The ASA NJ Chapter proudly held its 39th annual Spring Symposium on June 29th, 2018 at Rutgers RWJ Medical School, Piscataway, NJ. Advances in Data Visualization and Exploration Techniques was this year’s theme. Jing Gong, President of the NJ Chapter, welcomed nearly 60 people and gave a short presentation summarizing 2018 Chapter activities. Our distinguished speakers and their topics included: Mark Hansen (Columbia University), Computational Propaganda; Douglas Robinson (Novartis), Using Dynamic Displays to Maximize the Value of Data; Sanjay Matange (SAS Institute), Clinical Graphics Using SAS; Naomi Robbins (NBR), How to Avoid Some Common Graphical Mistakes; and Zhiheng Xu (FDA/CDRH), Data Mining and Visualization in the Regulation of Medical Devices. In addition 3 posters were on display by Gary Chung, Michael Fundator, and Ejiro Gbaje. The talks were followed by a lively panel discussion.
