Last month, the departments of Mathematics & Statistics and Biostatistics hosted the 26th Annual New England Statistics Symposium. It was the first time this New England institution had been held at BU, and it was an unequivocal success.
The weather cooperated, bringing sunshine to the MED campus venue. Over 180 people registered to see two plenary speakers and nineteen different sessions. In addition, participants took part in three short courses the day before the symposium. The courses focused on clinical trials, network analysis, and financial data analysis. The organizers received compliments on everything from the attendees to the talks to the food, and even the weather, according to Professor Eric Kolaczyk of Mathematics & Statistics.
