Time: Sunday, August 9, 2015: 8:30am to 1:30pm

On Sunday, August 9th, the Caucus of Academic Reps will hold the 9th annual workshop for Chairs of Programs in Statistics and Biostatistics. This half-day workshop will foster discussion between new and experienced chairs on a range of topics from the scientific diversification of our field and its implications for education and departmental organization, to funding opportunities to support faculty research.

Meeting locations are in process but the workshop will be held at one of the conference hotels. This site will be updated when this information is available.The Program Chair for this workshop is David Hunter (dhunter@stat.psu.edu); feel free to contact him for additional information.

In order to keep registration fees reasonable, the Caucus is providing partial support for this Workshop. There will be a registration fee of $100 per participant (in addition to and separate from JSM registration) to cover the remaining costs.

Registration includes breakfast and lunch on the day of the Workshop. Registration is available at https://www.amstat.org/eseries/scriptcontent/beweb/event/eventinfo.cfm?product_major=CHAIRS2015.

Hotels should be booked through the JSM meeting site.

The Workshop is highly interactive with presentations designed to spark lively and fruitful discussions–for which we have built in time and flexibility for Chairs to interact and get to know each other. A detailed agenda will be posted on this site.
