Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is a favorite vacation destination for many nationalities. Its natural attractions include miles of sandy beaches, picturesque mountains, tea plantations, botanical gardens, fast-flowing rivers and waterfalls, historical sites, ancient kingdoms, sacred religious places, and lush tropical forests full of exotic wildlife. The island’s rich cultural heritage is visible everywhere, including in the many colorful festivals and ceremonies.

The Applied Statistics Association of Sri Lanka and The University of Sydney School of Mathematics and Statistics will hold an international statistics conference in Colombo, Sri Lanka, from December 28 to 30 and are soliciting papers in English from all areas of statistics, related applications, and statistics education. The theme for this conference, “Statistical Concepts and Methods for the Modern World,” allows for presentations on a wide range of topics in theoretical and applied statistics.

The purpose of the conference is to unite statisticians from across the world as they present their latest research findings on statistics theory and applications. C. R. Rao and ASA President Nancy L. Geller will be keynote speakers. In addition, a number of world-renowned experts in statistical science will deliver special invited addresses. These include John Robinson of The University of Sydney, Australia; Martin Hazelton of Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand; Roshini Sooriyarachchi of the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka; Frits Ruymgaart of Texas Tech University; Neville Weber of The University of Sydney, Australia; William Dunsmuir of the University of New South Wales, Australia; Rahul Mukerjee of the Indian Institute of Management, Kolkata, India; and Tim Swartz of Simon Fraser University, Canada.

Paper presentations will be predominantly invited, though a limited number of contributed paper sessions will be held. If you would like to contribute, send an abstract of about 300 words to shelton.peiris@sydney.edu.au (international participants) or cdt@stat.cmb.ac.lk (local participants) before April 30.

All submitted papers will be reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in a refereed conference proceeding. Outstanding articles that are recommended to the executive editorial board have a higher chance of being published in a special volume of Sri Lankan Journal of Applied Statistics (SLJAS) or another refereed international journal.

Full-length manuscripts must be submitted by June 30 with the conference registration fee. Manuscripts submitted without the registration fee will not be considered for publication in SLJAS and/or for presentation at the conference.

More information about the conference, including registration details, can be found on the conference web page.
