The CSSS seminar series

The CSSS seminar series is centered around intellectual exchange and interaction, and the audience is encouraged to ask questions during presentations. The goal is a seminar that looks less like a lecture and more like a spirited discussion of issues raised in a relatively brief presentation of a statistical issue or a research project.

All seminars will be held at 12:30 on Wednesdays in Savery 409 unless otherwise noted, and we will aim to conclude by 1:30. Coffee and treats will be provided after the seminar; attendees are also welcome to bring their lunch.

To receive regular emails about the weekly CSSS Seminars, go to the website at http://mailman13.u.washington.edu/mailman/listinfo/csss-seminar and complete the information to subscribe to the csss-seminar mailing list. Your request will then be reviewed and processed.
