International Conference on Robust Statistics 2012

Dear colleagues, We are pleased to announce that the University of Vermont will be hosting the upcoming International Conference on Robust Statistics. The conference will be held from August 5 to August 10, 2012 on the campus of the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont, USA. August 5-10 is the week after the Joint Statistical Meetings in San Diego.

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.

ICORS welcomes contributions to applied statistics as well as theoretical statistics, and in particular new problems related to robust statistics and data analysis. The following areas are expected to be well represented at the conference, but contributed talks on other related topics are also welcomed.

    * Concepts and theory of robust statistics
    * Asymptotic theory and efficiency
    * Novel applications of robust statistical methods
    * Robust and nonparametric multivariate statistics
    * Robust functional data analysis
    * Robust regression, including quantile regression
    * Linear and generalized linear models;  mixed models
    * Biostatistics
    * Statistical methods in bioinformatics/genetics
    * Statistical computing and graphics and data mining
    * Data mining and machine learning
