Concurrent and Panel Abstracts

The 2021 WSDS Conference Committee accepted abstracts for concurrent, speed, e-poster, and contributed on-demand sessions. Presentations focused on any one of the following three broad themes:

  • Knowledge
  • Community
  • Influence

Concurrent Sessions include up to three presentations per session (approximately 30 minutes each) and are grouped by the Women in Statistics and Data Science Executive Committee.

Panel Sessions are organized and chaired by the main submitting abstract organizer. This individual is responsible for selecting speakers to present during the session. The session can be organized as a traditional panel session with multiple panelists discussing one topic or multiple presentations on a similar topic.

Speed Session Abstracts    CLOSED

Speed Sessions are a “hybrid” of a poster and presentation session and consist of 20 oral presentations of two minutes each that act as an “elevator pitch” for your poster presentation. The short oral presentations are followed by an electronic poster (e-poster) presentation at a later time. An e-poster is like a traditional poster presentation but presented on a large computer screen.

A speed presentation also serves as an excellent teaching tool, allowing for direct and immediate feedback; broad exposure; and the ability to display extensive graphics, tables, and animations.
