SPES Represents Well at JSM, Gives Outstanding Presentation Award

1 October 2016 No Comment
Submitted by Ananda Sen, SPES JSM Program Chair

    SPES had a fantastic year of representation at JSM, sponsoring five invited, two topic-contributed, and four contributed paper sessions, as well as one contributed poster session. Session topics ranged from traditional themes relating to reliability and designed experiments to more current discourse in computer experiments, remote sensing, and online experiments.

    SPES also cosponsored several sessions and organized two sold-out roundtables. “Online Experimentation: What It Is and Why It Is So Important” was conducted by Peter Qian from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and “Is Your Mixed Model Analysis Mixed Up?” was led by Phil Gibbs from SAS Institute.
