Professor Dave Woods has been announced as Programme Chair for the RSS 2020 International Conference which will take place in Bournemouth from 7-10 September 2020.
Dave is head of statistics in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton and deputy director of the Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute. He is also a Turing Fellow at the Turing Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. His research interests focus on the design and analysis of both physical and computer experiments, Bayesian methods, and the application of statistics to science and technology. Much of his work is interdisciplinary and involves collaborations with researchers from other disciplines, and with government and industry.
Dave commented, 'I’m honoured to have been asked by the Society to be the programme chair for the 2020 Annual Conference. The RSS Conference is always a great event which brings together an exciting mix of academic and professional statisticians and data scientists. I’m looking forward to working with the committee and membership to make the 2020 meeting a success!'
Further information about planning the programme for the RSS 2020 Conference will become available over the summer.
