Call for student and early career presenters

We are looking for professional statisticians and students that are interested in sharing their work and experiences. The presentations should give an overview of your work and the content should be relevant to the wider field of statistics. This can range from introducing new methodologies or application demonstrations to sharing hands-on experience in the application of stats to “real-life data”.

As this is an online event, there will be digital presentations in addition to oral presentations. Please the Abstracts section for submission details.
