The main objective of the workshop are as:
- To familiarize the researchers of forestry and environmental sciences to the basics and introduce to them the recent developments in multidisciplinary data science.
- To expose the researchers to the modern developments of deterministic modelling in the areas of applied Statistics with the motivations and enhancements to their generalizations to the corresponding stochastic models.
- To promote the interaction and collaboration between academicians/researchers at the national level with the emerging real-life problems in our national scenario in the areas of environmental sciences with emphasis to forestry statistics
- To facilitate and coordinate the development of environment and forestry statistical methods in statistical software R (freely available) and possibly STATISTICA/MATHEMATICA/MATLAB/SPSS/Systat.
The technical sessions of the workshop will consist of invited lectures by eminent speakers and oral presentation of paper by selected participants in the given thematic areas:
