In June 2017 the 17th Applied Stochastic Models and Data Analysis (ASMDA) International Conference was held, together with the 6th Demographic Workshop, in London, UK, at de Morgan house of the London Mathematical Society. The main goal of the conference was to promote new methods and techniques in analysing data in fields like stochastic modeling, optimisation techniques, statistical methods and inference, data mining and knowledge systems, demography and life table data analysis. ASMDA Conference and Demographics Workshop aimed at bringing together people from both stochastic, data analysis and demography areas. Special attention is given to applications or to new theoretical results having potential of solving real life problems.
Maria Symeonaki, contributor to the conference and chair of the Invited Session ‘Labour Market Transitions’ that she has organised presented two papers co-authored with Glykeria Stamatopoulou and Maria Karamessini. Contributors Dimitris Parsanoglou and Aggeliki Yfanti presented their study on the employers’ assessments on hiring and the results from a vignette experiment. The presentations are the following:
- Symeonaki, G. Stamatopoulou and M. Karamessini, On the measurement of early job insecurity. (paper)
- Symeonaki, G. Stamatopoulou and M. Karamessini, Labour market flows in Europe: Evidence from the EU-LFS.
- Parsanoglou and A. Yfanti, Employers’ assessments on hiring: results from a vignette experiment.
