Royal Statistical Society grants unconditional accreditation to the department's undergraduate programmes
The Royal Statistical Society has accredited all six of the department's undergraduate programmes on an unconditional basis for students entering in 2022/2023. This means that any student graduating from one of our programmes will have the opportunity to gain Graduate Statistician (GradStat) status with the RSS. GradStat status adds further value to your degree qualification and the chance to access further professional development opportunities.
Warwick researchers in Statistics build DiAGRAM to help archivists ensure that the 1921 census and other archives remain digitally available
Warwick researchers in Statistics build DiAGRAM to help archivists ensure that the 1921 census and other archives remain digitally available as technologies become obsolete and carriers deteriorate.
Registration and abstract submission for the Research Students’ Conference in Population Genetics 2022 is now open
It is aimed at research students interested in mathematical and statistical population genetics, and will primarily consist of student talks alongside plenary sessions given from researchers covering a mixture of academic career stages.
The conference will consist of a three-day meeting held in the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick from 29th June to 1st July 2022. The conference will be run in person, but will have provisions for attendees to watch the talks online. The conference is partially funded by the London Mathematical Institute, Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, the UKRI/EPSRC Additional Funding Programme for Mathematical Science, and Warwick Statistics Department.
We have accommodation and subsistence grants available to a UK-based postgraduate research students. We also have funds available to help with costs which may constitute a barrier to entry, such as childcare, transport of mobility equipment, or other bespoke arrangements on a case-by-case basis.
Registration is now open from the conference webpage until 30th April 2022, with abstract submissions open until 31st May 2022.

Harita's paper titled "Robust Bayesian Inference for Simulator-based Models via the MMD Posterior Bootstrap" has been invited for an oral presentation (44 out of the 492 accepted papers) at this year's AISTATS 2022 conference https://aistats.org/aistats2022/
EPSRC grant success for Aleks Mijatovic
Aleks Mijatovic, with colleagues at the University of Durham has been successful in winning an EPSRC grant worth over £1 million to develop novel robust probabilistic techniques for the analysis of certain multidimensional diffusion processes exhibiting non-Markovian and/or reflecting behaviour and possessing universal features. The grant will fund postdoctoral researchers at both Warwick and Durham.
