Each year at JSM NISS Affiliates gather together for a luncheon. The highly anticipated NISS Affiliate Luncheon at JSM 2023 will take place on August 6th from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM. This exclusive event will bring together esteemed statisticians, researchers, and professionals in a relaxed and interactive setting. 

During this luncheon, participants will have the opportunity to network with fellow affiliates and discuss cutting-edge statistical methodologies, research findings, and industry trends. It's the perfect occasion to foster collaborations, exchange ideas, and expand your professional network. This year, we will focus on activities in which our affiliates are involved, particularly those that highlight the cross-disciplinary nature of the challenges or the benefits derived from the synergy of statisticians from industry, government institutions, and academia.

The NISS Affiliate Luncheon will feature a delectable buffet with a diverse range of culinary delights, including vegetarian and vegan options. As you savor the delicious food, engage in vibrant conversations with fellow attendees and explore potential synergies and partnerships.

Additionally, the event will include a captivating presentation by our research associates at NASS who will share their expertise and insights on the latest advancements in the field. Their talks will inspire and challenge you to push the boundaries of statistical science, encouraging innovative approaches to problem-solving and data analysis.

After the presentation, we will announce the NISS Annual Awards which will recognize recipients of the prestigious Jerome Sacks Award for Outstanding Cross-Disciplinary Research, the NISS Distinguished Alumni Award, and the NISS Distinguished Service Award.

Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to connect with influential statisticians, exchange knowledge, and contribute to the vibrant statistical community. Mark your calendars for the NISS Affiliate Luncheon on August 6th, from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM, and prepare for an enriching and enjoyable experience.
