From Industrial Statistics to Data Science: A Conference in Honor of Vijay Nair
October 1, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - October 3, 2015 @ 4:00 pm
The conference “From Industrial Statistics to Data Science” is focused on the changing role and nature of statistics in industry and in academic collaborative research. It is also a celebration of the outstanding contributions of our colleague Professor Vijay Nair on the occasion of his 65th birthday. This conference aims to bring together researchers making fundamental contributions to methodology for complex and large-scale data analysis, researchers with deep ties to industry, and researchers with deep ties to emerging applied research in academia involving “big data”. A major goal is to promote connections between statistics researchers with a primarily methodological focus and researchers with close ties to specific application areas. This is an especially valuable opportunity for graduate students and new researchers who may not otherwise have the opportunity to see emerging statistical methods considered in an applications-oriented context.
