OBJECTIVES OF THE MODELING CONFERENCE

Being held in Knoxville, Tennessee, May 24-29, 1992, this prestigious
statistical modeling conference will bring together 35 distinguished expert
statisticians from Japan, the United States, Canada, England, Australia,
Germany, Spain, France, the Netherlands, and the USSR who are involved in
innovative research in applications of the informational approach to modeling.
Experts will share their experiences with other researchers in academia,
business, engineering, government, industry, health care and medicine, social
and behavioral sciences, and other areas.

THE THEME OF THE CONFERENCE

"The implementation of statistical modeling through an
information-theoretic approach in complex, real-world problems".

CONFERENCE CORE

The scientific core of the conference will consist of three major areas.
Some of the examples of the topics to be covered in each area are as follows.

I. Times Series Analysis (Organizer: T. Ozaki)

* State Space Modeling of Time Series
* Temporal Causality Measures Based on AIC
* An Automated Robust Method for Estimating Trend and Detecting
Changes for Short Time Series
* System Analysis and Seasonal Adjustment through Model Fitting
* Multivariate Autoregressive Modeling for Analysis of Biomedical
Systems and Feedback
* Consistent Akaike-type Order Determination in Nonlinear Time Series
* Basic Methodologies of Window and Autoregressive Spectral Estimation
* Recursive Order Selection for ARMA Process
* Information Criteria and Harmonic Models in Time Series Analysis
* Time Series Model Selection in Small Samples

II. Multivariate Statistical Modeling (Organizer: H. Bozdogan)

* Unsupervised Classification with Stochastic Complexity
* AIC-Replacements for Some Multivariate Tests of Homogeneity
with Applications in Multisample Clustering and Feature Selection
* Modeling Principal Components with Structure
* Information and Entropy in Cluster Analysis
* Mixture-Model Cluster Analysis and Choosing the Number of Clusters
Using a New Informational Complexity, AIC, and MDL Model-Selection
Criteria
* Computational Forms of Fisher Information Matrix in Statistical
and Econometric Research
* Categorical Data Analysis by AIC
* New Structure Criteria in GMDH:Group Method of Data Handling
* Roles of Fisher Type Information in Latent Trait Models
* High Dimensional Covariance Estimation: Avoiding the "Curse of
Dimensionality"
* Some Aspects of Model-Selection Criteria
* Information-based Validity Functionals for Mixture Analysis
* A Bayesian Justification of Maximum Modified Likelihood Method
for Estimating Global Parameters:Computational Statistical Approach

III. Engineering and Scientific Applications (Organizer: M. Ishiguro)

* Inference of Evolutionary Trees from DNA and Protein Sequence Data
* Automated System Identification and Control: Theory and Application
to Wing Flutter
* Longitudinal Data Models with Fixed and Random Effects
* Application of Autoregressive Model to Control Ship's Motions and
Marine Engine
* Point Fields with Stationary Distances and Differences and
Earthquake Prediction
* Dynamic Analysis of Japan's Economic Structure
* Separation of Spin Synchronized Signals Using a Bayesian Approach
* The Use of Kullback-Leibler Distance for Learning in Neural
Binary Classifers
* Statistical Modeling of Earthquake Data: Clusters, Cycles, and
Characteristic Earthquakes
