Prof. Dr. Markus Pauly (

Dr. Lubna Amro (


external experts

Dr. Florian Dumpert

Prof. Dr. Sarah Friedrich

Prof. Dr. Frank Konietschke


planned schedule

  1. In the first couple of weeks after Easter: Introduction to the topic (course with integrated R exercises)
  2. Presentation of potential small research projects
  3. Depending on your priority list, distribution into one of these projects
  4. Group work: Preparing a research preprint under supervision
  5. Each group gets an additional external expert
  6. Interim presentation: early/mid June (depending on the expert's availability)
  7. Final workshop presentation and preprint submission: end of September


content of the lecture

  • Introduction and Review of Statistical Inference Concepts and its Applications with R (if necessary)
  • Why Simulations matter?
  • Excursion: How and why to perform a Simulation Study
  • Resampling: Concepts, Theory, and Simulated Performance
  • Why Permutation and Randomization Tests stand out
  • Guidelines for writing Research Papers



We envision around 4 projects which can still be made more precise after the first step. Potential topics may cover

  • Which (M)ANOVA to use for small samples?
  • How to impute missing values for valid inference in mixed effects regression?
  • Resampling for count-data or ordinal regression models
  • Analyzing the effect of outliers in longitudinal data analysis
  • ...
