Request for Expressions of Interest – Hosting CANSSI
We are inviting institutions from across the country to submit expressions of interest in becoming the host institution for CANSSI. Becoming the host institution provides an opportunity to build and shape statistical sciences across the country, across the host institution’s province, and within the local community. See here for more information.
We recently asked for comments regarding a discussion document outlining some options for the future of CANSSI. If you haven’t already commented, you’re still welcome to do so. The discussion document is available online.

Survey on CIHR Experience of Statistical and Data Scientists
A message from the CANSSI Health Sciences Committee and the SSC Research Committee:
If you are a CIHR-eligible researcher in the statistical or data sciences whose research is motivated by or applicable to problems in the health sciences, you are invited to fill out this very short questionnaire. This will help us learn about the CIHR research application experiences of statisticians and data scientists. Your responses will be anonymous, and the results of the survey will be made known only in aggregate form. The questionnaire will be open until December 23, 2016.
- Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis Workshop at the University of Calgary, December 3, 2016 (online registration is open)
Industrial Problem Solving Workshops
The purpose of CANSSI is to advance research in the statistical sciences in Canada by attracting new researchers to the field, increasing the points of contact among researchers nationally and internationally, and developing scientific collaborations with other disciplines and organizations.
