Zamar> > EXTENDED DEADLINE: 31st of January 2009> > We are inviting submissions for a special issue of Computational> Statistics and Data Analysis focusing on Model Selection and Robust> Procedures.> > In empirical research we are nowadays often confronted with a wealth> of variables. This leads to more complex data structures which poses> some challenges. Specifically, a range of different models can be> considered and an optimal model needs to be selected from a set of> candidate models. Furthermore, when more variables are recorded, it> becomes more likely that not all of these variables are measured with> high accuracy. This may result in uneven quality data containing gross> errors and other anomalies that need to be taken into account.> > This special issue will focus mainly on the following two challenges:> (a) model selection strategies, methodology and applications, and (b)> Computationally efficient, robust procedures to analyze complex data> sets. Submissions on the cross section of model selection and> robustness will be especially appealing.> > The extended deadline for submissions is 31st January, 2009.> Notification of decisions will be given by the end of May, 2009. All> submissions must contain original unpublished work not being> considered for publication elsewhere. Submissions will be refereed> according to standard procedures for Computational Science and Data> Analysis.
