ASA Section on Statistics in Genomics and Genetics (SSGG) call for Topic-Contributed Session Proposals. We support your submission!! The theme for JSM 2022 is “Statistics: A Foundation for Innovation,” but not all sessions have to adhere to this theme. Topic-contributed sessions include papers, panels, and posters:
- Topic-contributed paper sessions consist of five speakers, made up of at least three presenters and, at most, two discussants; each speaker has 20 minutes to present.
- Topic-contributed panels consist of three to six members providing commentary or a point of view on the panel topic.
- Topic-contributed poster sessions have 10–15 participants with posters addressing a common topic.
A topic-contributed session proposal includes a session title, general description of the session, list of participants, and tentative talk titles. To propose a topic-contributed session:
- Develop your idea and a list of speakers who agree to present on a common topic.
- Submit your idea online from November 11 to December 9, 2021.
- Await approval from a member of the JSM Program Committee.
- Ensure all speakers submit individual abstracts by February 1, 2022, using the six-digit session ID. Note: All speakers will be required to register for JSM prior to abstract submission.
- Talk to potential authors early, as no participant can serve as a presenting author in more than one session.
We are supporting proposals broadly related to statistical genomics and genetics, computational biology, and relevant topics. To submit a session proposal to be considered for 2022 JSM, please read the instructions and guidelines at https://ww2.amstat.org/meetings/jsm/2022/. Be sure to check the SSGG as your first choice of sponsor. Submissions are open Nov 11 to Dec 9, 2021.
We hope to see you in Washington, DC in the year 2022!
