Statistical Theory and Methodology

Comittee Chair: Prof. Dr. Matei Demetrescu (Dortmund University) 
Vice-Chair: Prof. Dr. Harry Haupt (University of Passau)
New election: Fall 2024


Task, Goals and Contents:

The committee provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of all issues in statistical theory and methodology. Scientific contributions of all kinds are welcome, from pure statistical theory, to applied statistical methods, computational statistics, and data analysis, to empirical applications, as long as they are based on statistical methodology. Meetings of the committee are also occasionally held under a framework theme. The committee sees itself primarily as a podium for young scientists in the field of statistics. PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, and other young scientists who wish to present their research results are therefore particularly welcome.

Topic Selection:

  • General estimation and test theory
  • Methods and applications of time series analysis
  • Generalized linear models
  • Computational statistics and data analysis
  • Applications of special new methods

Foundig Notice:
The Committee emerged in 1957 from the Sampling Methods Committee, which was founded in 1949.
