Announcing a new relationship with ACM

We are pleased to announce that IMS will be engaging in joint activities with the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), addressing the dynamic field of Data Science.

As an initial event, the ACM–IMS Interdisciplinary Summit on the Foundations of Data Science will be held June 15, 2019, in San Francisco. The event will bring together luminaries from Computing and Statistics for keynotes and panels on important topics in Data Science, such as fairness, privacy, ethics, causal inference, deep learning, and reinforcement learning, in addition to discussions about the future of Data Science and the role of ACM and IMS. Information about the program and registration will be available shortly at http://acct-www.acm.org/data-science-summit

We are also pleased to announce a joint membership agreement for the two societies. IMS members will receive a 25% discount on ACM membership. Student IMS members will receive free ACM membership. Information about this joint membership is available at https://www.acm.org/membership/joint-member-rates-for-ims

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!
