StaTalks are one-day workshops on statistical topics during which the hosting group introduces and overviews the main research interests of their members.

Aimed at Master’s and PhD students, as well as at post-docs and young researchers, StaTalks are intended to be informal gatherings which allow for a more proficient interaction between presenters and participants.
They typically feature some introductory tutorials on the main workshop theme and a few seminars that overview more advanced research topics, still kept at an expository level. StaTalks are thus a great opportunity to become acquainted with the workshop main topic, as well as to share and update one's knowledge on the interface of Statistical research in an easy and informal atmosphere.

StaTalks are endorsed by the young section of the Italian Statistical Society (y-SIS)

The fifth StaTalk is hosted by the Department of Statistical Sciences of the University of Padua. The Department hosts researchers working on both methodological aspects and developing statistical methods for many applications ranging from Economics and Demography to Environmental Research, Life Sciences and Technology passing by Social and Health Sciences.

The Department is located in the historical building of the "Monastero di Santa Caterina d’Alessandria", a campus consisting of lecture rooms, computer labs, and a library all situated around a charming garden.
