International Conference on Robust Statistics 2015 (ICORS 2015)


The International Conference on Robust Statistics 2015 (ICORS 2015) will be held at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, India between 12 and 16 January 2015.

The International Conference on Robust Statistics (ICORS) has been an annual international conference since 2001. The aim of the conferences is to bring together researchers interested in robust statistics, data analysis and related areas. This includes theoretical and applied statisticians as well as data analysts from other fields, and leading experts as well as junior researchers and graduate students.

The ICORS meetings create a forum to discuss recent progress and emerging ideas in statistics and encourage informal contacts and discussions among all the participants. They also play an important role in maintaining a cohesive group of international researchers interested in robust statistics and related topics, whose interactions transcend the meetings and endure all year round.

The conference welcomes contributions to applied statistics as well as theoretical statistics, and in particular new problems related to robust statistics and data analysis. The conference will include, but will not necessarily be limited to, presentations on the following topics; however contributions from all areas of robust statistics are welcome.

•Concepts and theory of robust statistics
•Asymptotic theory and efficiency
•Robust and nonparametric multivariate statistics
•Robust time series analysis
•Linear and generalized linear models
•Robust statistics in business and finance
•Robust estimation of income and allied size distributions; ethical indices
•Robust statistics in bioinformatics/genetics
•Statistical computing, graphics and data mining
•Statistical inference based on divergence measures
