The statistical sciences are key to the efficient collection, understanding and exploitation of data in all areas of industry, including emerging and high-value sectors. In addition, challenges from industry and science continue to provide stimulus for new research directions for the discipline.
This event will bring together researchers from industry, applied and methodological Statistics to explore new challenges, disseminate best practice and to encourage and mentor early career researchers.
Three themes (see below) have been identified for the workshop that are of current and direct interest to industry and that cut across a variety of areas of research in Statistics.
This workshop will provide the impetus to develop a continuing forum for collaborative activities and knowledge exchange between the Statistics academic community and industrial scientists. One workshop aim is to elicit and develop ideas from the scientific and industrial community about the form this network should take, for example, regular six-monthly meetings and seminars and social media resources.
