New Researchers in Seattle

17th IMS New Researchers Conference
August 6–8, 2015
University of Washington, Seattle, WA

The 17th IMS New Researchers Conference is an annual meeting organized under the auspices of the IMS, and jointly sponsored this year by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Google, and other federal agencies and industry sponsors. The conference is hosted by the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Washington and will be held just prior to the 2015 Joint Statistical Meetings in Seattle (see below).

The purpose of the conference is to promote interaction and networking among new researchers in probability and statistics. If you received a PhD in or after 2010, or expect to defend your thesis by the end of 2015, you are eligible to apply to attend. Due to limited space, participation is by invitation only.

More information may be found at http://depts.washington.edu/imsnrc17/ including a link to the application information page. Application deadline is March 27, 2015.

Higher priority will be given to first-time applicants. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Contingent on the availability of funds, financial support for travel and accommodation may be provided. However, participants are strongly encouraged to seek partial funding from other sources.

JSM 2015
August 8–13, 2015, Seattle, WA

The Joint Statistical Meetings in Seattle, WA, take place from August 8–13, 2015. JSM also includes the next IMS Annual Meeting. If you have never been to JSM it’s a great experience but, since it’s such a large meeting (typically over 5000 delegates) it can be a little overwhelming for the newcomers. Check out the advice on the First Time Attendees page. Registration and housing reservations open April 30, 2015.

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
