They are interested in contributions to statistical methodology as well as to statistical practice, consulting, and education. Moreover, they welcome submissions at the interface of statistics and other disciplines such as computer science, biology/medicine, social sciences, and business/finance. The conference will be an exciting venue for statisticians/data scientists to network and discuss topics relevant to their work and research interests.
