What is NESS?

NESS is an annual one-day symposium that began in 1987 that provides the opportunity for statisticians from academia, industry, and government to meet and exchange ideas regarding statistical methods and applications, and important issues in the statistics profession.

The mission of 2014 NESS is to foster statistics and its applications by promoting research in statistics, providing an educational opportunity for students and others to learn about statistical methods and its applications, and encouraging interaction and collaboration among statisticians.

The format is a mixture of plenary speakers, invited sessions, and contributed sessions.

In addition, students are encouraged to submit papers for consideration in the Best Student Paper Competition. Interested students should submit their paper no later than Monday, March 24, 2014, following the instructions in the Student Paper Competition section.
