SOSGSSD 2011 at The University of Western Ontario

The Southern Ontario Statistics Graduate Students Seminar Days (SOSGSSD), is being hosted this year at The University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada.

This year we are extending invitations to students from across Canada, not just from Southern Ontario.

The date is May 18-22, 2011. The 5-day week will be divided into two independent components: a 2-day graduate seminar followed by a 3-day summer school. Feel free to attend either or both.

There is no registration fee and accomodations will be provided. Deadline to register is March 31, 2011.

GEOIDE is hosting the 2011 Annual Scientific Conference in Toronto from May 16-17, 2011. This conference is an opportunity for academics, industry and policy makers to present their research and exchange ideas regarding the future of geomatics.

GEOIDE is also hosting a summer school in Toronto in parallel with the SOSGSSD summer school. The themes of the GEOIDE Summer School are Geomatics and Temporality, Risk Analysis and Management, and Visualization of Space.

Seminar Days

Date: May 18-19, 2011

The seminar days are an excellent opportunity for graduate students to both give and listen to seminars given by other graduate students. This provides an encouraging environment to share your research and practice your presentation skills, as well as to meet other statistics graduate students across Canada.

Registration for the seminar days is now closed.

See the seminar days page for more details.

3-Day Summer School

Date: May 20-22, 2011

The summer workshop is a three day intensive workshop on spatial statistics taught by Patrick Brown from Cancer Care Ontario and Virgilio Gomez-Rubio from the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain.

The material will be suitable for students with all levels of background in spatial statistics. Half the time will be spent in lecture and the other half with hands-on computer labs.

The summer school is now full and registration has closed.

See the summer school page for more details and required background.
