05 March 2018 Young Researchers Using Statistics Symposium 2018 - Aberdeen 23rd May - Call For Abstracts The Young Statisticians’ Section of The Royal Statistical Society (RSS) Highland Local Group are pleased to announce that registration and submission of abstracts are now open for the second biennial ‘Young Researchers using Statistics’ (YRS) symposium.

The YRS symposium will be held in the Sir Duncan Rice Library, Old Aberdeen on Wednesday 23rd May from 9am to 5pm.

The symposium will consist of short presentations and include opportunities for networking (see flyer of the event attached). There will be a prize of £50 in Amazon Vouchers for the best talk!

This event aims to encourage young or early career researchers from the local research community who use interesting statistical methods to meet and chat about their research and present their work to a friendly audience for constructive feedback. The long-term aim is to create a supportive community of practice. Researchers and students using more advanced statistical methods are welcome, although given the mixed disciplines, talks should not be overly technical with the emphasis on applied methods if possible.

Submission of abstracts is NOW open with a deadline of 23rd March 2018.

Best Wishes,
