Exploring the limits of advanced meta-analysis

International Workshop IBS-DR Working Group "Nonparametric Methods" (AG Nichtparametrische Methoden)

September 30-October 1, 2021

TU Dortmund (virtual meeting)

Scope & call for papers

Meta-analysis comprises important statistical techniques for integrating the results of related studies about a given topic. These methods should be as robust as possible regarding e.g. small sample sizes or potential model misspecification. The workshop aims to discuss new methodological developments and to facilitate an exchange between scientists from different fields. We especially look forward to submissions from young scientists.
