I denne foredragsserien inviterer vi utenlandske gjester, forskere fra andre universiteter og andre institutter, statistikere fra ulike arbeidsplasser samt ansatte og studenter fra vårt eget institutt til å presentere sine forskningsresultater. Foredragene vil variere i innhold og form, og er selvfølgelig åpne for alle.
Foredragene vil finne sted (dersom ikke annet er oppgitt)
Tirsdager kl 14.15-15.15 i seminarrom B81, 8. etasje i Matematikkbygningen (Niels Henrik Abels hus), Blindern
Programmet annonseres her og per epost etterhvert som det blir klart. Eventuelle spørsmål kan rettes til seminaransvarlige

Welcome to the Abel Symposium 2014 in Lofoten. The symposium will bring researchers together to discuss statistical analysis for high-dimensional data.
[This is a closed event by invitation only, but a proceedings will be published by Springer (linked here).]
Martin Jullum (Department of Mathematics, UiO), gives a seminar in Auditorium 4, Vilhelm Bjerknes house, at 14:15, Tuesday March 4th:
Parametric or Nonparametric: The Focused Information Criterion Approach
The 14th Annual Winter School of eVITA/SINTEF will be held January 19-24th 2014 in Geilo. The topic for the 2014 school is Big data challenges to modern statistics, with several internationally renowned experts giving a series of lectures on the subject.

Penalized Regression with Measurement Error
Over the last decades important methodological advances have been made for designing and analysing nested case-control and case-cohort studies. While some of these methodologies need further developments before they can be widely used, others have matured to a level that makes them ready to use in epidemiological practice. The focus of the workshop is on the methodologies that are ready to use. The workshop is aimed at biostatisticians and epidemiologists who work with population registry data and large cohorts studies. It is assumed that the participants are familiar with cohort and classical case-control studies and the regression models used to analyse them (logistic regression and Cox regression).
Rand Kwong Yew Low (UQ Business School, University of Queensland, Brisbane) will talk about
