Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Department of Decision Sciences & MIS of Concordia University and Forum for Interdisciplinary Mathematics (FIM), will be hosting a joint conference, Statistics 2011 Canada: 5th Canadian Conference in Applied Statistics together with the 20th conference of the Forum for Interdisciplinary Mathematics titled, "Interdisciplinary Mathematical & Statistical Techniques" from July 1 to July 4, 2011.
In keeping with the long tradition of decennial conferences since 1971, this convention is dedicated to all areas of mathematical and statistical sciences. In addition to traditional theoretical/applied areas, interdisciplinary research would be encouraged and promoted. Historically these meetings have concentrated in the following areas of scholarship: applied and theoretical statistics, Bayesian statistics, bioinformatics, biostatistics, combinatorics, computer and information sciences, design of experiments, ergodic theory, functional analysis, graph theory, multivariate analysis, number theory, partial differential equations and topology.
The conference will feature contributed and invited paper sessions and poster presentations along with a special inaugurating lecture to honour Professor T. D. Dwivedi who had been a driving force behind the previous conferences in this series, sponsored by an endowment from Dwivedi family and the Faculty of Arts and Science, Concordia University.
