The Boston Chapter of the ASA, in collaboration with the BUSCASA, is organizing a Student Research Symposium in Statistics and Data Science at Boston University on April 25th. The goal of the event is to create a venue for students in New England to present their research and network with peers from other institutions. In addition to a keynote speaker, the event will include opportunities for oral and poster presentations in all areas of research involving statistics, biostatistics, and data science. Whether you are a current student interested in presenting your research, or a prospective student curious about graduate programs, please consider joining us for a day of presentations on the exciting work being conducted by students in our region!
