Invited Speakers

We are pleased to announce that the following leading scientists are expected to speak at LASR 2017:


We proudly announce the forthcoming 2017 Leeds Annual Statistical Research (LASR) Workshop which will be held on 26 - 28 June 2017 at the University of Leeds.  It will be held jointly with, and funded by, the EU funded MIMOmics network.

It was in 1975 when Leeds hosted a research symposium where distinguished and prominent figures in statistics attended. The research symposium later became our annual LASR Workshops, and four decades of the Workshops were celebrated at the 2015 LASR Workshop.


A tentative programme is available to download here.
