Every year, CANSSI organizes an event to highlight the work being done by CANSSI-supported researchers and other members of the statistical sciences community, with an emphasis on the activities of students, postdocs, and early-career researchers. It’s a wonderful opportunity to connect with statistical scientists from across Canada and to gain an understanding of the research taking place from coast to coast.
CANSSI Showcase 2023 will take place online on Friday, November 17, 2023, and will feature four short talks and 16 lightning talks on a wide range of topics. In addition, there will be a panel discussion on “The Role of Statistics for Public Good and Good Governance” with panellists Josée Bégin (Statistics Canada), F. Jay Breidt (NORC at the University of Chicago), Dave Campbell (Carleton University, Bank of Canada), and Sallie Ann Keller (U.S. Census Bureau).
Sallie Ann Keller, who is chief scientist and associate director of the U.S. Census Bureau’s Research and Methodology Directorate and holds an endowed distinguished professorship in biocomplexity at the University of Virginia (UVA), will also present a keynote lecture on “Evolving a Data Enterprise to Support Relevant, Timely, and Equitable Statistical Products,” drawing on her experience at the U.S. Census Bureau.
As an added bonus, this year’s event will include an announcement of the winners in CANSSI’s first-ever What Do You Meme? contest.
