The Department of Computer Science and Statistics of the University of Rhode Island (URI) is proud to host the 34th New England Statistics Symposium on September 30 – October 2, 2021. As an annual event, 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.
The organizing committee has planned a hybrid conference, with some remote sessions and some in person at the URI campus in Providence. Please keep checking our website for updates and links for registration and submission.
We look forward to having an interesting and vibrant symposium!
