The theme of this year’s event, “Statistics: Growing to Serve a Data-Dependent Society,” seeks to cover the myriad of ways the discipline of statistics is contributing to society through both interdisciplinary work and the growth of the field as a problem-solving technology and as a profession. More than 150 sessions will cover a variety of statistical topics relevant to academia, government, business and many other sectors.
