Microsimulation Workshop

Women in Statistics

Under the direction of Petra Stein (University of Duisburg-Essen), the MikroSim research group is organizing a microsimulation workshop by female researchers for female researchers. The aim of this workshop is to demonstrate the potential and the diverse possibilities of computational microsimulation modeling through practical exercises.

The workshop will take place as a part of the Statistical Week on the 9th of September 2019 at Trier University. It especially addresses PhD and Master’s students and will be held in English. Participation is free of charge.

Further information about the workshop can be found here.
