Ansgar Steland received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Goettingen, Germany. After positions at the Technische Universitat Berlin as a consultant, at the European University Viadrina and the Ruhr-University of Bochum, he joined the faculty of RWTH Aachen University, Germany, where he was appointed Full Professor at the Institute of Statistics in 2006. He is an Elected Member of the International Statistical Institute (ISI); Chair of the Society for Reliability, Quality and Safety; and Chair of the German Statistical Society's Statistics in Natural Sciences and Technology Section. His main research interests are in change detection and quality control, high-dimensional statistics, time series analysis, nonparametric statistics, and image analysis and its applications to econometrics, the natural sciences and engineering, especially photovoltaics. Ewaryst Rafajlowicz received his Ph.D. and D.Sc. degrees in Control Theory from Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland. In 1996 he became a Full Professor, and in 2016 he was elected to the Polish Academy of Sciences as a Corresponding Member. He has been a Visiting Professor at many universities in the USA, Canada, Germany and England and has published ca. 150 papers on the identification of distributed-parameter systems, optimal design of experiments, signal processing, neural networks, nonparametric regression estimation, statistical quality control and image processing. In addition, he has served on the program committees of several international conferences and as a reviewer for many journals. Ostap Okhrin is a Professor of Econometrics and Statistics at the Technische Universitat Dresden, Germany. He worked at the European University Viadrina and later was an Assistant and then Associate Professor for Statistics of Financial Markets at the Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin and one of the principal investigators of the CRC-649 (Collaborative Research Center) "Economic Risk." He currently teaches multivariate, computational and mathematical statistics, and his research focuses on multivariate models, in particular in copulas and financial econometrics.
