The 7th Annual Canadian Statistics Student Conference (CSSC) will take place on Saturday, May 25th, 2019 at the University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, the day before the Statistical Society of Canada 2019 Annual Meeting opens.

This conference is all about engaging students through research presentations, statistical skill development workshops and talks, and an interactive career session with invited statisticians from different professional areas.

On this year’s program, we are pleased to announce a keynote address on interdisciplinary work and successful leadership in the statistical field, given by Professor Charmaine Dean, the vice president for research at the University of Waterloo. Dr Dean is the winner of the 2003 CRM-SSC Award for her outstanding contributions to the statistical sciences and her exemplary dedication to the profession, in Canada and abroad. In addition to the student scientific program, a career panel with speakers from government, industry and academia will be held, as well as a skills session on the breach between statistics and data mining. We are also holding a fully interactive workshop on managing big data. Detailed conference information will be shared on the SSC website.

Several prizes will be awarded, including:

   - Undergraduate Poster Competition Awards
   - Best Posters of the SSC Student Conference Awards
   - Best Papers of the SSC Student Conference Awards

Mentors: This is a great opportunity to introduce or encourage conference participation and to enhance your students’ skills in presenting their research. You are also invited to register and support them!

Registration opened in January (http//ssc.ca/en/meeting/seventh-annual-canadian-statistics-student-conference) and is open to students, recent graduates, faculty, and other members of the statistics community.
