The program committee for the 2015 Western North American Region of The International Biometric Society (WNAR)/Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) Annual Meeting is soliciting invited session proposals. The 2015 WNAR/IMS Annual Meeting will be held June 14-17, 2015 in Boise, Idaho. An invited session should bring together a small number of speakers (3-4) on a particular statistical topic. The speakers could include a discussant. We encourage the submission of proposals covering a wide range of topics in the theory and application of statistics to health, biological and life sciences.
Proposals should include:
1. Your name, affiliation, and contact information
2. Proposed session title and keywords
3. Description of and motivation for the proposed session
4. Speaker (and discussant, if applicable) names, affiliations, contact information, and tentative talk titles
Invited session proposals should be sent by email to the WNAR Program Chair, Layla Parast: firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31, 2015. Proposals will be evaluated by the joint WNAR/IMS program committee and session organizers will be informed by mid-March of acceptance, rejection or revision (on topic and speakers). Please note that acceptance of a proposal comes without any financial compensation for the session organizer or speakers
