V International Workshop on Proximity Data, Multivariate Analysis and Classification

V International Workshop on Proximity Data, Multivariate Analysis and Classification

Annual meeting of the SEIO Working Group on Multivariate Analysis and Classification, AMyC. Valladolid, July 11 – 12, 2023.

The V International Workshop on Proximity Data, Multivariate Analysis and Classification will take place during July, 11-12, 2023 in Valladolid (Spain). It is organized by the Spanish Group on Multivariate Analysis and Classification, AMyC-SEIO (, which is a Working Group of more than 70 researchers from all the Spanish universities. Every year (except for the pandemic period), the Working Group organizes a meeting to promote the communication between its members and between them and other researchers, and to contribute to the development of the Multivariate Analysis and Classification field and related problems and applications. Previous meetings were held in Granada, Barcelona and Salamanca (

The topics of interest comprise any related problem to Multivariate Analysis and Classification both from a theoretical or a computational point of view, and their applications. It therefore includes topics related to unsupervised or supervised statistical learning and also those related to big data analysis.

Call for Papers -3nd International Workshop on eXplainable Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare

eXplainable AI in Healthcare 2023 (XAI-Healthcare)
3rd International Workshop on eXplainable Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare
during AIME 2023
Jun 15, 2023 – Portoroz, Slovenia

Concha Bielza, Dept. of Artificial Intelligence, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid
Pedro Larrañaga, Dept. of Artificial Intelligence, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid
Primoz Kocbek, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Maribor
Jose M. Juarez, Faculty of Computer Science, University of Murcia
Gregor Stiglic, MedAI Lab, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Maribor
Alfredo Vellido, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya and UPC BarcelonaTech

The purpose of XAI-Healthcare 2023 event is to provide a place for intensive discussion on all aspects of eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) in the medical and healthcare field. This should result in cross-fertilization among research on Machine Learning, Decision Support Systems, Natural Language, Human-Computer Interaction, and Healthcare sciences. This meeting will also provide attendees with an opportunity to learn more on the progress of XAI in healthcare and to share their own perspectives. The panel discussion will provide participants with the insights on current developments and challenges from the researchers working in this fast-developing field.

Explainable AI (XAI) aims to address the problem of understanding how decisions are made by AI systems by designing formal methods and frameworks for easing their interpretation. The impact of AI in clinical settings and the trust placed in such systems by clinicians have been a growing concern related to the risk of introducing AI into the healthcare environment. Explainable AI in healthcare is a multidisciplinary area addressing this challenge by combining AI technologies, cognitive modelling, healthcare science, ethical and legal issues. Therefore, this workshop aims to outline future directions for XAI and highlight the importance of developing algorithmic solutions that can enable XAI driven decision making in high-stakes healthcare problems.

ENBIS Webinar: «Digital Twins: Hype or hope?». Wednesday 15 March 2023, 14:00 CET

Digital Twins: Hype or Hope?

Speaker: Mark Girolami (University of Cambridge)

Moderator: Shirley Coleman (Newcastle University)

Date: 15th March 2013, 14:00 CET (see in your local time)

More information and registration to the webinar

The idea of an Intelligent Digital Avatar conjures up many images from a complete virtual world that one can safely define, develop and play in to rogue robots running amok and destroying mankind. The reality is much less dramatic but no less far reaching and exciting. This talk will discuss Digital Twins and chart their history to present day technological capability and present some of the advances being made and the opportunities along with the open challenges faced to realise the potential of Digital Twins.

The European Meeting of Statisticians (EMS), sponsored by the European Regional Committee of the Bernoulli Society, is the main conference in statistics and probability in Europe. EMS is a conference where statisticians from all regions meet to exchange ideas and talk about the newest developments in the broad field of statistics and probability theory.  The very first EMS meeting was held in Dublin in 1962, and the 34th European Meeting of Statisticians (EMS 2023) – will take place in Warsaw.

The meeting is organized by the University of Warsaw, Warsaw University of Technology, and the Polish Mathematical Society under the auspices of the Committee of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of
Sciences. The conference will be held at the campus of the University of Warsaw.  The program consists of invited and contributed lectures, and posters, addressing a full range of subjects in statistics and its many applications.

We hope that you will be able to participate and to contribute to the success of the meeting.

Title: Applications of Interior Point methods: from Sparse Approximations to Discrete Optimal Transport
Abstract: A variety of problems in modern applications of optimization require a selection of a ‘sparse’ solution, a vector with preferably few nonzero entries.  Such problems may originate from very different applications in computational statistics, signal or image processing or compressed sensing, finance, machine learning and discrete optimal transport, to mention just a few. Sparse approximation problems are often solved with dedicated and highly specialised first-order methods of optimization. In this talk I will argue that these problems may be very efficiently solved by the more reliable optimization techniques which involve some use of the (inexact) second-order information as long as this is combined with appropriately chosen iterative techniques of linear algebra, such as for example methods from the Krylov-subspace family. Two particular classes of methods, the Newton Conjugate Gradient and the Interior Point Method will be interpreted as suitable homotopy type approaches and will be applied to solve problems arising from: compressed sensing, multi-period portfolio optimization, classification of data coming from functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, restoration of images corrupted by Poisson noise, classification via regularized logistic regression, and discrete optimal transport. In all these cases, the performance of the proposed methods will be compared against competitive first-order methods. Computational evidence will be provided to demonstrate that specialized second-order methods compare favourably and often outperform the cutting-edge first-order methods.
