Explorations in Statistics Research: An Undergraduate Summer Program

The seven-day workshop will take place June 12-18 at Columbia University in New York City and is designed to help students get a sense of how statisticians approach large, complex problems. Several topics will be presented over the course of the week, including the following:

* Text and document analysis
* Environmental statistics
* Earth and space science

The short program is designed to encourage students to attend graduate school in statistics. It is aimed at undergraduates who are rising juniors or seniors.

Applications are due March 9, 2011. To apply or get more information, visit the Explorations in Statistics Research website.
