Methods Week in Statistics: Simultaneous statistical inference and multiple testing

The Center for Statistics in Oldenburg and Bremen (ZeSOB) organizes its first

Methods Week in Statistics on the topic: “Simultaneous statistical inference and multiple testing”

from September 26th to 29th, 2016, at the University of Bremen, Building SFG, Lecture Hall 0140,

The course is targeted to practitioners and application-oriented statisticians. After an introduction to the problem of multiple testing, we will present a variety of simultaneous inference methods and multiple test procedures, together with their software implementations and their methodological background. Focus will be on applications and on the appropriate choice of methods for concrete model classes and problems.
