Check out What Happened at the 2019 Joint Statistical Meetings

Each year, the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM) bring together thousands (6,500 this year) of statisticians at what's the largest gathering of its type in the world. The JSM represent eleven international statistics organisations, including the four founding organisations - The American Statistical Association (ASA), The International Biometric Society, The Institute of Mathematical Statistical, and The Statistical Society of Canada.

As a member of the ASA since 1973 I've attended a few of these meetings over the years, but unfortunately I didn't make it to the JSM in Denver at the end of last month. As always, the program was amazing.

Yesterday, the ASA released a searchable version of the 2019 program that contains downloadable files of the slides used by many of the speakers. You can find that version of the program here. When you go through the program, look for presentations that have blue (rectangular) "Presentation" button. Papers in sessions sponsored by the Business and Economic Statistics section of the ASA may be of special interest to you - but there's lots to choose from!
