JSM 2020 Is Going Virtual!

After considering the options available for holding the Joint Statistical Meetings this year and given we know so little about what the COVID-19 pandemic will look like in August, the ASA has determined the best decision is to hold JSM virtually. More information about this will be available in the coming weeks, and we appreciate your patience as we finalize details.

What does this mean for you?

  • First and foremost, JSM 2020 has not been cancelled. Information about how to access the wide variety of sessions and networking options will be communicated as soon as it is available.
  • If you have been accepted onto the program, we hope you will still choose to participate. We will be in touch with details about how to do that within the coming weeks.
  • If you registered when you submitted an abstract and no longer wish to participate, we will reach out to you soon with information about how to request a refund.

The ASA staff and JSM program committee will be working hard to transition the JSM to a virtual event and appreciate your support during this time. Should you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to send an email to meetings@amstat.org.

JSM Is ... One of the Largest Statistical Events in the World

More than 6,500 attendees from 52 countries
600+ sessions, including invited, topic-contributed, contributed, and poster
More than 1,000 student attendees
75+ employers hiring for more than 200 positions
100+ exhibitors
More than 40 Professional Development short courses and workshops

It is also one of the broadest, with topics ranging from statistical applications to methodology and theory to the expanding boundaries of statistics, such as analytics and data science.

JSM also offers a unique opportunity for statisticians in academia, industry, and government to exchange ideas and explore opportunities for collaboration. Beginning statisticians (including students) can learn from and interact with senior members of the profession.
