Reading Local Group


We are the Royal Statistical Society local group for Reading and the surrounding area. We arrange a series of talks for the local statistical community, including statisticians in industry and academia, and others with some interest in statistics. Some of these talks are mainly for an academic audience, but others are of wider interest to the statistical community, usually focussing on local interests such as pharmaceuticals or meteorology. All the events are free and open to members of the RSS and non-members. To aid attendance from a wide group, events are held in a variety of locations and times.
