24th LASR (Leeds Annual Statistical Research) Workshop, Leeds, UK
4th - 6th July 2005

Second call for abstracts

The 24th Leeds Annual Statistical Research Workshop will focus on
developments in quantitative biology, shape analysis, and wavelet methods.
The use of shape analysis and wavelets in bioinformatics, proteomics, and
other biological applications is an emerging theme which we strongly
encourage, so contributions at the interface between these disciplines are
particularly welcome.

Confirmed speakers at LASR-2005 include

    * Philip Brown (Statistics, University of Kent)
    * Wally Gilks (MRC Biostatistics Unit, Cambridge)
    * Peter Green, FRS (Statistics, University of Bristol)
    * Valen Johnson (Biostatistics, University of Michigan)
    * David Jones (Bioinformatics, University College London)
    * Sir John Kingman, FRS (Newton Institute, University of Cambridge)
    * Andrew Neuwald (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) 


ABSTRACTS OF CONTRIBUTED PAPERS AND POSTERS ARE NOW REQUESTED

THE EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS IS 4TH MARCH 2005

Abstracts should be one or two paragraphs in length, outlining the work
that you would like to present, with one or two key references. If your
abstract is accepted, we will invite you to submit an extended abstract of
up to four pages for inclusion in the workshop proceedings. The deadline
for extended abstracts is likely to be the 31st of May 2005.


BACKGROUND

The Leeds Annual Statistics Research Workshop has become established over
recent years as an exciting international event in the Statistics
conference calendar. Last year, the workshop attracted approximately 70
participants, with eminent speakers both from overseas and the UK. Details
of previous workshops can be found on our webpages:

As usual the workshop format is a mixture of invited and contributed
talks, and posters. It has a tradition of being informal and relaxed, and
of encouraging interaction and discussion between the participants.
