Meeting of the Working Group "Structural Equation Modeling" on February 28 and March 01, 2019 at the University of Tübingen
Dear members of the Working Group Structural Equation Modeling,
the next meeting of the Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) Working Group will take place on the February 28 and March 01, 2019 at the University of Tübingen (Festsaal Alte Aula, Münzgasse 40, 72070 Tübingen).
The SEM working group was founded in 1986. Meetings or small conferences have been held across Europe (e.g., Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, and Switzerland). The group has an informal character; there is no affiliation to any research organization. The main goal of the meetings is to exchange and discuss methodological problems and possible solutions in SEM and related fields. Presentations about ongoing research and doctoral theses are explicitly welcomed.
The meeting will last two days. Talks will be about 30 minutes including 10 to 15 minutes for discussion.
Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required. For registration send an e-mail to email@example.com
We are looking forward to meeting you in Tübingen.
Augustin Kelava and Stefano Noventa
Methods Center, University of Tübingen
