The main objective of the conference is to promote interdisciplinary research involving statistical techniques. These techniques are becoming increasingly important in all fields of scientific discovery. A unique feature of the proposed conference is that we plan to bring together nationally and internationally recognized researchers from many fields including anthropology, biology, economics, education, environmental science, information systems, insurance, mathematics, medicine, psychology, and public health. The common thread will be statistical methods used in their respective research programs.
Another important objective of the conference is to groom young researchers by providing them an opportunity to interact with established researchers in their respective fields.
At the local level, the conference will provide an opportunity to NC researchers to interact with other researchers from all over the world.
