Industrial Affiliates Annual Conference

This highlight event will be attended by IA Program Members alongside Statistics Department faculty and graduate students. Affiliates will have an opportunity to meet the students and faculty, and will give short presentations: a 25-minute informal talk that introduces the speaker and the company, and offers a discussion of the role of statistics within that company, or even poses a statistical problem of particular interest to that company or industry. We also expect a number of graduate students to present their research.
