UBC/SFU Joint Statistical Seminar (Winter 2016)

  • Date: 03/19/2016

Simon Fraser University, Harbour Center Campus, Vancouver


The idea of this event is to offer graduate students in Statistics and Actuarial Science with an opportunity to attend a seminar with accessible talks providing them an introduction to active areas of research in the field. For three students from each university the seminar allows them to present on their work, as well as to offer them an opportunity to develop their presentation skills with their peers.



Continuing with the usual format of past years this event will consist of talks given by six students (three from UBC and three from SFU) and two professors (one from each university). The seminar also contains important social components, namely the morning coffee and the lunch where students get an opportunity to network with each other and foster a mutually beneficial relationship between the departments.
