Nonparametric, robust, and multivariate methods, and their applications

The International Statistics Workshop Salzburg 2016 brings together researchers advancing theory and methodology in multivariate and nonparametric methods, as well as statistics practitioners who use innovative applications of such techniques. In order to stimulate the discussion of new results, ideas, and applications, we are striving for not having parallel sessions, implying that only a limited number of presentations can be accepted. The setting will allow for a lively scientific exchange in the midst of one of the most beautiful cities and regions of Europe, well-known for Monzart and the „Sound of Music“ movie, but also prime destination for all sorts of Alpine sports. Salzburg is a very popular tourist destination all-year-round, therefore it is advisable to register, and book the hotel early.

Combining Conferences
Especially if you are traveling to Salzburg from further away, you might want to combine conferences or other events that are quasi adjacent in time and space. Here are some suggestions (if you are aware of others, please let us know).


Green Meeting
We strive to organize this conference according to the criteria of the Austrian Eco-Label for Green Meetings and Events.
Green Meeting Certification has been awarded on July 11, 2016!
No worries, this does not mean that you have to travel to Salzburg by bicycle. But, for example, you will enjoy fair trade coffee while at the conference, we will try to reduce waste, the catering will include lots of organic products – and we do actually recommend that you use public transport (or, if you like, bicycles) when you are in Salzburg.
