Astrostatistics at the 60th World Statistics Congress

The biennial WSCs are the flagship conferences of the International Statistical Institute (ISI) and its seven associations. This is a very large gathering of worldwide statisticians. The Congress will have two Special Topics Sessions on Astrostatistics with talks on marked point processes, exoplanet statistics, Bayesian modeling of galaxy masses, and machine learning for cosmology.
