The UBC Statistics Department and the SFU Statistics and Actuarial Science Department jointly host one seminar per term at a central location in Vancouver. These seminars are intended to be informal, and at a level accessible to graduate students. The goal is to create a cohesive community of statisticians in the GVRD, and, in particular, to increase the interaction among faculty and students at UBC and SFU.

Abstracts / Downloads / Reports: 

We will have coffee/tea and desserts at the Blenz Coffee across from Harbour Centre starting from 9:30am.
The workshop will officially begin at 10:15am.
