Major statistics and biostatistics departments in the Midwest are sponsoring the fourth Midwest Statistics Research Colloquium. The first three colloquia were held in the spring of 2008, 2009 and 2010 at the University of Chicago. As with these colloquia, the program for the fourth colloquium will be inclusive, recognizing the importance of first-rate theoretical work, computational work, and serious applied work.
We are holding this colloquium to give visibility to quality research by students and faculty at all levels in some seventy departments in the Midwest and also to give everyone a chance to form new friendships, new collaborations, and obtain new ideas without having to travel a significant distance. We also want participants to enjoy a day of relaxation in a scholarly environment.
The fourth colloquium will be held at the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison on March 18 and 19, 2011. Online registration is mandatory for all participants. Registration will be capped at approximately 100 attendees.

The Department is in the old hospital complex at 1300 University Avenue, about 1 mile west of the Capitol and five blocks west of the Lowell Center where most participants will likely stay (the campus map, linked to all buildings and campus units, can help get you oriented). This complex includes the Medical Sciences Center (MSC, where department offices are found), Bardeen Medical Laboratories (seminar site) and the Service Memorial Institute (SMI), which will be used for breaks and poster sessions. [We will make special arrangements to get people in the building on Saturday.]
