Algebraic statistics is a maturing discipline focused on the applications of algebraic geometry and its computational tools in the study of statistical models. Initial results in the area were related to specific problems in categorial data analysis and experimental design, however a flurry of activity during the past several years has greatly increased the scope of the subject. Areas of interest now include graphical models, maximum likelihood estimation and Bayesian methods. Moreover, a strong connection has developed to applications in the physical and biological sciences. The field draws its tools not only from computational algebraic geometry but also from tropical, convex, and information geometry. Moreover, research in algebraic statistics has led to new directions in those fields. The workshop will be a meeting point for students and leaders in the field. It will present a focused activity parallel to the 2008-2009 program on Algebraic Methods in Systems Biology and Statistics being hosted by the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute. See below for the workshop schedule.
