StatFest 2017 at Emory University  

StatFest is a one day conference aimed at encouraging undergraduate students from historically underrepresented groups to consider careers and graduate studies in the
statistical sciences. The conference is an ongoing initiative of the American Statistical Association through its Committee on Minorities in Statistics.

StatFest includes presentations from established professionals, academic leaders, and current graduate students that will help attendees understand the opportunities and routes for success in the field. Panel forums provide information and tips for a rewarding graduate student experience, achieving success as an academic statistician, opportunities in the private and
government arenas, among other topics.

We are excited that StatFest 2017 will be held in Atlanta, Georgia at Emory University, one of the world’s leading research universities ranked as one of the top 20 universities in the United States of America. The conference is hosted by the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at the Rollins School of Public Health.

While the conference is free, registration is required (see the link at http://tinyurl.com/statfest to register or for more information).
