Kathleen O’Sullivan (President of the Irish Statistical Association (ISA), School of Mathematical Sciences, University College Cork) launched the Young Statisticians’ Section of the ISA, the Young-ISA, on Friday October 04, 2019, in the Glen Royal Hotel, Maynooth, Co. Kildare.
The ISA formed its Young-ISA to provide a forum for career-young statisticians, that is, statisticians in the early stages of their careers, across Ireland. This is an exciting initiative by the ISA to encourage and nurture career-young statisticians.
This inaugural meeting, organised by the Young-ISA Section, showcased the breadth of research undertaken by career-young statisticians in Ireland. I would like to specially thank the keynote speakers, Drs Norma Bargary (University of Limerick) and Aidan Boland (Edge by Ascential) for providing insights into their career paths from academia and industry, and to all those who contributed talks and participated in the round table discussion.Read more
