Guidelines for Workshop and Conference Proposals

> français

The Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute (CANSSI) invites proposals for international workshops or conferences in emerging areas of the statistical sciences.  These proposals are due three times a year, in mid-February, mid-June and mid-September.  Please send your proposal to  The conferences or workshops may be held in Canada, at the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), the Fields Institute, the Centre de recherches mathématiques, a Canadian university, or another Canadian institution, hotel or conference centre.

CANSSI will judge the submission on the importance of the area, the likely impact of the event on research in the statistical sciences in Canada, and the potential of the event for fostering cross-disciplinary collaboration.  Proposals will normally be sent to two or more reviewers.  Proposals requesting up to $20,000 of CANSSI funding will be evaluated by the CANSSI Directorate, while those requesting more than $20,000 of CANSSI  funding will be evaluated by the CANSSI Scientific Advisory Committee.

Typical requests from CANSSI are from $5,000 to $20,000 depending on the venue and the length of the event.  Preference is given to requests for support of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and invited speakers who do not have their own source of funding.
