The seventh edition of the IN2P3 School Of Statistics will give an overview of the concepts and tools used in particle physics, astro-particle physics and cosmology when probabilities and statistics come to play.
This school is targeted towards PhD students and senior physicists, aiming at extending their knowledge and skills in the field of statistical tools and frameworks developed for their fields.

The school will take place in the region of Marseille from Monday 11 May to Friday 15 May 2020.

The school combines lectures and hands-on sessions. The lectures are subdivided into three sections:

  • a reminder of the fundamental concepts used in Probabilities, Statistics and Hypothesis testing applied to physics analysis;
  • the presentation of the concepts and basics of most popular multivariate techniques;
  • and a section dedicated to actual multivariate tools and machine learning.

All lectures will be given in English. The School Of Statistics is supported by CNRS/IN2P3.

Financial support:
