Dear SSA members and all those interested,
A group of us from different institutions (Boris Beranger - UNSW; Hassan Doosti - MQ; Thomas Fung - MQ & SSA NSW; Munir Hiabu - USyd; Francis Hui - ANU & SSA Canberra; Pauline O’Shaughnessy - UoW; Jake Olivier - UNSW & SSA NSW; Matias Quiroz - UTS) have gotten together to launch an initiative called Statistics Across Campuses (SAC).
SAC is an across campus initiative designed to provide a weekly dose of new and interesting statistic research from domestic and international researchers in this current time. Put simply, we are pulling our resources together to offer (departmental-seminar-like) seminars for the wider statistics and data science community. This includes SSA members, who are more than welcome to attend these seminars.
A list of past and upcoming seminars can be found at https://ssaassl.blogspot.com, with details about the talks and how to access them. You can also subscribe to the blog in order to be kept in the loop for new posts/seminars. We will do our best to provide slides and video recordings for those who cannot make it (or for those who wish to watch it again!). The blog also offers the possibility to submit speaker suggestions.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org, or indeed any of those listed above, if you have any questions or want to be involved, including if your statistics department is interested in contributing/being a part of SAC.
