Considering JSM Sessions and Roundtables
Theresa Utlaut, Intel Corp.
Do you think Vancouver, British Columbia, will be as exciting this summer as it was for the 2010 Winter Olympics? If you watched some of the Olympic events, such as downhill skiing, snowboarding, speedskating, or figure skating, you may doubt it. However, after you think about it for just a bit and indulge the passion of your profession, you shouldn’t be surprised to find that your answer has become “very likely.”
The theme of the 2010 JSM is “Statistics: A Key to Innovation in a Data-Centric World.” In support of this theme, the Quality and Productivity Section is proud to sponsor two invited sessions and four roundtables. In addition, Q&P is sponsoring or cosponsoring numerous invited and contributed sessions that cover a wide range of topics and represent the interests of our members.
