Welcome!

This is the website for the Workshop on Semiparametric Statistics, which will be hosted by Ghent University from 13 to 14 December 2017. This is a two-day workshop that aims to bring together key players in modern advances in semiparametric statistics.

Program overview

From Wednesday December 13 9h00 until Thursday December 14 17h00.

The conference dinner will take place on December 13.

Sessions on

• Semiparametric efficiency and robustness
• High-dimensional inference
• Functional data analysis
• Survival analysis
• Applications in life sciences

Each session will have an invited speaker and two or three contributed talks.

We have received confirmation of several key players in the discipline:

Aurore Delaigle (University of Melbourne, Australia)
Thomas Gerds (University of Copenhagen, Denmark)
Marc Hallin (Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium)
Valentin Patilea (ENSAI, France)
Aad van der Vaart (Leiden University, The Netherlands)

The event will be held in Monasterium Poortackere in the city center of Ghent, Belgium. It was build in 1278 as a beguine house and after World War II it was used as an orphanage for young women. Nowadays it is a seminar center with a restaurant and guest house.
