SMC 2020

SMC 2020 postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak

We have been forced to cancel the SMC 2020 meeting as originally scheduled for May 27, 2020, because of the covid-19 epidemic.

Once the situation becomes safe, we will announce new dates & programme for the meeting, hopefully in the spring or early summer of 2021. Please, check this site from time to time!

All registration fees will be reimbursed.


Special issue on sequential Monte Carlo methods of the Foundations of Data Science journal. All participants are invited to contribute with a journal version of their talk/poster presentation.

About SMC 2020

Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) methods, also known as particle filters or particle methods, have become popular and powerful tools for computational inference in complex probabilistic models used in many and varied fields and applications, including meteorology and oceanography, electrical and aerospace engineering (target tracking, sensor networks, etc.), biochemistry, ecology and several others. The aim of this workshop is to:

  1. Bring together researchers developing and using SMC methods in various scientific fields (both in academia and industry).
  2. Open up the field to researchers and users who are new to SMC methods. We will emphasise the interaction of SMC with related areas of research (such as machine learning or data science) where computational inference plays a key role.

Where and when?

The Workshop will be held on the Legan├ęs campus of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, from May 27 to May 29, 2020.
