Description  Professor Elvezio RONCHETTI (University of Geneva)
Overview
Classical statistics relies largely on parametric models. Typically, assumptions are made on the structural and the stochastic parts of the model and optimal procedures are derived under these assumptions. Robust statistics deals with deviations from the stochastic assumptions and their dangers for classical estimators and tests and develops statistical procedures which are still reliable and reasonably efficient in the presence of such deviations. It can be viewed as a statistical theory dealing with approximate parametric models by providing a reasonable compromise between the rigidity of a strict parametric approach and thepotential difficulties of interpretation of a fully nonparametric analysis. Many classical procedures are wellknown for not being robust. These procedures are optimal when the assumed model holds exactly, but they are biased and/or inefficient when small deviations from the model are present. The statistical results obtained from standard classical procedures on real data applications can therefore be misleading. These lectures will give a brief introduction to robust statistics by reviewing some basic general concepts and tools and by showing how they can be used in data analysis to provide an alternative complementary analysis with additional useful information. Robust procedures will be discussed for standard models, including linear models, GLM, and multivariate analysis. Some recent developments in more complex models will also be outlined.

Professor Peter DIGGLE (Lancaster University)
Extending ModelBased Geostatistics In this series of three lectures, I will rst cover modelbased geostatistical methods as introduced by Diggle, Moyeed and Tawn (1998) and described at greater length in Diggle and Ribeiro (2007). I will then consider recent work extending the methodology in various ways: allowing for preferential sampling; analysing spatiotemporal data; and the connection between geostatistical and point process methods. Methodological content will be interwoven with applications in the environmental and health sciences, and with demonstrations of one or more R packages.
Lecture 1 In this rst lecture I will give a brief historical introduction to classical geostatistics and explain what is meant by \modelbased" geostatistics (Diggle, Moyeed and Tawn, 1998). I will then introduce the linear Gaussian geostatistical model and use this as a framework for discussing the following topics: exploratory analysis; classical and Bayesian likelihoodbased inference; spatial prediction; design. Lecture 2 In this lecture I will brie y consider three extensions to the linear Gaussian model. I will rst dene generalized linear geostatistical models, and describe an application of univariate and bivariate logistic geostatistical models to largescale disease mapping in Africa.I will then discuss the problem of preferential sampling, which arises when the focus of scientic interest is a latent spatial process fS(x) : x 2 Ag for some planar region A, noisy measurements of S(xi) are available at a nite set of locations xi 2 A, called the sampling design, and the sampling design is stochastically dependent on the process S() Finally, I will consider ways of extending purely spatial geostatistical models to spatiotemporal settings. Lecture 3 In this lecture I will discuss the connection between point processes and geostatistics, and will argue for a redenition of geostatistics to include environmentally driven point processes. In particular, I will suggest that the of logGaussian Cox process (LGCP) is a direct analogue for spatial point process data of the linear Gaussian model for spatial measurement data. I will discuss likleihoodbased methods of inference for LGCP's and describe epidemiological applications of LGCP's in both spatial and spatiotemporal settings.

Quantile regresson extends classical least squares methods for estimating conditional mean functions by oering a variety of methods for estimating conditional quantile functions, thereby enabling the researcher to explore more thoroughly heterogeneous covariate eects. The course will offer a comprehensive introduction to quantile regression methods and brie y survey some recent developments. The primary reference for the course will be my 2005 Econometric Society monograph, but further readings are suggested below in this course outline.
Professor Ruckstuhl Andreas (Workshop)Models consisting of a structural and a stochastic part are often used for analysing data. As these statistical models still contain unknown parameters, inferential procedures must be derived. Based on the assumption that the observed data are realisations of such a statistical model, optimal procedures are derivedHowever, it is generally understood that such models are simplifications of reality and that their validity is at best approximative. In contrast to classicalinferential methods robust methods are less sensitive to deviations from the assumptions in the model. Over the last fifty years robust fitting and inferential methods have been derived for many statistical models. Many of them are implemented now in R. These lectures will introduce to statistical data analysis with robust methods mainly using the R package robustbase.
