About the BISS

The Business and Industrial Statistics Section was created at the 2000 annual meeting of the SSC, it has about 120 members. The overall objective of the section is to focus on the interests of members working in business and industrial areas. The section will therefore organize invited and contributed paper sessions at the SSC Annual Meetings as well as pre-conference short courses and workshops. The section also aims to promote the involvement of academic statisticians and students in the solution of practical problems in business and industry.

By becoming a member of the section, you help to promote business and industrial statistics within the SSC, which leads to more business and industrial oriented talks, workshops and other events. To join BISS, join the SSC and check the Business and Industrial Section box on the registration form.
