Q&P Invites All to Fall Technical Conference
Members of the Quality and Productivity Section (Q&P) invite you to attend this year’s Fall Technical Conference (FTC) in St. Louis, Missouri, from October 4–5. The conference is a premier forum in which to discuss topics at the interface of statistics and quality, leading to a more effective use of statistics to improve quality.
The theme for this year is “Statistics and Quality: Expanding the Horizon.” The program includes a range of talks about subjects such as experimental design, reliability analysis, data mining, and statistical process control. Highlights include a plenary address by Connie M. Borror from Arizona State University and the
W. J. Youden Memorial Address by C. F. Jeff Wu from Georgia Tech.
The Q&P invited session on computer experiments features William Myers from the Proctor and Gamble Company, who will give a talk titled “The Unique Challenges of Computer Experiments: An Industrial Perspective,” and Roshan Joseph from Georgia Tech, who will give a talk titled “Composite Gaussian Process Models.”
Q&P also is sponsoring a short course on October 3, titled Methods and Applications of Generalized Linear Models, which will be taught by Douglas Montgomery. This short course describes and illustrates the use of generalized linear models and shows how this approach is an attractive alternative to more traditional analysis.
