Title: Design of experiments for Generalised Linear Models

Speaker: Sue Lewis, University of Southampton, UK

Abstract: The talk will begin by describing a motivating example from food technology and briefly overviewing Generalised Linear Models and D-optimality. A method will be presented of obtaining a series of D-optimal designs for a Poisson model with log link. Issue of robustness of designs to uncertainty in the link function, linear predictor and parameter values will be discussed.
