PHYSTAT 05 - General Information

General Information

The aim of the Conference is to discuss advanced statistical analysis techniques as used in measurements and searches in Particle Physics,  Astrophysics and Cosmology. Topics of relevance are:
  • Combination of analyses and results
  • Simulation issues and Monte Carlo theory
  • Treatment of systematics in theory and practice
  • Signal significance
  • Setting limits
  • Multivariate event classification
  • Convolution and deconvolution
  • Optimal measurements
  • Techniques for 'blind' analyses
  • Time series and point processes

There will be invited talks, and also submitted contributions. We do not intend to include the reporting of current experimental results or standard statistical analyses.

We are most grateful to the following organisations which are providing funding for the Conference:

  • Institute of Physics
  • Royal Statistical Society
  • Department of Statistics, Oxford
  • Astor Fund, Oxford
