SFU-UBC Joint Graduate Student Workshop in Statistics


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 two 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.

The new format of the seminar is being done to expand the networking aspect of the event, in order to allow students more time to meet their peers from the other institution. There will be time dedicated to an ice breaker event and a social trivia game with prizes at the end of the event. The seminar also contains the traditional important social components, namely the morning coffee and the lunch where students get more opportunity to network with each other and foster a mutually beneficial relationship between the departments.
