The 2011 Joint Statistical Meetings will be held in Miami, Florida, July 30 through August 4.

In order to present a special session on Statipedia, we need to do some planning.

Call for Invited Paper Sessions

The 2011 JSM will be held in Miami Beach, Florida, July 30 - August 4, at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

For proposed invited sessions, we need to provide

  1. title of session
  2. brief description of the session
  3. list of speakers (2 to 6 speakers and/or discussants)
  4. list of tentative talk titles

To propose an invited session:

  • Decide on a theme for it
  • Shop your theme around the people you know are active in the area
  • Write an abstract briefly saying why the theme is interesting and important, listing the proposed participants, and, if necessary, supporting the participants' qualifications to speak on the topic
  • Submit your paper to an ASA section for sponsorship

Proposed Session Name(s) & Description(s)

Please edit this section to suggest session name(s) and brief description(s).

Indicate which ASA Section Section should host the session. Should it be the Section on Government Statistics?
