RSS 2017 Annual Conference

RSS 2015 conference

4 – 7 September 2017, Glasgow, Scotland

The RSS 2017 Conference will take place at the Technology and Innovation Centre at the University of Strathclyde in the centre of Glasgow.

Because of the range of topics presented and discussed and the breadth of the audience, this conference is the only one in the UK where all statisticians and users of data gather together. So it’s the best forum to share information, network and learn from one another.

The three-day conference programme offers a mix of keynote talks and sessions organised into ‘streams’ or topics, plus an equally diverse schedule of social events.

The programme chair for the 2017 Conference will be Dr Kim Kavanagh from the Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Strathclyde. Kim says, 'I am delighted that the RSS Conference is returning to Scotland and to Glasgow. We’re aiming to make it the most successful conference yet and we would love to hear your ideas of what you would like to see in the programme.'

The RSS Conference board is currently seeking initial proposals for sessions and workshops for the conference on any topic related to statistics and the use of data. The Conference will once again be based around topic streams which for 2017 are provisionally, but not limited to:

  • Applications of Statistics
  • Communicating & Teaching Statistics
  • Data Science
  • Environmental/Spatial Statistics
  • Industry & Commerce
  • Medical Statistics
  • Methods & Theory
  • Official Statistics & Public Policy
  • Social Statistics

Initial proposals should contain a provisional title for the session and ideally a brief description of what the session is intended to cover. Proposals must be submitted to the conference office no later than 25 September 2016.
