The 7th International Conference of the ERCIM WG on Computational and Methodological Statistics (ERCIM 2014) will take place at the University of Pisa, Italy, 6-8 December 2014. Tutorials will be given on Friday 5th of December 2014.
This conference is organized by the ERCIM Working Group on Computational and Methodological Statistics (CMStatistics) and the University of Pisa. The journal Computational Statistics & Data Analysis publishes selected papers in special peer-reviewed, or regular issues.
The Conference will take place jointly with the 8th International Conference on Computational and Financial Econometrics (CFE 2014). The conference has a high reputation of quality presentations. The last editions of the joint conference CFE-ERCIM gathered over 1200 participants.
All topics within the Aims and Scope of the ERCIM Working Group CMStatistics will be considered for oral and poster presentation.
Topics includes, but not limited to: robust methods, statistical algorithms and software, high-dimensional data analysis, statistics for imprecise data, extreme value modeling, quantile regression and semiparametric methods, model validation, functional data analysis, Bayesian methods, optimization heuristics in estimation and modelling, computational econometrics, quantitative finance, statistical signal extraction and filtering, small area estimation, latent variable and structural equation models, mixture models, matrix computations in statistics, time series modeling and computation, optimal design algorithms and computational statistics for clinical research.
