The Swedish Research Student Conference in Statistics, 2013

The Swedish Research Student Conference in Statistics will be held on 18-19 April 2013 in Stockholm and is now open for registration.

 

Call for presentations and discussions

We welcome everyone to participate the meeting however the number of speakers and and discussants are limited due to time limitation. So the priority will give to

Causal inference in register studies

In this course we introduce causal inference with main focus on two approaches; i) the potential outcome framework/ Rubin Causal Model and ii) Causal inference with graphical models.
Identification of causal effects in the two approaches is studied. Non and semi-parametric estimators of causal effects commonly associated with the potential outcome framework will be presented. A general  introduction to graphical models is also given.

Analysis of High-Dimensional Data

Jönköping International Business School, February 16-17, 2012

Welcome to a workshop on high-dimensional analysis, in particular if you are a research student or are supervising some with an interest in high-dimensional problems. The main idea is that we should learn who is doing what in this very interesting area. We interpret high-dimensional analysis in a very broad sense.

Advanced Probability and Inference

Content

  • Mathematical background (limits, series, order relations and rates of convergence, continuity, sets)
  • Measure theoretic foundations of probability (probability triplets, random variables, independence, expected values, change of variable)
  • Stochastic convergence (almost sure convergence, convergence in probability, convergence in distribution, laws of large numbers, central limit theorems, non-iid stochastic variables)
  • Conditional probability and expectation
  • Statistical tests (size and critical values, power, efficiency, asymptotic

Incomplete data: semi-parametric and Bayesian methods (Winter Conference)

Incomplete data is a common phenomenon in longitudinal studies based on surveys and/or population registers. In such studies individuals are followed through time and data may be incomplete due, e.g., to drop out/attrition (individuals intentionally leave the study, individuals leave the study because they move or die, etc.) and censoring (due to end of study, death, etc). Incomplete data may also arise due to selection mechanisms, for instance, in meta-analyses (publication bias) and causal inference in observational studies.
