The Fourth Workshop on Higher-Order Asymptotics and Post-Selection Inference (WHOA-PSI)^{4}

August 17-19, 2019

The Fourth Workshop on Higher-Order Asymptotics and Post-Selection Inference (WHOA-PSI)^{4} seeks to build upon the success of previous workshops by presenting the latest developments in post-selection inference, and discussing how tools from higher-order asymptotics can both elucidate important properties of post-selection inference procedures, as well as suggest new directions which may ultimately yield more accurate small-sample performance.

The workshop format is intended to encourage collaboration and lively discussion, and to give a voice to all participants with online discussion forums (a result of a successful experiment from the first two workshops).

More specific details will soon be posted on the conference website or contact: Todd Kuffner, email:
