Description: In many longitudinal studies, the response process is often  correlated with observation times. Also, there mayexista dependent terminal event such as death that stops the follow-up.  In this talk,wediscusssome joint models for analysis of longitudinal data with  informative observation times and a dependent terminal event. Estimating  equation approaches are developed for parameter estimation, and asymptotic  properties of the proposed estimators are derived. The finite sample properties  of the proposed estimators are examinedthrough simulation studies. Some applications are  provided.
