ICORS2012      ICORS2012      ICORS2012

The International Conference on Robust Statistics (ICORS) has been an annual international conference since 2001. The aim of the conferences is to bring together researchers interested in robust statistics, data analysis and related areas. This includes theoretical and applied statisticians as well as data analysts from other fields, and leading experts as well as junior researchers and graduate students.

The ICORS meetings create a forum to discuss recent progress and emerging ideas in statistics and encourage informal contacts and discussions among all the participants.
They also play an important role in maintaining a cohesive group of international researchers interested in robust statistics and related topics, whose interactions transcend the meetings and endure year round.

The previous ICORS meetings were held in Vorau, Austria (2001), Vancouver, Canada (2002), Antwerp, Belgium  (2003), Beijing, China (2004), Jyväskylä, Finland (2005), Lisbon, Portugal (2006), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2007), Antalya, Turkey (2008), Parma, Italy (2009), Prague, The Czech Republic (2010), and Valladolid, Spain (2011).
ICORS welcomes contributions to applied statistics as well as theoretical statistics, and in particular new problems related to robust statistics and data analysis. The following areas are expected to be well represented at the conference, but contributed talks on other related topics are also welcomed. 
  • Concepts and theory of robust statistics
  • Asymptotic theory and efficiency
  • Novel applications of robust statistical methods 
  • Robust and nonparametric multivariate statistics   
  • Robust functional data analysis
  • Robust regression, including quantile regression 
  • Linear and generalized linear models;  mixed models
  • Biostatistics
  • Statistical methods in bioinformatics/genetics
  • Statistical computing and graphics and data mining
  • Data mining and machine learning
