SiDOR (Statistical Inference, Decision and Operations Research) group was created in 1998 by a group of young mathematicians of the University of Vigo, especialized in statistical models and methods and operations research. Presently, more than 30 people belong to SiDOR, including permanent researchers, posdocs, Ph.D. students, and technical staff. Sidor members participate as teachers in the Interuniversity Masters in Statistical Techniques and the Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Statistics and Operations Research, where they have directed many doctoral theses.
SiDOR main lines of research are, on the one hand, nonparametric and semiparametric statistical inference in complex problems (like high-dimensional data, censored data) and, on the other, game theory, decision theory and operations research, in general. Researchers in the group lead and participate in research projects and networks funded by competitive programs of the autonomic Government of Galicia, the Spanish Ministry of Economy (for more than a decade) and the European Commission. These projects include both basic research and applications to emerging problems from different fields , such as economics , engineering, or biomedical sciences. In fact, many members of SiDOR group participe actively in the newly created Center for Biomedical Research at the University of Vigo (CINBIO - http://www.cinbio.es/) and the Technological Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITMATI - http://www.itmati.com/ ). Also, SiDOR is currently a member of the Spanish Network Mathematics-Industry (http://www.math-in.net/).
The Sidor group has strong international collaborations with leading researchers in the area , which has often resulted in exchanges of research, co-authorship of scientific articles , and application of joint projects. In this sense, highlight the MEDIASRES networks (international doctorate in biostatistics) and Asymptotic Theory for Multidimensional Statistics (mathematical statistics) , respectively funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the EU and the Flanders Research Foundation, which the group participates.
Sidor is being honored as competitive group of reference by the Government of Galicia since 2008
