Come join us for an exciting StatFest conference on the campus of Rice University. StatFest is a one-day conference aimed at encouraging students from under-represented groups to consider careers and graduate studies in the statistical sciences.The conference is an ongoing initiative of the American Statistical Association, through its Committee on Minorities in Statistics. The program includes presentations from established professionals, academic leaders, and current graduate students that will help attendees understand the opportunities and routes for success in the field. Panel forums include information on tips for a rewarding graduate student experience, achieving success as an academic statistician, opportunities in the private and government arenas, among other topics. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about a profession that enjoys increasing demand from employers and high job satisfaction among practitioners.
Attendance at the conference is free, though registration is required. Registration will open soon.
