Modern astronomy and cosmology heavily rely on statistical methods. At the same time, the recent explosion of available data, which for instance results from current and future astronomical sky surveys, provides unique challenges, and opportunities, to statistics. Several statistical challenges appearing in astrophysical research also arise in other fields of physics, such as particle physics.

The aim of this workshop is to foster the interchange of ideas among astronomers, physicists and statisticians working at, and with, the University of Padova. The event has three sessions dedicated to academic talks by senior researchers, a junior speed session and a poster session open to a limited number of participants, who will be notified after the abstract review has been completed.

Registration to the workshop is open, though because of the limited places available it will be limited to 80 participants. A registration fee of 25 Euro is required. Registration fee waivers for students are available and will be distributed at the discretion of the scientific committee.
