East Georgia State College associate professor of mathematics Mina Vora recently joined participants from all over the world in a workshop held at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh, Scotland. The workshop, which involved 21 talks throughout the week and a panel discussion, was on nonparametric statistical inference under shape constraints.
“The nonparametric statistical inference is a core area of statistical theory and methodology, but the methods often involve challenging optimization problems and have important applications in many areas, including biology and econometrics,” explained Vora. “This conference enables professional exchanges of the latest knowledge and innovation in statistics and to further promote global statistical development.”
Vora went on to say that the conference was very well-planned and organized, and she had the opportunity to network with many global researchers and educators.
“I have acquired a memorable lifetime experience and valuable knowledge,” she said. “I was very fortunate to get invited.”
