New Advances in Statistical Modeling and Applications
This volume of the Selected Papers is a product of the XIX Congress of the Portuguese Statistical Society, held at the Portuguese town of Nazaré, from September 28 to October 1, 2011. All contributions were selected after a thorough peer-review process. It covers a broad scope of papers in the areas of Statistical Science, Probability and Stochastic Processes, Extremes and Statistical Applications. António Pacheco is Professor of Probability and Statistics, President of CEMAT (Center for Mathematics and its Applications), and Head of the Department of Mathematics at Instituto Superior Técnico - University of Lisbon. He graduated in Probability and Statistics in 1987 from the University of Lisbon, obtained a M.Sc. Degree in Applied Mathematics from the Technical University of Lisbon in 1991 and received a Ph.D. in Operations Research from Cornell University in 1994. His main research interests include applied stochastic processes, queueing networks, statistical process control, and stochastic models in telecommunications.
