 The workshop will bring together some leading experts on extreme value theory and other experts working on environmental sciences. The objective of the workshop is to look at recent advances on all aspects of extreme value theory with specific emphasis on its application in environmental sciences. One of the main objectives of the workshop is to encourage interaction of statisticians working on extreme value theory with non-statisticians working in environmental sciences to promote the correct and up-to-date use of methods available in extreme value theory in practice. The workshop will be composed of invited talks and contributed paper sessions, as well as discussion groups. It is hoped that the discussion groups will promote the desired interaction and lively discussions on new trends of extreme value theory and their application.
