Forum for Causal Inference
There is an increasing interest in causal inference as it is applied now in many fields. A plethora of new methods are coming up and it is a challenge to obtain an overview of the possibilities and starting to apply them to data.
The purpose of this forum is to be an informal meeting place for people who are interested in this area. There will be brief talks based on the participants' own research, or based on published papers that we want to read. There will also be invited speakers.
The forum is organized by Oslo Centre for Biostatistics and Epidemiology (OCBE).
