Call for JSM 2014 Invited Sessions

1 August 2013 148 views No Comment

It is time to start thinking about invited sessions for next year’s Joint Statistical Meetings, which will be held August 2–7 in Boston, Massachusetts. Anyone interested in organizing an invited session or who has ideas for one should contact the Biometric Section’s 2014 program chair, Jonathan Schildcrout, at jonathan.schildcrout@vanderbilt.edu.

A typical invited session consists of three 30-minute talks, followed by a 10-minute invited discussion and 10 minutes of floor discussion. However, other formats are possible. The 2013 program is a good source for examples.

Remember, the most mature ideas will have an advantage in competing for the limited number of slots, so it’s best to have your ideas in final form by the middle of June. The section will have at least four invited sessions, but will be able to compete for additional slots.

Finally, also submit ideas for short courses to the section’s 2013–2014 Continuing Education chair, Donglin Zeng, at dzeng@email.unc.edu.
