CALL FOR PAPERS: Statistics and Scientific Method I, 15-16 Dec 2011, SPAIN

http://hypothesistests.wordpress.com/

Madrid-Tilburg Workshop - Statistics and Scientific Method I: The Controversy About Hypothesis Testing Universidad Nacional de Educacin a Distancia (UNED), Madrid

Scientists spend a lot of time testing a hypothesis, and classifying experimental results as (in)
significant evidence. But even after a century of hot debate, there is no consensus on what this 
concept of significance implies, how the results of hypothesis tests should be interpreted, and 
which practical pitfalls have to be avoided. Take the fierce criticisms of significance testing 
in economics, take the endless debate about statistical reform in psychology, take the foundational
disagreement between frequentists and Bayesians about what constitutes statistical evidence. Our 
workshop brings together the perspectives of philosophers and methodologists, statisticians and 
practitioners. Contributions on all aspects of hypothesis testing that relate to the use and 
interpretation of those tests, and their role for scientific inference, are welcome. The workshop 
will be focused on debate, with a discussant for each paper, no parallel sessions and active 
engagement between the participants. We invite submissions of extended abstracts (up to 1000 words)
by 20 September 2011. Decisions will be made by 30 September 2011.
