For members of the University of Virginia Student Chapter, preparing for and attending the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM) in Vancouver was a priceless experience. Not only did they get to explore some of the most exciting topics in statistics, they were given the opportunity to join various groups within the statistical community and present their work.

Using their individual strengths, the students created material that accurately conveyed the error in prediction of weather in various forms. This allowed them to improve their communication, teamwork, and analytical skills; however, attending JSM gave them the added opportunity of exploring more ways to represent and model the data through the constructive feedback they received during their poster session.

The students also enjoyed exploring Vancouver and all the city offers. “It was truly an amazing experience,” says Katherine Qian. “I would recommend anyone interested in the field of statistics to attend.”
