The CSSS seminar series is centered around intellectual exchange and interaction. The audience is encouraged to ask questions during presentations. Speakers will end their presentations after 1 hour in order to guarantee time for discussion. 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. Attendees are also strongly encouraged to bring their lunch.
