You won’t want to miss such a festival of Statistical Science and Data Science, that has now, for seven (7) years in a row, revitalized the statistical dynamics of our community. 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. As of today, UP-STAT 2018 is only eleven (11) weeks away. Please encourage your undergraduate and graduate students, and certainly your colleagues to attend this exciting conference. Go ahead and register right now to make the most of this gathering of brilliant minds! Be sure to encourage your students, your friends and your colleagues to attend. The UP-STAT conference series has developed into an ideal platform for the dissemination of the research work of graduate students and young professors. It is a friendly atmosphere with tons of opportunities to learn state of the art statistical methods and network with other statisticians and data scientists.

I will review the various challenges confronting efforts to measure the stellar mass growth of massive galaxies, and the significant implications of these discrepancies for theoretical models of  galaxy formation.  I will then describe ongoing work to obtain an accurate census of the integrated stellar mass content of massive galaxies at intermediate redshift using new deep, wide-area optical and mid-infrared imaging from the Legacy Surveys ( Finally, for the data science enthusiasts, I will also describe some of the big-data challenges confronting the Legacy Surveys, as well as the forthcoming Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) survey. BIO: John Moustakas received a Bachelor of Arts degree with High Honors in Physics and Astrophysics, with a minor in English Literature, from the University of California, Berkeley in 2000. One of the highlights of his college career was the year spent abroad at the Edinburgh University in Scotland taking classes at the Royal Observatory. He attended graduate school at the University of Arizona and obtained both a Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Astrophysics.  His esis, completed in 2006 under the direction of Prof. Robert Kennicutt and Prof. Dennis Zartisky, was entitled "Spectral Diagnostics of Galaxy Evolution." He went on to complete two 3-year post-doctoral research fellowships, first at New York University with Prof. Michael Blanton, and then at the University of California, San Diego with Prof. Alison Coil. Finally, Moustakas joined the faculty at Siena College as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in 2012.  RSVP to Segev BenZvi, Assistant Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy, sybenzvi@pas.rochester.eduBausch & Lomb 375false15236424000002018-04-13T14:00:0015236460000002018-04-13T15:00:00Talks2018/04/0413_growth-of-massive-galaxies-with-john-moustakas.htmlfalseOnceRDDS Journal Club 92b8755cac19042a64a6ddae8c010a51Wegmans Hall 1201false15233760000002018-04-10T12:00:0015233814000002018-04-10T13:30:00Meetings2018/04/0410_rdds-journal-club.htmlfalseOnceCareers in Data Science: Anoti Deyala '14S9812aefbac19042a64a6ddae219aea12Schlegel Hall 207false15240852000002018-04-18T17:00:0015240888000002018-04-18T18:00:00Career Events2018/04/0418_careers-in-data-science-anoti-deyala-14s.htmlfalseOnce***CANCELLED*** Brent Seales, University of Kentucky98166b18ac19042a64a6ddae48545081Wegmans Hall 1400 (auditorium), River Campusfalse15239916000002018-04-17T15:00:0015239952000002018-04-17T16:00:00Talks2018/04/0417_brent-seales,-university-of-kentucky.htmlfalseOnceDataFest@RITaa23008aac19042a64a6ddaed81440feRochester Institute of Technology (RIT)false15236532000002018-04-13T17:00:0015238260000002018-04-15T17:00:00Meetings2018/04/0413_datafest-rit.htmltrueOnceCTSI Analytics Colloquium: Deep Learning Methodsaacf1596ac19042a64a6ddae37346617Whipple Auditorium (2-6424) in the Medical Centerfalse15245820000002018-04-24T11:00:0015245856000002018-04-24T12:00:00Talks2018/04/0424_ctsi-analytics-colloquium-deep-learning-methods.htmlfalseOnce Computer Science Colloquium Series: Bimal Viswanathaad9041dac19042a64a6ddaece49f66eWegmans Hall 1400 (auditorium), River Campusfalse15232896000002018-04-09T12:00:0015232932000002018-04-09T13:00:00Meetings2018/04/0409_computer-science-colloquium-series-bimal-viswanath.htmlfalseOnceOpen Access Publishing with Michael Eisend4849581ac19042a64a6ddae90b5958cInterested in hearing about open access publishing and the way it is affecting how scholarly work is communicated to the world? Come to hear Professor Michael Eisen, the co-founder of the Public Library of Science, speak about “The Journal Free Future of Scholarly Publishing.” His presentation will be in room 1400, Wegmans Hall, from 3:30-4:30 pm on Tuesday, April 24.
