An Update from your International Program Chair

Dear IBS members,

In view of several request, we decided to postpone to 04 March 2019 the deadline for submitting Invited Session proposals for IBC2020 in Seoul, Korea. This conference is being prepared with great care by our local organizing committee, led by Tae Rim Lee and Taesung Park, and you can expect a superb venue and organization. Take a look at these videos to get an idea of what we’re talking about:

I want to invite all of you to join us in the next IBC by sending Invited Session proposals or submitting contributed papers at a later date. Statistics is living a unique moment. The explosion of available data and the consequent demand for its analysis has created an immense opportunity for all of us. We hope that the Scientific Program will reflect the immense changes our field of research is experiencing. We are looking forward to receiving proposals in varied topics, not only the most traditional ones. If you have innovations in data munging/wrangling, in data visualization, in ethical procedures associated with statistical analysis, or any of the many other issues that have emerged in last years, do not be shy!

Send us an Invited Session proposal or as a contributed paper. Help us make IBC2020 a landmark conference. 

Renato Assunção

International Program Committee, Chair
