Austin Chapter of the American Statistical Association
The first Fall meeting of the Austin ASA will be held September 13th at 6:00 p.m. at the LBJ School (room to be announced).
The featured speaker will be Dr. Paul Damien, who has just joined the University as a statistician in the MSIS Department. He has published articles in a variety of fields and applications. Paul will be presenting some new work on: "Markov Chain Monte Carlo Methods." This is the computational method that has been said to make all of modern statistics possible. He was formerly a professor at the University of Michigan and is one of the world's foremost experts in Bayesian techniques. Paul worked for the Public Utility Commission in Texas prior to obtaining his PhD in England under Professor Adrian Smith.
Pizza will be provided to all who attend. A reminder will be sent out that includes exact location information.
You are welcome to bring colleagues who might be interested in this talk or in joining the Austin ASA Chapter. Any questions can be directed to Linda Golden.
Thanks for your interest and we look forward to seeing you.
