Pieces of my 2013 JSM puzzle

This is what happens when you google “statistics conference”

While I can’t guarantee Montreal’s Joint Statistical Meetings will look anything like the above, I’m hoping at the least we can get those fancy blue bags.

At any rate, there are several talks that I want to attend at nearly every time block. Will I be able to be in two places at once? Here’s my current online program (which seems to be growing each day!)

A few quick notes:

1- My talk is during Monday’s 2:00 session (my start is officially at 3:25). Feel free to come by!

If you do, I will be the last speaker you hear before Nate Silver, who is headlining JSM 2013 later on Monday afternoon. So, in that way, I consider myself the final act before the headlining act, a joke I’ll surely work in during my introduction.

2- Brown University’s biostatistics department is well represented, with three current students (amazingly, that’s 25% of us), two former students, and seven faculty members. That’s the good news. The bad news is that several of us are speaking at the same time and won’t be able to make one another’s talks!  In case of dueling speakers, I’ll flip a coin.

3- Most of my focus is going to be within three sections of JSM, Health Policy & Statistics, Education, and the occasional Section on Statistics in Sports.

4- Are there any other talks I should be sure to go to? Let me know!
