Conference Dates: June 3-6, 2023

Venue: Boston University

The Department of Biostatistics and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of Boston University (BU) is proud to host the 36th New England Statistics Symposium on June 3-6, 2023. As an annual event, the symposium has been bringing together statisticians from all over New England and beyond to a central location to share research, discuss emerging issues in the field, and network with colleagues since its inaugural edition in 1987. The symposium will be hybrid, with in-person sessions held in Boston (BU Charles river campus) and all sessions broadcast live via Whova.

Session Schedule

Short courses will be offered on June 3 and 4, and the main conference program will be on June 5 and 6. We will have keynote sessions, keynote panel, invited sessions, and a poster session. Students are encouraged to participate in the research and poster competitions and a Statathon data challenging. In addition to the keynote talks, a banquet talk will be given by TBD and a Chernoff Lecture to be delivered by the recipient of the Chernoff Excellence in Statistics Award.
