The goal of this workshop is to promote and stimulate the exchanges of ideas in the field of spatial and spatio-temporal modelling.
Since recently, hierarchical methods know an important development.
The main purpose of this workshop is to compare hierarchical and non hierarchical methods in statistical analysis of spatial or spatio-temporal processes.
The topics will cover applied and methodological aspects.
