SPAIG Speaker List

As one of its initiatives, SPAIG (Statistics Partnerships among Academe, Industry and Government) has created this web site which contains a list of faculty members at academic institutions who are willing to present either seminars or shortcourses for industry or government employees and a list of industry/government statisticians willing to give talks at academic institutions. These lists are created to promote interaction between academic statisticians and their colleagues in industry and government, to encourage continuing education opportunities for government and industrial statisticians, to provide speakers who might promote the use of statistical expertise and methods in industrial and government settings and to provide students and faculty with insights into the uses of statistics and employment opportunities in industry and government. Seminars are at a variety of technical levels, and are requested to address practical statistical issues of interest to the audience.

The list are self subscribed and there are instructions available for persons wishing to be listed. No effort will be made to screen it by SPAIG. The presenter is solely responsible for the content and style of presentation. The presence of a person's name on the list does not imply the endorsement of SPAIG.
