1st Workshop on quantile regression in Rome


About the Workshop

Over the years, quantile regression models have been implemented in a wide range of scientific settings to handle empirical characteristics encountered in real-world data.

The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers together to disseminate and discuss new methodological and new real data applied contributions in quantile and generalized quantile regression methods. This meeting also aims at promoting project collaborations among academics and practitioners, and fostering the development of new research networks in this area.

The Workshop will be held in the Faculty of Economics, Aula Pietro Onida, 3rd floor.
