Young Statisticians Meeting at Imperial College, London

The Young Statisticians Meeting (YSM2013) is a fantastic opportunity to present and discuss your work with other young statisticians in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Attendees are encouraged to give a talk and/or submit a poster. The meeting is traditionally aimed at statisticians in the first ten years of their career.

Presentations on current PhD research are therefore welcomed as are talks on work experience in industry or public service.

The conference fee will be £100. Accommodation close to Imperial College London for Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th July is available and can be booked separately on the conference website (there are 70 rooms available). Those who would like to stay in London for the weekend are welcome to book extended accommodation for Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July (there are 15 rooms available).

Presentations on current PhD research are therefore welcomed as well as talks on work in progress on applied experience.

The registration and submissions are now open, with the following deadlines:

Submission closing: February 28, 2013

Notification of acceptance: March 15, 2013.

Research Students Conference (RSC 2013)

The conference will be held at Lancaster University between 25 and 28 March 2013. The RSC is a friendly conference run by students for students in the field of Statistics, Probability and (for the first time) Applied Social Statistics. It is a great place to meet fellow students, form inter-institution connections and present work, possibly for the first time.

All PhD students are welcome to this conference and as is tradition, all applications to present work will be accepted on a first come first serve basis as there are limited spaces.

To register or for further information please visit http://www.maths.lancs.ac.uk/~rsc2013/ or email rsc2013@lancaster.ac.uk

On behalf of the organising committee, we look forward to seeing you in March.
