Modern Statistical Computing and Graphics in Academia
June 13, 2001
Costa Mesa, California

Statistical computing and graphics are important areas both for our discipline and others, but they seldom receive sufficient attention or focus in academic circles. While many benefit, there are few people actively working in statistical computing, and even fewer contributing fundamental results in statistical graphics. Through this one-day workshop, we hope to identify the practical steps we can take to promote and sustain these areas of research.

Three general topics will be discussed:

  • Evaluating and rewarding research in statistical computing and graphics;

  • Promoting inter-disciplinary collaboration and exchange of research; and

  • Teaching statistical computing and graphics, including curriculum content and development, and increasing the number of students involved in statistical computing and graphics
To help focus discussion, we have outlined several issues related to each of these topics.
