This two-day workshop complements the half-day annual workshop held the Sunday of JSM. The two-day format allows for - in-depth considerations of selected topics, more discussion, and more time for networking. The Washington, DC location makes it possible to highlight DC-based presenters (e.g., federal research funding representatives). Encouraged by the positive feedback from the 2016 ASA Statistics and Biostatistics Department Chairs Meeting, we are excited to be hosting this workshop.

We hope you will participate in both this workshop and the JSM workshop.
