2012 annual meeting

The 2012 Albuquerque Chapter meeting was held in Santa Fe on Friday, June 15, 2012. The highlight of the meeting was a one-day short course, Introduction to Monte Carlo Methods, taught by Kert Viele of Berry Consultants, LLC. The course provided an introduction to many standard Monte Carlo techniques, including Monte Carlo integration and Markov chain Monte Carlo, and was attended by over 50 people, many from outside the chapter. Many thanks to the ASA Council of Chapters for subsidizing the course registration fees significantly.
