The working group (WG) CMStatistics focuses on all computational and methodological aspects of statistics. Of particular interest is research in important statistical applications areas where both computational and/or methodological aspects have a major impact. The aim is threefold: first, to consolidate the research in computational and methodological statistics that is scattered throughout Europe; second to provide researches with a network from which they can obtain an unrivalled sources of information about the most recent developments in computational and methodological statistics as well as its applications; third to edit quality publications of high impact and significance in the broad interface of computing, methodological statistics and its applications.
The journal Computational Statistics and Data Analysis (CSDA) is currently an official publication of CMStatistics. CMStatistics edits special issues and publishes papers in regular issues in CSDA. Moreover, CMStatistics has recently started to edit the journal Econometrics and Statistics, published by Elsevier.
The WG comprises a number of specialized teams in various research areas of computational and methodological statistics. The teams act autonomously within the framework of the WG in order to promote their own research agenda. Their activities are endorsed by the WG. They submit research proposals, organize sessions, tracks and tutorials during the annual WG meetings and edit the journal Econometrics and Statistics (EcoSta) and special issues of the journals Computational Statistics & Data Analysis (CSDA) and EcoSta.
The speacialized teams are listed here: Specialized Teams.
CMStatistics also collaborates with the COST Action CRoNoS in the organization of training schools, specialized workshops and other activities to promote the research among young researcher.
