SiDOR (Statistical Inference, Decision & Operations Research) group was created in 1998 by a group of young mathematicians of the University of Vigo, specialized in statistical models and methods and operations research. Along the years, the group has grown (multiplying its size by three) and its lines of activity have been expanded. Presently, more than 20 people belong to SiDOR, including permanent researchers, posdocs, Ph.D. students, and technical staff. The venue of the group is the Faculty of Economics and Businness, at Lagoas-Marcosende University campus in Vigo (Galicia, NW of Spain), but the group’s members have also teaching and research activity at other buildings in Vigo, Ourense and Pontevedra cities.
SiDOR main lines of research are nonparametric and semiparametric statistical inference in complex problems (like high-dimensional data, censored data, or missing data) and 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 Science, and the European Commission. These projects and networks include applications in biomedicine, engineering, economics, or environmental sciences, as well as software development. SiDOR is recognized and granted as Leading Research Unit by the Xunta de Galicia since 2008.
Many members of SiDOR belong to the Department of Statistics and OR and teach at the Interuniversity Master Program on Statistics. They also participate in the Interuniversity Doctorate Program on Statistics and OR.
SiDOR is currently a member of the Spanish Network Mathematics-Industry (http://www.math-in.net/). It also participates in the INBIOMED Network for Biomedical research and CINBIO.
