Scientific Program


Monday will be devoted to an introductory course about theoretical and practical aspects of the statistical analysis of compositional data. The workshop will run from Tuesday to Friday and will feature a number of distinguished keynote speakers, invited and contributed sessions and poster discussions. There will be no parallel sessions.
