Send your ideas and proposals to the section’s program chair, Haitao Chu, at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 4, including the following information:
1. Session title
2. Session description that should include the following information:
a. Short description of the session that explains why it would be of interest to statisticians interested in epidemiologic applications.
b. List of invited speakers/panelists (affiliation, email address for each participant, and tentative title for each presentation). Indicate if speakers have been confirmed and will attend the 2015 meetings.
c. Format of session (e.g., paper or panel, number of speakers/discussants/panelists as applicable).
d. Session organizer (affiliation, email address).
e. Session chair (affiliation, email address).
f. Discussant (if any) (affiliation, email address).
In previous years, sessions with more complete information have had a greater likelihood of acceptance.
