View the Workshop Online
The Future of the Statistical Sciences Workshop begins Monday in London and will run through Tuesday.
If you are not in London for this International Year of Statistics capstone event, you can still view the workshop’s presentations and discussions live via an online feed provided by Wiley Publishers. Click the link above to access the online broadcast.
If it is not convenient for you to view the workshop live, a recording will be available on the workshop pages at www.statistics2013.org soon after the event concludes.
In addition, during the workshop you can tweet questions or comments to #FSSW2013. A member of the Workshop Organizing Committee will monitor this Twitter hashtag and convey your questions to workshop participants.
The two-day Future of the Statistical Sciences Workshop will bring together statisticians from around the globe who represent the amazing diversity of statistical practice.
The workshop will evaluate the current and near-term future state of the statistical sciences with an eye toward providing information to research funders and other decision-makers about the breadth, depth and vibrancy of the statistical sciences. The takeaway from the workshop will be an electronic document that will be made widely and freely available, especially to funding agencies worldwide.
If you have thoughts from your perspective on the current and future state of our profession, you can email those to Ron Wasserstein at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please limit your comments to one page. We will follow up if we have questions on details. Your comments can help shape the final document, so please send these as soon as possible.
We look forward to your participation in this major International Year of Statistics event.
Have Your Voice Heard!
There are ways you can contribute directly to the Workshop and the future of the statistical sciences.
One of the major outcomes of the Workshop will be a paper–written by a professional science writer–that will be targeted to funding agencies. These agencies must understand the statistical sciences and have a sense of where it is heading. To help us prepare this paper, and to help set the tone for the workshop, we invite you to submit a brief statement describing your perspective on the current and near-term future state of the statistical sciences with which you are most familiar. We will compile all of the perspectives we receive to develop a global view.
We want to hear your voice! Please send your statement to the Workshop Organizing Committee through Ron Wasserstein, executive director of the American Statistical Association, at email@example.com.
