Statistical Science in Society

A conference to celebrate the International Year of Statistics and the launch of the Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute

July 31 - August 2, 2013

In June 2012, the Statistical Society of Canada approved the formation of a separate entity, the Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute/Institut canadien des sciences statistiques (CANSSI/INCASS), which will work with the Fields Institute, the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, to promote and sponsor research in the statistical sciences across Canada.  CANSSI was officially launched in November 2012 and the process of identifying directions for research in Canada over the next few years has begun.  The University of Waterloo, with support from the Fields Institute, is hosting a conference to celebrate the International Year of Statistics and the launch of CANSSI.
