The third “One World webinar” organized by YoungStatS will take place on May 19th, 2021. The focus of this webinar will be on composite-based structural equation modeling, particularly on partial least squares path modeling (Wold, 1982; Lohmöller, 1989) and approaches to assess composite models. The webinar will present some of the most interesting and recent theoretical developments and applications from younger scholars active in this area of research.

When & Where:

  • Wednesday, May 19th, 16:00 CEST

  • Online, via Zoom. The registration form is available here.


  • Benjamin Liengaard (Aarhus University, Denmark): ‘Measurement Invariance Testing with Latent Variable Scores using Partial Least Squares Path Modeling’

  • Nicholas Danks (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland): ‘The Role of Prediction in Composite Modeling’

  • Florian Schuberth (University of Twente, The Netherlands): ‘Confirmatory Composite Analysis’


The webinar is part of YoungStatS project of the Young Statisticians Europe initiative (FENStatS) supported by the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS).
