  Nowadays, in the Big Data and Artificial Intelligence era, with new technologies, statistics is at the core of numerous decisions and developments. The position of statistics in the world is increasing, the perception of statistics is changing as well, it is becoming more and more popular. Numerous statistical procedures are based on ad hoc methods supported by intensive computer assisted simulations, while statisticians and mathematicians not always know, face and confront there al issues of modern statistics. A much better understanding between statisticians and mathematicians is essential for development of both these fields. An urgent question is also: how to interacton the highest scientific level with world experts in medecine, epidemiology and genetics.
  The general interaction principle is well established: statistics needs mathematics in order to
have a solid base for its methodologies while mathematics (and probability, random matrix theory and harmonic analysis, in particular), benefits from statistics which poses new important challenges and, as it happened to be in the past, they may develop in beautiful and deep mathematical theories. The collaboration between two communities is crucial. Our aim is to gather in Luminy world class statisticians, who use excellent mathematics, and mathematicians who work in their area of interest. We plan to discuss recent achievements in modern statistics requiring an extensive use of deep mathematical methods and models.
We would like to put emphasis on detailed exposition of mathematics behind the tools used instatistics. It is important to as precisely as possible describe mathematical status quo of the recent achievements of modern statistics and even more important, to identify mathematical challenges of the modern statistical theories, responding to the urgent needs of model selection in medecine, epidemiology and genetics.
  Actuellement, dans l’époque des Big Data et de l’Intelligence Artificielle, avec les nouvelles technologies, la statistique moderne est au coeur des plusieurs décisions et progrès. Le XXIème siècle est celui des données volumineuses et les problèmes soulevés sont nombreux. Une meilleure communication entre statisticiens et mathématiciens est essentielle au développement de ces deux disciplines et de leurs applications. Une question urgente est aussi : comment interagir au plus haut niveau scientifique avec les experts en médecine, épidémiologie et génétique.
  La réciprocité perpétuelle entre statistique et mathématique est bien établie : les statistiques ont besoin des mathématiques comme solide base méthodologique alors que les mathématiques se nourissent des évolutions technologiques pour résoudre de nouveaux défis grâce à de très belles théories et nouveaux formalismes. La collaboration entre ces deux communautés devient cruciale.
  Notre objectif est de réunir à Luminy des statisticiens de renommée internationale, qui utilisent des mathématiques profondes, et des mathématiciens qui travaillent sur ces problèmes. Les dicussions tourneront autour des récentes avancées en statistiques modernes utilisant de manière extensive de complexes modèles mathématiques et probabilistes. Nous aimerions aborder notamment les outils mathématiques nécessaires aux statistiques modernes et d’écrire de manière très précise les principaux enjeux mathématiques issus des statistiques modernes. Cette conférence a pour objectif d’établir des relations et une meilleure compréhension de ces interactions.
