The objective of this landmark conference is to reflect on the diverse history of this area of multivariate analysis, to spotlight the latest research in correspondence analysis and discuss future developments. We aim to bring together theoretical and applied researchers in all the areas where correspondence analysis is currently used: sociology, psychology, ecology, archaeology, economics, genetics, marketing, linguistics, etc.
This world meeting of the correspondence analysis community will focus on all forms of correspondence analysis and related fields, including visualization of categorical data, simple correspondence analysis, multiple correspondence analysis, canonical correspondence analysis, joint correspondence analysis, multiway correspondence analysis, nonsymmetrical correspondence analysis, dual scaling, optimal scaling, homogeneity analysis, nonlinear principal component analysis, multidimensional scaling of categorical data, biplots of categorical data, compositional data analysis, internal and external stability, and geometric data analysis.
