The IISA annual conference for 2018 will take place at the HPNP Complex of the University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida. The format of the conference includes plenary talks, special invited talks, invited sessions and contributed posters. The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) will strive to maintain a healthy presence of women and minority in all these categories and of young researchers (within five years of their doctoral degrees) in invited sessions. In addition, a special panel discussion on mentoring and career development, especially geared toward women statisticians is being organized. For students, the conference will provide numerous opportunities such as a student paper competition and contributed poster sessions at IISA-2018.
The SPC is currently accepting proposals for invited sessions. Please submit by January 15, 2018.
