Schedule of SPES, Q&P and Co-Sponsored Activities at JSM 2000
Robert N. Rodriguez, 2000 JSM Program Chair
In support of the JSM 2000 theme, the Section on Physical and Engineering Sciences will be celebrating the Meetings with a variety of traditional and forward-looking sessions that reflect the rich diversity of its members and their interests.
SPES will be the primary sponsor for four invited sessions:
SPES is also co-sponsoring the following invited sessions:
There are two SPES topic contributed sessions:
The SPES regular contributed sessions cover advances in a broad range of areas, including design of experiments, reliability and fatigue data analysis, and statistical modeling in engineering and physical science. SPES is also co-sponsoring Q&P contributed sessions in the areas of statistical process control and adjustment.
Join us in Indianapolis for the celebration!

SPES is pleased to announce the offering of two short courses at the 2000 JSM in Indianapolis. The date and time of each course will be published in the JSM registration packets which will be mailed to all ASA members in May/June 2000.
Dr. William Meeker and Dr. Luis Escobar will present this one-day course on modern methods for analyzing failure-time and degradation data. This course will describe and illustrate the use of a mix of proven traditional techniques, enhanced and brought up-to-date with modern computer-based methodology. Topics to be covered include censored data, nonparametric estimation, probability plotting, maximum likelihood estimation, likelihood-based confidence intervals, acceleration models, accelerated life testing, and accelerated degradation testing. Most of the examples in the course will come from applications of product reliability, but some biological examples will also be presented to illustrate the breadth of application.
Dr. Meeker is Professor of Statistics and Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Iowa State University. Dr. Escobar is a Professor in the Department of Experimental Statistics at Louisiana State University.
This course is being co-sponsored by the SPES and Q&P sections and was succesfully presented at the 1998 JSM in Dallas, Texas.
Dr. R. Todd Ogden's presentation of this half-day course is designed to give the participants enough background information on wavelets to allow them to begin using wavelets in data analysis. The first part of the course will introduce participants to wavelet functions, starting with the simplest wavelet function, the Haar wavelet. This will be followed by multiresolution analysis, computational aspects of the discrete wavelet transformation, and a comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of other wavelet families.
The second part of the course will treat a variety of standard statistical problems and demonstrate how the strengths of wavelet methods lend themselves well to these problems. Applications such as histograms, density estimation, nonparametric regression, thresholding, and time series will be addressed. The course closes wil an overview of some of the wavelet software that is available, with a discussion of their relative strengths.
Dr. Ogden is an Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina.
