|Title:||Info-Metrics Institute | Workshop: November 2012 Info-Metrics and Nonparametric Inference
|Description:||Conference Objectives The one day conference is organized jointly by the Info-Metrics Institute, American University and the Department of Economics of University of California, Riverside.
Interest in nonparametric estimation and inference goes back half a century but has rapidly increased recently (especially with recent advances in computing power) with many new directions of research that cover a vast range of applications in different disciplines. Ongoing research on information-theoretic estimation and inference methods is similarly inter-disciplinary, involving information theory, engineering, mathematical statistics, econometrics and the natural sciences.
This one day conference will explore recent advances in the area of nonparametric estimation and inference and in info-metrics, which may help current and future research combining nonparametric procedures with information-theoretic methods.
The conference organizers encourage submissions of papers on any topic within this overall theme with a particular emphasis on the list below.
Conference Topics Nonparametric procedures and info-metrics methods Nonparametric and Information-Theoretic Estimation and Inference Methods Density and Regression Estimation (Nonparametric and Information Methods) Kernel estimation and info-metrics Mixed data estimation Quantile estimation Nonparametric and Information time series analysis Nonparametric and Information based panel data models
