Young Statisticians Day

The organizing commitee is  pleased to announced  a Young Statisticians' day on Monday November 28th 2016.

By organizing a second edition of the  Young Statisticians Day as part of the The International Conference on Applied Statistics for Development in Africa, the steering committee of the conference wants to emphasis the need and the importance of training young statisticians on the African continent to enhance their participation in the development of the discipline. The committee is convinced that this event  will contribute to the development of a more integrated african statistical community since  it  will bring together young statisticians from several  african countries, both french and english speaking.

The program:
There will be two expository talks by well established statisticians on the role of statistics in different application areas; and  one half-day short course. The tentative topics for the event are: data mining, robust statistics and outliers detection, and analysis of complex survey data. The techniques will be illustrated using hands-on analysis and statistical software packages. The instructors for the workshop will be well-known international participants who are also attending the conference.
