International Conference on Nonparametric Methods for Measurement Error Models and Related Topics

School of Mathematics and Statistics, Carleton University

Organizers: A.K.Md.Ehsanes Saleh and M.Ould Haye
For additional information contact A. K. E. Saleh []

Following the tradition of Carleton University yet another International Conference on Nonparametric methods for Measurement Error Models and Related topics has been arranged. In recent years, the scope of application of measurement error models has widened in biostatistics, bio -pharmakinetics , and DNA analysis to name a few among others. Our aim is to rejuvenate the research activity in nonparametric statistics by bringing scholars from all around the globe in this conference to exchange ideas for future developments to meet the need of application . Although, there is vast amount of literature on this topic, there is slow growth in developing robust inference techniques such as rank test and estimation , shrinkage estimation and S-test and estimation in measurement error models. This conference will focus on the current activities in parametric and nonparametric methods and consider new directions on the approach one should take developing these area of research.
