General Applications Section


The General Applications Section (GAS) is concerned with the exposition, 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. GAS 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 the Study Groups and Sections of the future (a successful example of this is with the creation of the Environmental Statistics Section). The GAS Committee includes representation from across Academia and Industry. We welcome collaboration and interaction with other Sections, Study Groups, Local Groups, and RSS members.
