Rice University to Host StatFest 2013
Rice University is hosting StatFest 2013, a one-day conference aimed at encouraging undergraduate students from historically under-represented groups to consider careers and graduate studies in the statistical sciences. The conference will take place October 12.
The conference is an ongoing initiative of the ASA through its Committee on Minorities in Statistics. It includes presentations from established professionals, academic leaders, and current graduate students that will help attendees understand the opportunities and routes for success in the field. Panel forums include information and tips for a rewarding graduate student experience, achieving success as an academic statistician, and opportunities in the private and government arenas.
Attendance at the conference is free, though registration is required. To register and obtain more information, visit the StatFest website.
