Theme: The ISS-2015 is planned to discuss the methodological advances and challenges in the analysis of continuous and discrete correlated data both in parametric and semi-parametric setup. The main topics of interest of this symposium are:
  1. Multi-dimensional data analysis in continuous setup
  2. Multivariate analysis for longitudinal categorical data
  3. Time series with financial and environmental applications
  4. Spatial-temporal data analysis
  5. Familial longitudinal data analysis in semi-parametric setup.
It is also of interest to discuss further challenges in analysis when data may contain measurement errors, missing values, and/or outliers, for example.

The scientific program will include keynote, special invited, invited, and contributed paper sessions.

Symposium Venu: The meeting will take place in the Bruneau Centre [formerly Inco Innovation Center (IIC)], located in the centre of the campus of Memorial University, St. John's, Canada
