Statistics Department Seminar

The Statistics Seminars for Summer Quarter will be held online via Zoom at 4:30pm on Tuesdays. Please note that these events will be locked by the Host after ten minutes, so latecomers will not be able to join the Meeting. Subscribe to our distribution list to receive Meeting IDs and passwords via email.

During this period of restrictions on social gatherings within our community, the Statistics Department remains committed to providing a forum for sharing our research and that of our colleagues as regularly as possible. We hope to see everyone together in a live presentation very soon!

You can receive a weekly announcement of seminar offerings by subscribing to our mailing list at any time! Add your information to join "Statistics Seminars" via Mailman and fill in the fields required to subscribe, unsubscribe, change subscription options, and so on.

We provide a LaTeX template for speakers to use when submitting the abstract for a seminar (sample PDF output). Using this template makes it possible to post the abstract promptly and without unintended errors that might creep in if your text has to be migrated from another source.

Zoom sessions are open to registered participants through our email distribution. Questions about this series may be sent to seminars@stat.stanford.edu.
