GermanJapanese Workshop
After a 1st JapaneseGerman Workshop (Tokyo, 2005) and a 2nd GermanJapanese Workshop (Berlin, 2006) selected papers of which have been published in a special issue of the Springer series "Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization” (Title: Cooperation in Classification and Data Analysis, Editors: A. Okada, T. Imaizumi, H.H. Bock, W. Gaul) a 3rd GermanJapanese Workshop is planned that will take place together with the 34th Annual Conference of the German Classification Society in Karlsruhe. The workshop will be held on July 20 – 21, 2010.
The number of contributions will have to be restricted to 3040 papers with approximately 15 – 20 presentations each by Japanese and by German researchers.

5th GermanJapanese Workshop on Classification
September 11, 2016 – September 13, 2016After a 1st JapaneseGerman Workshop (Tokyo, 2005), a 2nd in Berlin (2006), a 3rd in Karlsruhe (2010), a fourth in Kyoto (2012), it is now time to continue this extremely successfull series, which was founded by Wolfgang Gaul, with a fifth workshop in 2016. As before the focus will be on classification and is generally open to all.
Location this time is the beautiful city of Günzburg with its Reisensburg Castle. Nearby attractions are Ulm (birthplace of Albert Einstein, cathedral, etc.), Lake Constance, Neuschwanstein, Munich just to name a few.
As before, selected papers can be published in a special issue of the "Archives of Data Science”.
For time and space reasons is the number of contributions limited to 3040 presentations and papers with approximately 15 – 20 presentations by Japanese and by German researchers.

Statistical Computing
The workshop "Statistical Computing" is held annually by the Working Groups "Statistical Computing" of the GMDS/IBSDR and "Biostatistics" of the GfKl. The meeting offers a forum for the discussion of methodological developments in the field of statistical computing. Special emphasis is given on applications in the life sciences, but contributions from other research areas are also very welcome.
The location of the "Statistical Computing" workshops is Reisensburg Castle near Ulm (Germany), which provides onsite accommodation and food for the participants. The workshop is usually started on Sunday by a keynote talk held by an expert in the field of statistical computing. In the following days the program includes contributed talks, handson tutorials and at least one more keynote talk. The number of participants is typically around 40, which facilitates productive and enjoyable discussions.
