Emerging Applications Section


The Emerging Applications Section (EAS) is concerned with the study, informal debate and discussion of statistical subjects across a wide range of fields of application with a view to making statistical developments accessible to a broad general audience. EAS covers diverse, niche, and emerging application domains, and often demonstrates the applicability and value of new methodological enhancements in the context of such applications. We aspire to generate special interest groups and sections of the future (a successful example of this is with the creation of the Environmental Statistics Section). The EAS committee includes representation from across academia and industry. We welcome collaboration and interaction with other sections, special interest groups, local groups and RSS members.
