    Queensland Branch meeting (non-members welcome as always)

    The unprecedented use of digital platforms and technologies, coupled with the emergence and growth of ‘big social data’ on digital media consumption and communication, have enabled ground-breaking research approaches that support the unobtrusive observation of large-scale, population-wide activity patterns in society.

    Researchers from diverse disciplines are increasingly considering data from digital platforms such as Twitter to enhance and innovate in their research. To support these researchers, QUT has created the Digital Observatory, a state-of-the-art infrastructure for tracking, collecting and analysing digital media data.   

    We would like to invite interested researchers to attend our Digital Observatory Workshop, where we will demonstrate our capabilities and show how we can support you in your research endeavours. We look forward to meeting you.

    Detecting botnet activity using machine learning

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of interconnected everyday objects (“things”) that have been augmented with a small measure of computing capabilities. Lately, the IoT has been affected by a variety of different botnet activities. As botnets have been the cause of serious security risks and financial damage over the years, existing network forensic techniques cannot identify and track current sophisticated methods of botnets. This is because commercial tools mainly depend on signature-based approaches that cannot discover new forms of botnet.  In literature, several studies have been conducted with the use of Machine Learning (ML) techniques in order to train and validate a model for defining such attacks, but they still produce high false alarm rates with the challenge of investigating the tracks of botnets.  In this talk, I will present our work investigating the use of ML techniques for developing a network forensic mechanism based on network flow identifiers that can track suspicious activities of botnets. Our experimental results using the UNSW-NB15 dataset revealed that ML techniques with flow identifiers can effectively and efficiently detect botnets’ attacks and their tracks.  This is joint work with: N Koroniotis, N Moustafa, E Sitnikova.

    Applied statistics and data science play a vital role in the analysis and evaluation of policies in various fields including social sciences, economics, health sciences, population studies etc. On the other hand, with society apparently expecting more and more from all three levels of government; it becomes increasingly important that both private and public policy should be based on reliable and up-to-date data that covers the important issues. This conference aims to promote research collaborations and exchange ideas between data scientists, applied statisticians and data modellers who will detail the latest innovations in research to gather and disseminate information from small to big data settings, and from policy analysts who will describe how they use existing information from increasing big data environments and indicate areas in which there need to be methodological and technological developments. Another aim is to establish connections between researchers at tertiary institutions and working in industry in Australia and overseas. This conference is organised by the Data Science Research Unit (DSRU) within the School of Computing and Mathematics at Charles Sturt University (CSU).

    This conference is sponsored by the Australian Government’s Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities and the School of Computing and Mathematics and the Faculty of Business, Justice and Behavioural Sciences at CSU.

    A notion of depth for curve data

    Following the seminal idea of John W. Tukey, statistical data depth is a function that determines centrality of an arbitrary point w.r.t. a data cloud or a probability measure. During the last decades, data depth rapidly developed to a powerful machinery proving to be useful in various fields of science. Recently, implementing the idea of depth in the functional setting attracted a lot of attention among theoreticians and applicants. We suggest a halfspace-based notion of data depth suitable for data represented as curves, or trajectories, which inherits both Euclidean-geometry and functional properties but overcomes certain limitations of the previous approaches. It can be shown that the Tukey curve depth satisfies the requirements posed on the general depth function, which are meaningful for trajectories. Application of the Tukey curve depth is illustrated on brain imaging.

    • Theatre 1, Level B1, 207-221 Bouverie St, Carlton VIC 3053

    Join us for three short talks by current PhD students Jiadong Mao, Rushani Wijesuriya and Ravindi Nanayakkara.

    6:00pm – Talks – Theatre 1, Basement of 207-221 Bouverie St, University of Melbourne

    7:15pm – Drinks – Prince Alfred Rooftop & Bar, Carlton
    (SSA Vic members receive a free drink!)

