The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is pleased to host a one day conference on Probability and Statistics on Saturday, April 28, 2007. This will be a full day event with Keynote addresses by two prominent statisticians. Plenary sessions, contributed sessions, and oral and poster presentations by graduate students are also planned.

The main goal of this special day is to promote scientific awareness in general and discuss contemporary probabilistic and statistical issues in particular. The conference is open to all local university faculty/grad students as well as to statisticians employed in the government agencies and private industries. Our experience has shown that this kind of one day event provides an ideal forum for exchange of novel ideas among the attendees, and benefits all those who attend and actively participate.

For information, please contact the conference chair:
Dr. Bimal K. Sinha, sinha@umbc.edu, 410-455-2347.
