Our theme this year is Better Living Through Statistics, a rather bold declaration, but a very accurate too, considering the manifold ways in which Statistics now permeates all walks of life.  

With the beautiful campus of the University of Rochester as our venue this year, along a great vibrant keynote speaker and five (5) potentially very enriching tutorials, we have again convene a platform to cater for as many statistical tastes as possible.

Besides, our data analytics competition, a feature of our conference series, welcomes this year a fascinating challenge centered around the Rochester Police Department (RPD) recently completed Data Portal. Get your young statistics and data science minded undergraduates and graduate students take the challenge of using data science and statistics to help understand and solve various patterns of public safety and crime.
