Workshop on Semiparametric Methodology
January 8-10, 2009


Semiparametric methods continue to be an active research area, especially as computing resources and power grow. These methods are used for inference in models with both parametric and nonparametric components. Work in this setting ranges from semiparametric modeling and efficiency to semiparametric regression.

The organizing committee is soliciting applications from senior graduate students (4th year or higher) and researchers who received their Ph.D. in or after 2004. Applications include a one-page curriculum vitae, a one-page abstract, and two reference letters, including a major professor who is supervising (or has supervised) the applicant's research. Researchers receiving support are expected to present their work at the poster session. Applications should be submitted by December 05, 2008. Women and under-represented groups are encouraged to apply. The funding applications and workshop registration link are found below. E-mails should be sent to
