About the Workshop
Anchor University Lagos, in collaboration with the International Society for Business and Industrial Statistics (ISBIS) is organizing a workshop on BASIC AND ADVANCED TIME SERIES ANALYSIS: THEORY, PRACTICE AND PROGRAMMING in September 2018. The main aim of this workshop is to train participants to reach a higher level of scientific activity, both in terms of their teaching, research and publications. It also aims at bringing together academics and people working in business and industry to strengthen the links between these communities in Nigeria and abroad. This workshop will be partially supported by ISBIS/ISI, and World Bank.
Justification of the Workshop
This workshop on the latest developments in time series analysis will improve the capacity building of African postgraduate students, research fellows and junior academic staff members. It will help them to elevate their research to a level that enables quality publication in international, peer-reviewed journals, and teach the recent developments in time series to the next generation of researchers in Africa, thereby enhancing their overall capacity. It will also cater for the need of professionals in Business and Industry who may have graduate degrees in statistics or related disciplines but need advanced knowledge to be productive in a competitive global workplace. This is a step towards building the capacity of researchers in line with the goals of the International Statistical Institute.
