The EPINOR Sum­mer School 2015

The EPINOR Summer School 2015 was at Jægtvolden Fjordhotel on Inderøya. The main theme was "Missing data and Measurement Error".

Main course lecturer:Jonathan Bartlett
Jonathan is a Lecturer at the Department of Medical Statistics at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. His PhD investigated the use of missing data methods such as imputation for handling measurement error in regression models. His current research interests are focused on the development of methods for handling missing data, taking account of the various complexities that arise in the analysis of real data. He maintains the website missingdata.org.uk and writes a blog at thestatsgeek.com.

Take a look at the final programme (PDF) We will amongst others be visiting HUNT Research Centre, for a lecture and a guided tour in the HUNT Biobank. As part of the social programme we will visit the restaurant Øyna.
