East Midlands Local Group


The East Midlands Local Group was revived in late 2014 after a period of inactivity.

Our main activity is the organisation of a programme of meetings at which statisticians and non-statisticians from across the region come together to hear about and discuss statistics and its applications. These meetings are intended to appeal to anyone with an interest (professional or otherwise) in statistics. Meetings are held primarily in Nottingham and Leicester, but it is intended that our geographical coverage will expand as the group re-establishes its presence. To encourage discussion and socialisation amongst attendees, refreshments are normally available before and/or after the meetings.
