In genomics, novel single cell technologies allow for the collection of data sets where individual cells are characterized by whether genes are expressed or not, but only the values exceeding a particular threshold can be detected. In social sciences, in survey data, participants might choose to not answer particular questions. In healthcare, only one dosage of a medication can be tried at any particular time, or discomfort associated with particular medications might compel a patient to drop out of a given treatment. While significant theoretical results in dealing with missing data exist, there is a wide variability in the set of tools used within particular disciplines. Domain specific knowledge and jargon make it difficult for experts from different disciplines to effectively communicate and share knowledge regarding challenges and state-of-the-art methodology. Bringing together practitioners and theorists alike, this workshop will provide a platform for discussing progress related to inference and computational challenges emerging across disciplines where missing data is an issue and identifying promising venues where theory provide insight into data analysis.</p> <p> </p> <h2>Speakers who have confirmed participation:</h2> <p>Gurinder Singh Atwal, Nicolas Boumal, Florentina Bunea, Eric Chi, Mark Davenport, Barbara Englehardt, Anna Gilbert, Kosuke Imai, Rafael Irizarry, Julie Josse, Sammi Koyejo, Rod Little, Anru Zhang and Nancy Zhang.</p> <p> </p> <h2>Registration: to come</h2> <p>If you have any problems with registration or other practical questions, please write to Michelle Huguenin (huguenin@ias.edu).</p> <p>Registration for the meals and workshop are required.
