entreprise, France)

The webinar is part of YoungStatS project of the Young Statisticians Europe initiative (FENStatS) supported by the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS).
