Call for Expressions of Interest – Hosting CANSSI
We are inviting institutions from across the country to submit expressions of interest in becoming the host institution for CANSSI. Becoming the host institution provides an opportunity to build and shape statistical sciences across the country, across the host institution’s province, and within the local community. See here for more information.
We recently asked for comments regarding a discussion document outlining some options for the future of CANSSI. If you haven’t already commented, you’re still welcome to do so. The discussion document is available online.
SAMSI Undergraduate Workshops
Canadian undergraduate students can apply to CANSSI for funding support to attend these SAMSI workshops. Applications are accepted at the same time as the SAMSI applications are due. The next SAMSI Undergraduate Workshop takes place February 27-28, 2017. SAMSI and CANSSI applications are due on January 13, 2017. Please note that your SAMSI application should state that you are applying to CANSSI for funding.
Industrial Problem Solving Workshops
The purpose of CANSSI is to advance research in the statistical sciences in Canada by attracting new researchers to the field, increasing the points of contact among researchers nationally and internationally, and developing scientific collaborations with other disciplines and organizations.
