The International Conference on Trends and Perspectives in Linear Statistical Inference (LinStat'2010) will be held from 27 till 31 July, 2010, in Tomar, Portugal, at the Polytechnic Institute of Tomar. This is the follow-up of the 2008 edition held in Będlewo near Poznań (Poland).

The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers sharing an interest in a variety of aspects of statistics and its applications and offer them a possibility to discuss current developments in these subjects. The conference will mainly focus on a number of topics. The topics that have been selected so far include estimation, prediction and testing in linear models, robustness of relevant statistical methods, estimation of variance components appearing in linear models, generalizations to nonlinear models, design and analysis of experiments, including optimality and comparison of linear experiments.

The work of young scientists is highly appreciated. The Scientific Committee will award the best presentation and best poster. The awarded will be Invited Speakers at the next edition of LinStat.
