Kansas State University Department of Statistics

This conference is hosted and organized by the Kansas State University Department of Statistics.

The success of Statistics at Kansas State is directly linked to its collaboration with interdisciplinary scientists, faculty, staff, graduate students, and alumni. The discipline of statistics has been changing rapidly, particularly within the last ten years, where the imaginative use of computing power and computational environments have driven much of the current theoretical and applied research. Maintaining successful and active collaboration has required the faculty to aggressively incorporate the trends of modern statistics in all aspects of their careers. The outcome is a nationally distinguished faculty and degree program.
