Sunday Afternoon Tutorials

There will be three tutorials on the Sunday afternoon before the conference, each lasting 90 minutes, running sequentially:


Monte Carlo Methods by Art B. Owen


Markov Chain Monte Carlo Methods by Pierre del Moral


Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods by Josef Dick

The aim of these tutorials is to give an introduction to each of the topics for non-experts (i.e., at a graduate level). We encourage everyone who is interested in learning theoretical aspects of these fields to attend one or more of the tutorials. This should prepare participants for talks at the conference in the respective field.

The tutorials are free to all conference participants, but enrolments are necessary. The tutorials will only take place if there are sufficiently many enrolments.

To enrol in tutorials, please go to the login page. You can create an account first and pay the registration fee later. You must have an account before you can enrol in tutorials.
