WELCOME TO NESS 2024: Statistics Empowering AI

Conference Dates: May 20 - 24, 2024

The Department of Statistics of the University of Connecticut (UConn) is proud to host the 37th New England Statistics Symposium on May 20 - 24, 2024. 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 it was first started at UConn in 1987. The symposium will be hybrid, with in-person sessions held at Storrs (UConn campus) and all sessions broadcast live. Please refer to the UCONN-GUEST page for internet access at UConn campus.