    Talk 1: Jiadong Mao – Nonparametric estimation for streaming data

    In the era of big data, huge volumes of data are continuously collected in time-varying environment (termed streaming data). A model for streaming data should be fast to compute and adaptive to the changing nature of the data. These two objectives are hard to achieve simultaneously. Conventional statistical methods often assume that all data have already been collected and stored in the computer memory. Existing models for streaming data, are mostly proposed by computer scientists and only address the computational challenge. Without knowing their theoretical properties, it is hard to predict when these methods will succeed.
    We develop computationally efficient models with theoretical guarantee, with more flexible nonparametric models, and investigate their theoretical properties using infill asymptotics. Computational properties of the models are shown using computer simulations and then applied to some real data examples to show their power for modelling real-world problems.

    Talk 2: Rushani Wijesuriya – Multiple imputation in three-level data structures

    Multilevel data with three levels of hierarchy are common in health research studies. A common problem in such studies is the presence of missing data and often handled with multiple Imputation (MI). To our knowledge there are only two MI implementations that are specialized for imputing missing data in a three-level setting (one within R and the other in the stand-alone software Blimp) and a lack of sufficient guidance for practitioners regarding the settings for which each of these approaches is appropriate. We investigate the performance of alternative MI approaches for handling three-level incomplete data by means of a simulation study under a number of different scenarios. Based on a case study from the Childhood to Adolescence Transition Study (CATS), we compared a range of currently available multilevel MI methods designed for single-level and two-level data combined with ad hoc approaches, such as the use of dummy indicators (DI) for school clusters or a just another variable (JAV) approach to repeated measures, in terms of bias and precision.

    Talk 3: Ravindi Nanayakkara – Stochastic modelling and statistical analysis of cosmic microwave background data

    The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) is the radiation from the universe since 380,000 years from its birth. In 2009, the European Space Agency launched the mission Planck to study the CMB thoroughly. The aim of the mission was to verify the standard model of cosmology using a detailed resolution of observations and to find out fluctuations from the specified standard model of cosmology. The main statistical model used to describe the CMB data is isotropic Gaussian fields. A random field can be defined as a stochastic process; indexed by a spatial variable. The Rényi function plays a central role in multifractal analysis, since the multifractal formalism in the theory of random cascades can be understood in the sense of the Legendre transform of the Rényi function. For the Rényi function on the sphere, there are three models where the Rényi function is known explicitly. They are Log-Normal model, Log-Gamma model and Log-Negative-Inverted-Gamma model. Our research aims to check the Gaussianity of the CMB Radiation data collected from the Planck mission. We discuss the statistical properties of random fields on spheres using high frequency asymptotics for angular spectrum.

    SSA and the Australian Bureau of Statistics are pleased to present the following pre-conference workshop in the lead-up to this year's Young Statisticians Conference, YSC2019:

    Maximising the use of Australian Bureau of Statistics Data Products and Analysis Tools
    in Canberra (Manuka Oval, Griffith) on 30 September 2019.

    About the workshop
    This one-day workshop will have two components. First, it will provide an overview of the wide variety of data sources from the Australian Bureau of Statistics that are available for analysts. These sources include our 5-yearly Census, survey data, administrative data, and in particular, linked data. A demonstration of the ABS Table Builder and Data Lab products - platforms for analysts to remotely undertake bespoke analyses using ABS data - will be given. Several case studies will provide examples of the many innovative ways analysts are making use of ABS data for their projects. Second, it will focus on how Table Builder can produce data-cubes for a standard analysis in R. This will then extend to creating large data- cubes suitable for mixed models using the ‘LME4’ package in R. This second component of the workshop will conclude with discussion of Poisson-gamma models, which have additional advantages in this type of data framework.

    The aim of this workshop, presented by Dr Murthy Mittinty of the University of Adelaide's School of Public Health, is to provide an outline of recent developments in mediation analysis, that is, the analyses used to assess the relative magnitude of different pathways and mechanisms through which an exposure may affect an outcome.

