First Announcement

We cordially invite you to the 4th Joint Statistical Meeting of the Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft Statistik (DAGStat 2016) from March 14 to 18, 2016, in Göttingen. Under the motto "Statistics under one Umbrella" the planned conference program contains contributions of all areas of statistics and many applications of statistical methods. Scientific exchange between the participating societies is one main aim of the conference. This is reflected by embedding three important annual meetings, the 62. "Biometrisches Kolloquium" (Biometric Society), the 40. "Jahrestagung der Gesellschaft für Klassifikation" (German Classification Society) and the "Pfingsttagung der Deutschen Statistischen Gesellschaft". The homepage DAGStat 2016 already provides information about main topics, invited speakers, traveling and accommodations in Göttingen. Please note that the Cebit fair in Hannover will take place at the same time so we recommend an early booking for accommodation. We gained Aurore Delaigle, Hans Rudolf Künsch, Simon Thompson and Adalbert Wilhelm as plenary speakers. Tutorials will be offered about the topics "Event Data Analysis" (Robin Henderson), "Evidence Synthesis" (Guido Knapp, Gerta Rücker, Guido Schwarzer), "Copulas in Practice" (Ostap Okhrin) and "Integer-valued Time Series" (Christian Weiß).

Online registration and submission of abstracts will be possible from July 15 to December 15, 2015.

Chair of the DAGStat
