Shape-Constrained Methods: Inference, Applications, and Practice (18w5112)

January 28, 2018 - February 2, 2018

This workshop will be structured around four main areas: (i) recent developments in shape-constrained estimation; (ii) application in econometrics, operations research machine learning and other fields; (iii) advances in optimization and computation, and (iv) future directions. A final day will be reserved for round-table discussions of important future problems in the field. The intention is to discuss statistical and methodological issues as a means to bring out commonalities in problems across these diverse disciplines and facilitate further cross-disciplinary collaboration. In particular, we will include talks from several substantive disciplines each day. We will also begin the meeting with a short introductory session allowing each participant a few minutes to describe their own research interests as a means of facilitating informal discussion and collaboration.
