South Australia

The South Australian Branch of the Statistical Society holds regular meetings on a Wednesday of each month. At each meeting an invited local or visiting professional presents a one hour seminar on a statistical topic. Meetings are held at 5:30pm for 6pm, with refreshments provided prior to the talk. Visitors are most welcome. After the talk, all are welcome to adjourn with the speaker to a nearby restaurant.

The branch inaugurated a series of public lectures in 2001 on statistical topics of broad interest. This lecture series has been named after E.A. Cornish who was a leading figure in the early years of the statistical profession in Adelaide. More details about this lecture series are found under our Cornish Lectures section.

Young Statistician social activities are organized in Adelaide throughout the year to provide a supportive network for statistical undergraduate students and those who have been working in the profession for 5 years or less. The Young Statistician events are a great way for those new to the statistical profession to meet like-minded individuals.
