The SRC is the annual meeting of the Section on Physical and Engineering Statistics (SPES) of the American Statistical Association (ASA). Although historically emphasizing industrial statistics, design of experiments, quality and reliability, the meeting increasingly emphasizes modern methods on statistics, machine learning and high performance computing in statistical methodology, with diverse applications encompassing all areas of applied sciences. The conference is intended to stimulate interactions among statisticians, researchers in the application areas, and industrial practitioners. A number of student scholarships will be provided to selected graduate students who submit contributed papers.
