In this paper, we apply empirical likelihood method to infer for the regression parameters in the partial functional linear regression models based on B-spline. We prove that the empirical log-likelihood ratio for the regression parameters converges in law to a weighted sum of independent chi-square distributions. Our simulation shows that the proposed empirical likelihood method produces more accurate confidence regions in terms of coverage probability than the asymptotic normality method.
