The First Asian ISI Satellite Meeting on Small Area Estimation (SAE): Bangkok, September 1-4, 2013

The first satellite meeting on Small Area Estimation (SAE) at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, on September 1-4, 2013, immediately after the ISI World Statistics Congress in Hong Kong in August 25-30, 2013.

The main purpose of the proposed meeting will be to assess the current state of development and usage of small area methodology.  We hope that this meeting will serve as a bridge between mathematical statisticians and practitioners working on small area estimation in academia, private and government agencies.  Although there have been a number of conferences on small area estimation in the recent past, they have been in Europe and North America, and have had a focus on practitioners in the developed world.  This meeting in Bangkok will give researchers in developing south Asian countries an opportunity to learn about state-of-the-art small area estimation techniques from the experts in the field.
