The 2014 ISBA-George Box Research Workshop on Frontiers of Statistics

May 21-22, 2014

The George Washington University, DC

This 2-day ISBA meeting will feature presentations and discussions of topical, frontier research in the methodology and applications of Bayesian statistics, and related areas. The focus areas are among those pioneered by George Box through his career as a path-breaking innovator in concepts, theory, methods and applications across a broad sweep of areas. The workshop is an opportunity to participate in reflecting on Box's legacy, coupled with the vibrancy of our discipline-- especially in its interfaces with challenging areas of application. Though the subfields represented are established and mature in many respects, they still represent key and challenging research arenas for modern, stochastic model-based and computationally oriented research statisticians in academia, business and industrial environments. Hence the interest in highlighting these areas at a 2014 research frontier conference, to exchange ideas and advances, and to identify and confront key areas raising challenges to statistical science and Bayesian methodology and so define new research directions.

This meeting is co-organized and sponsored by the ISBA Section on Industrial Statistics, the ISBA Section on Economics, Finance & Business, the ISBA Section on Objective Bayes and the ISBA Program Council.

The meeting is also generously supported by the Institute for Integrating Statistics in Decision Sciences at The George Washington University School of Business.
