The Division of Biostatistics at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (DLSPH) is pleased to host the "SORA-BN-TABA Workshop and the DLSPH Biostatistics Research Day" (W-BRD) on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013. The event is intended to bring together the regional and local statistical communities who are interested in biostatistics and other applied areas of statistics, and represents a joint effort between DLSPH and the following organizations:

SORA (The Southern Ontario Regional Association of SSC & The Southern Ontario Chapter of the ASA),
BN (The Buffalo-Niagara Chapter of the ASA), and
TABA (The Applied Biostatistics Association).

The W-BRD will center around an ASA Traveling Course by Dr. Dick De Veaux entitled "Successful Data Mining in Practice". This workshop represents a continuation of the joint annual workshops held by SORA and TABA. In addition, the W-BRD will include poster presentations by participants; students and post-docs are particularly encouraged to present their research or practicum work, and three poster awards will be given at the closing ceremony.

Coinciding with the International Year of Statistics, this year's W-BRD marks the first major cross-border initiative between SORA, TABA, and BN, with the aim of connecting statisticians from across Southern Ontario and the Buffalo-Niagara region. The organizing committee would also like to sincerely thank the ASA for letting us host one of their prestigious Traveling Courses, a first for the Southern Ontario region.

Please join us in making this SORA-BN-TABA-DLSPH joint event a great success!
