Life event history analysis: Two days seminar in honour of Professor Ørnulf Borgan's 70th anniversary (as well as his 71st and 72nd).

We invite you (once again) to a two-day seminar celebrating Professor Ørnulf Borgans many and substantial contributions to statistics in general and life event history analysis in particular.
