JRC 2014 Call For Papers

This year, the Spring Research Conference is hosted alongside the Joint Research Conference! Specifically, the ASA Q&P and SPES Joint Research Conference will be held this June 24 - 26, 2014 at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. In 2014, the ASA Q&P Section's Quality and Productivity Research Conference will combine with the ASA SPES Section's Spring Research Conference to create a Joint Research Conference (JRC) with the theme Statistics and Quality in a Data Rich World. The goal of the conference is to stimulate interdisciplinary research among statisticians, scientists, and engineers in quality and productivity, industrial needs, and the physical and engineering sciences. Statistical issues and research approaches drawn from collaborative research will be highlighted.

The conference will honor Douglas Hawkins from the University of Minnesota. Conference registration includes a tour and reception at the Future of Flight Aviation Center, and a Tour of Boeing's Commercial Jet Assembly Plant in Everett, Washington (the world's largest building). For a small additional registration fee, a short course on Bayesian Statistical Process Control by Panagiotis Tsiamyrtzis will be offered before the conference on June 23, 2014.
