Concurrent and Speed Abstract Submission
March 1- April 20, 2017

We are calling for concurrent and speed abstracts from senior, mid-level, and junior stars representing industrial, academic, and government communities who are interested in presenting their life’s work and sharing their perspectives on the role of women in today’s statistics and data science fields.

Concurrent Abstracts    CLOSED

Abstracts are being accepted until April 20, 2017, for a limited number of concurrent session presentations. Each presentation will focus on any one of the following three broad themes:

  • Knowledge

Speed Abstracts    CLOSED

A speed session consists of a short oral presentation and electronic poster presentation given within the same day. These sessions serve as an excellent teaching tool, allowing for direct and immediate feedback, broad exposure, and the ability to display extensive graphics, tables, and animations.
