    Speed Abstract Submission

Speed Abstract Submission

Speed Abstract Submission   CLOSED
February 16 - March 24, 2016

We are calling for speed session abstracts from senior, mid-level, and junior stars representing the industrial, academic, and government communities who would like to present their life's work or share their perspectives on the role of women in today's statistics and data science fields.

A speed session consists of a short oral presentation followed by an electronic poster session later the same day. Electronic poster presentations are a great way to have an extended face-to-face discussion. They also serve as an excellent teaching tool, allowing for direct and immediate feedback; broad exposure; and the ability to display extensive graphics, tables, and animations.

All submissions should include a title, author information, and abstract text (between 800 and 1,200 characters). Presenters are required to host their electronic posters during their assigned 75- to 90-minute session. For details about the poster format, see Poster Presentation Tips.