    This workshop will provide:

    (i) Conceptual understanding and interpretability of the results;

    It will cover traditional approaches to mediation such as product and difference methods and introduce the latest developments such as counterfactual approach. Importance will be given to the confounding assumptions required for a causal interpretation of direct and indirect effect estimates. Methods from the causal inference literature to conduct mediation in the presence of exposure mediator interactions, binary outcomes, binary mediators, and case-control study designs will be demonstrated.  Sensitivity analysis techniques for unmeasured confounding and measurement error will be introduced. Discussion will focus on extending single mediation analysis to multiple mediators.

    (ii) Using epidemiological data practical applications of the above methods will be demonstrated. Analysis will be demonstrated using commonly used software such as STATA.

    (iii) Emphasis will also be given on report and communication of the estimates from the above methods.

    Workshop prerequisites are experience in regression analysis and epidemiology.

    About the presenter
    Dr Murthy Mittinty is a senior research fellow in the University of Adelaide’s School of Public Health. His research interests are in application of statistical methods to problems concerning public health, design and analysis of observational data, imputation of missing data and causal inference.

    This workshop is presented by Professor Bryan Manly (Formerly of University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand).
    In this workshop, we focus on three related areas in computational statistics: randomization, bootstrapping, and Monte Carlo methods of inference, illustrating the value of a number of these methods with an emphasis on biological applications. The presenter emphasizes the sampling approach within randomization testing and confidence intervals. Similar to randomization, we show how bootstrapping, or resampling, can be used for confidence intervals and tests of significance. It also explores how to use Monte Carlo methods to test hypotheses and construct confidence intervals. Participants should have already studied basic statistical methods.

    SSA and ACEMS are proud to present the following 1-day workshop with Liz Stuart to be held on 21 October 2019 in Sydney:

    Propensity score methods for estimating causal effects in non-experimental studies: The why, what, and how

    About this workshop

    Propensity scores are an increasingly common tool for estimating the effects of interventions in observational (“non-experimental”) settings and for answering complex questions in randomized controlled trials. They can be of great use in epidemiologic research, for example helping assess broad population effects of exposures, programs, or policies. This workshop will discuss the importance of the careful design of observational studies, and the role of propensity scores in that design, with the main goal of providing practical guidance on the use of propensity scores to estimate causal effects. The workshop will cover the primary ways of using propensity scores to adjust for confounders when estimating the effect of a particular “cause” or “intervention”, including weighting, subclassification, and matching. Topics covered will include how to specify and estimate the propensity score model, selecting covariates to include in the model, diagnostics, and common challenges and solutions. Software for implementing analyses using propensity scores will also be discussed. The workshop will also highlight recent advances in the propensity score literature, including prognostic scores, covariate balancing propensity scores, methods for non-binary treatments, and approaches to be used when there are large numbers of covariates available (as in claims data).

    About the presenter

    Elizabeth A. Stuart, Ph.D. is Professor in the Department of Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, with joint appointments in the Department of Biostatistics and the Department of Health Policy and Management, and Associate Dean for Education at JHSPH. She received her Ph.D. in statistics in 2004 from Harvard University and is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association. Dr. Stuart has extensive experience in methods for estimating causal effects and dealing with the complications of missing data in experimental and non-experimental studies, particularly as applied to mental health, public policy, and education. She has published influential papers on propensity score methods and generalizing treatment effect estimates to target populations and has taught courses and short courses on causal inference and propensity scores to a wide range of audiences. Her primary areas of application include mental health, substance use, and policy evaluation, including co-directing the JHSPH Center for Mental Health and Addiction Policy Research. Dr. Stuart has received research funding for her work from the National Institutes of Health, the US Institute of Education Sciences, and the National Science Foundation and has served on advisory panels for the National Academy of Sciences, the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), and the US Department of Education. Dr. Stuart was recently recognized with the mid-career award from the Health Policy Statistics Section of the American Statistical Association, the Gertrude Cox Award for applied statistics, and the Myrto Lefkopoulou award from the Harvard University Department of Biostatistics.

    Target Audience

    This workshop is suitable for a varied audience, ranging from people with no experience with propensity scores to those with some experience who want to learn more, especially about various data complexities. General knowledge of regression and logistic regression is useful.

