Abstract: Interval-censored failure time data occur in many fields such as demography, economics, medical research and reliability, and many inference procedures on them have been developed (Chen et al., 2012; Sun, 2006). In this talk, we will first briefly review the development of and literature on the field and then discuss some recent advances or developments. In particular, we will discuss regression analysis of interval-censored data with informative censoring or when there exist several correlated failure times.
