Georgia Statistics Day is a one-day conference on theoretical and applied data science with the goal of promoting interdisciplinary research within the flagship institutions of the state of Georgia. This annual conference aims to enable junior researchers in the Southeast region of the United States, including graduate students, to present their work, to be exposed to the state-of-art developments in research on statistics, big data, and related scientific areas, and to interact with some of the key players in the area. Georgia Statistics Day puts emphasis on mentoring of junior researchers and on the interaction between senior and junior researchers.
The mission statement that was adopted before the inaugural GSD2015 meeting reads as follows:
The purpose of the Georgia Statistics Day series of conferences is to nurture and encourage junior researchers in the field, and to stimulate research in topics of practical relevance to science and industry. The conferences focus on new directions of research in statistical theory and applications. Ample time is scheduled for poster sessions and informal discussion. A comfortable setting is provided for the free exchange of ideas. Through this conference series senior researchers will provide leadership, inspiration and direction to junior researchers.