    The Australian Pharmaceutical Biostatistics Group (APBG) and the Statistical Society of Australia warmly invite you to a workshop on "Network meta-analysis and population adjustment for decision-making", presented by David Phillippo.

    About the workshop:
    Network meta-analysis (NMA) is a method for combining evidence from several studies on multiple treatments of interest to provide a consistent set of relative effect estimates and is widely used for healthcare decision-making and guideline development. More recently, population adjustment methods have been proposed that use individual patient data from one or more studies to relax the assumptions of NMA and adjust for differences in effect modifying variables between populations, or even to incorporate disconnected networks and single-arm studies. The methods are becoming increasingly common in technology appraisal submissions to reimbursement agencies and raise new questions and challenges for analysts and decision-makers.

    About the presenter:
    David Phillippo is a Senior Research Associate in Statistics at the University of Bristol, UK. His research focuses on methodology for evidence synthesis, Bayesian Network Meta-Analysis (NMA), population adjustment methods for indirect comparisons, and accounting for bias in clinical guidelines. He is the lead author of a recent Technical Support Document published by the NICE Decision Support Unit on population-adjusted indirect comparisons, and has developed new methods extending the NMA framework to incorporate population adjustment combining individual patient data and published summary data.

    Target audience:
    Day 1 of this course is aimed at statisticians, health economists, decision-makers, and systematic reviewers who are already familiar with pairwise meta-analysis, and who want to extend their knowledge to NMA and population adjustment methods. Participants will develop an understanding of these methods and the required assumptions and learn to assess and critique these types of analyses.

    Day 2 is aimed at those with technical experience of meta-analysis who want to apply the knowledge learned on Day 1 to hands-on practical examples. Participants will gain experience implementing NMA and population-adjusted analyses in an R package based on the Bayesian modelling language Stan.

    Prerequisites: Day 1:
    -
    Participants should be familiar with meta-analysis and linear and logistic regression

    Day 2:
    - Participants should have attended Day 1 of the course
    - Participants should have a working knowledge of R (installing packages, running a simple regression model)

    Learning Objectives Day 1 - Develop an understanding of network meta-analysis and population adjustment methods and the required assumptions and learn to assess and critique these types of analyses.
    Day 2 - Gain experience implementing NMA and population-adjusted analyses in an R package based on the Bayesian modelling language Stan.

    Welcome to the ANZSC 2020 Conference

    The organising committee warmly invites you to the 2020 Australian and New Zealand Statistical Conference, which will take place on the Gold Coast from the 6th to the 10th of July 2020.

    This conference brings together four leading statistical communities in the region – the Statistical Society of Australia, the New Zealand Statistical Association, the International Institute of Business Analysis (Special Interest Group for Business Analytics), and the Australian Conference on Teaching Statistics.

    The aim of this conference is to bring together a broad range of researchers and practitioners across a variety of statistical disciplines to facilitate the exchange of theory, methods and applications.

    With these four societies working together there will be strong program components of interest to a wide diversity of academic, government, and industry colleagues. This includes the full spectrum of delegates from those advancing theoretical methodology to those working on industry applications (in traditional and non-traditional statistical areas). Of particular interest is how Big Data continues to impact all of us.

    Information on Keynote Speakers and the Conference program will be available shortly so watch this space for updates.

    The conference will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) situated in the heart of the Gold Coast. From GCCEC, Surfers Paradise (the social hub of the Gold Coast) is 5km to the North, the Star Casino and Pacific Fair are immediately to the South (the largest regional shopping and dining destination in Queensland), the beach (Broadbeach) is just ten minutes walk, and the Broadbeach restaurant complex is immediately to the East (short 5 minutes walk). Social tours can easily be made to the rainforest (such as Tambourine National Park and World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park), to places of Aboriginal Indigenous significance, to Stradbroke Island, and to Australia’s greatest theme parks.

    ANZSC2020 promises to be a truly amazing experience on both a professional and a social level.

    Please check out the official conference website and register your interest here.

    We look forward to seeing you on the Gold Coast in 2020!
