We have made the decision to conduct the Conference on Applied Statistics in Agriculture and Natural Resources virtually due to the Coronavirus. Like you, we wish we could meet in person, the camaraderie and in-person interactions that we all enjoy so much will be missed. But considering these unique times, we hope you will be supportive of the virtual program, remain flexible and understanding, and work with us as we strive to make this 2021 conference the best it can be. Working together, we will make this 2021 Conference on Applied Statistics successful and will continue to advance the application of statistics to solve agricultural and biological problems.
The Conference on Applied Statistics in Agriculture and Natural Resources brings together statisticians and researchers from academia, industry and government to discuss ideas and advancements in the application of statistics to solve agricultural and biological problems. This is a three-day conference consisting of a keynote speaker, a workshop and a series of contributed papers and poster presentations.
This conference is unique in its interdisciplinary nature and also exposes students and developing scholars to new statistical research directly relevant to agriculture. We emphasize the application of statistics in solving real-life problems while highlighting agriculture and recognizing the joint effort of the statistician and the agricultural researcher. The relaxed atmosphere of this conference allows for participants to submit abstracts made jointly by the statistician and the researcher. Presentation of data sets and analyses which motivated the work shares equal importance with development of the statistical theory. Papers on either new or innovative applications of existing statistical methodologies are appropriate for presentation at this conference.
