IRSA Annual Conference - 2019

The annual conference of the Institute for Research In Statistics and its Applications (IRSA) will be held on May 2-3, 2019 at the University of Minnesota. This year, the theme is “Causal Inference and Data Science”.

Causal inference is a broad topic where one aims to combine external knowledge and study design to draw a causal connection between objects. It has gained popularity in fields including statistics, biostatistics, computer science, economics, epidemiology, philosophy, and various social sciences. This workshop will foster interdisciplinary research on causal inference with recent developments in statistics.
