Lunch Roundtable Discussion Sessions for the ISI WSC 2017
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
After the successful introduction at the 2015 ISI World Statistics Congress (WSC) in Rio de Janeiro, the 2017 ISI WSC in Marrakech will offer again Lunch Roundtable Discussion (LRTD) sessions.
A lunch roundtable discussion is an opportunity to enjoy fellowship and conversation with colleagues about a statistical concept, method, or practice while also having lunch. These discussions provide a great chance to interact and to network with fellow participants.
We invite you and your colleagues to submit any ideas that you feel would make for a good lunch roundtable discussion for the 2017 WSC. Here are the LRTDs presented at 2015 WSC:
We would love to see proposals from any ISI member, from each Association and Special Interest Group and from partnerships. This would be a great opportunity to highlight common interests and collaboration between associations and special interest groups. Ideally, each ISI Association and Special Interest Group should organize and host or co-host one or more lunch roundtables.
