Recent challenges in model specification testing based on different data structures

Wednesday, November 9th, 8:00 PT / 11:00 ET / 17:00 CET

Model specification testing is one of the essential methodological tasks in statistics. Recently, with the development of different data structures, envisioning concepts from classical data setups to other environments becomes very important.

In the webinar, selected young statisticians will present their recent works and elaborate on different aspects of this topic.

  • Wednesday, November 9th, 8:00 PT / 11:00 ET / 17:00 CET
  • Online, via Zoom. The registration form is available here.
