TIME Series, Quantile Regression and model choice

September 20-21, 2010

TU Dortmund, Campus Treff (map of the area)

The Collaborative Research Center "Statistical Modelling of Nonlinear Dynamic Processes" (SFB 823), supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG),  is proud to announce an international workshop on “Time Series, Quantile Regression and Model Choice”, to be held in Dortmund, Germany, on September 20th/21st 2010. The aim is to bring together internationally renowned experts in these areas with the researchers of SFB 823 in order to review recent developments and initiate scientific exchange. The Workshop is in part a continuation of the successful series of “Brussels-Waseda Seminars on Time Series and Financial Statistics”.
