Workshop
on Confidence Limits
2728 March, 2000
Fermilab
1West Conference Room

Information
for Speakers
It is assumed that all
participants at this workshop have some practical experience in
statistical data analysis, that they have been
(or intend to be) involved in
setting confidence limits, and that they are aware of the fact
that there are situations where elementary statistical procedures
give misleading results. The workshop is devoted mainly to the
consideration of the problems which arise precisely in these
difficult cases.
Speakers should
assume that participants have only read some of the
suggested reading, and they should
take account of the fact that some of these papers are rather
complicated, and not all participants will be as familiar with
the arguments as the speakers are.
Since there will
be no proceedings for this meeting, it would be extremely
useful for speakers to send electronic copies of their
presentations to cheung@fnal.gov for inclusion into this WEB
site. A single PostScript file or PDF file
are the preferred formats,
however contributions in any reasonable electronic
format will be gratefully accepted.
