Welcome to NESS 2019: Statistical Data Science in Action!

Conference Dates: May 15--17, 2019
Location: Hilton Hartford

The Department of Statistics of the University of Connecticut (UConn) is proud to host the 33rd New England Statistics Symposium (NESS) on May 15--17, 2019. The symposium has been bringing together statisticians from all over New England to a central location to share research, discuss emerging issues in the field, and network with colleagues since it was first started at UConn in 1987. Since the establishment of the New England Statistical Society in 2017, the symposium is held jointly with the society and a local host every year.

The symposium will be a 3-day event, featuring short courses, plenary talks, invited sessions, career development panel discussion, student paper competition, student poster competition, statathon, and Chernoff Lecture. In addition to being a larger scale event, two new features are the statathon and the Chernoff Lecture.
