The number and size of available data sets of different types has increased dramatically over the past twenty years. This increase has triggered a shift from hypothesis-driven research to data-driven research in many scientific areas. The recent fields of selective inference and post-selection inference aim at developing mathematically sound frameworks to provide confidence statements on findings that may have undergone selection effects (cherry-picking). This is particularly challenging in biomedical sciences and neuro-imaging, where the data are typically heterogeneous and complex.

The goal of this workshop is to discuss these challenges and present dedicated innovative approaches and their applications.
