Organisers: Aurore Delaigle (University of Melbourne), Frederic Ferraty (University of Toulouse),  Debashis Paul (University of California at Davis).

Program Description: In recent years, the field of functional data analysis has been widely used to answer science and policy questions, where the data are typically observed over time, space and other continuous variables. Current methodologies provide sophisticated computational techniques in solving complex problems in a wide range of application areas ranging from biomedical imaging, climate-environment interaction and unravelling networks evolving in time and space. After a period of prolific growth in computational techniques and methodological development, primarily motivated by diverse application areas, the time has come to consolidate the recent progress and provide a platform where researchers could exchange ideas and start collaboration on scientific projects and build a robust inferential framework for functional data analysis that take into account the increasing complexities of the data. This workshop is intended to bring together the leaders in this field, representatives of application areas, and promising young researchers to charter the path for future development in the field.
