Cleveland Chapter Hosts Workshop and Symposium

1 September 2013 27 views No Comment

In celebration of the International Year of Statistics, the Cleveland Chapter of the ASA and department of statistics at the University of Akron are sponsoring a workshop and symposium in October.

The hands-on workshop, “Introduction to Statistical Computing with R and Bioconductor,” will take place October 4 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the University of Akron campus. This workshop is a unique opportunity to learn the basics of both R and Bioconductor from members of the Bioconductor Core Development Group at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle). The number of participants for this workshop is capped at 35 (first come, first served).

Following the workshop is a full-day symposium, called “Statistics at the Crossroads: Its Multifaceted Impact on the Society.” The symposium, which will be from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. October 5, seeks to provide a compact overview of statistics’ all-pervasive and multifaceted impact on society. The symposium will include eminent invited speakers, as well as contributed poster and oral presentations.
