Joint Statistical Meeting
Saturday, July 28, 2018 - Thursday, August 2, 2018
JSM (the Joint Statistical Meetings) is the largest gathering of statisticians and data scientists held in North America. It is held jointly with the American Statistical Association, International Biometric Society (ENAR and WNAR), Institute of Mathematical Statistics, Statistical Society of Canada, International Chinese Statistical Association and many more. It is also one of the broadest, with topics ranging from statistical applications to methodology and theory to the expanding boundaries of statistics, such as analytics and data science. JSM also offers a unique opportunity for statisticians in academia, industry, and government to exchange ideas and explore opportunities for collaboration. Beginning statisticians (including current students) are able to learn from and interact with senior members of the profession. Opportunities to participate in the Joint Statistical Meetings abound, whether you are giving a presentation, organizing or chairing a session, instructing a course, or leading a discussion. The JSM program consists of invited, topic-contributed, and contributed sessions, introductory overview lecture, late-breaking sessions, poster presentations, roundtable discussions and professional development courses and workshops.
