Greg Piepel, Industrial Speakers Program Chair

    The SPES Marquardt Memorial Speakers Program facilitates visits of experienced applied statisticians to colleges and universities to give a seminar and meet with students and professors.

    SPES reimburses the host institution for up to $1,000 (previously $500) to cover the expenses of the speaker’s visit.

    Speakers provide information to students about (i) what an applied statistician does; (ii) how they solve problems in science, engineering, technology, and business; and (iii) what nontechnical skills are required to be successful as an applied statistician.

    The Marquardt Industrial Speakers Program was established by SPES in the early 1990s to coordinate visits by experienced statisticians to universities and colleges across the country and encourage careers in applied statistics. If you are an institution interested in having a speaker, or a SPES member interested in being on the speakers list (or working directly with a local institution to set up a visit), contact Greg Piepel at greg.piepel@pnnl.gov or (509) 375-6911.
