You’re cordially invited to 2014 ICSA and KISS Joint Applied Statistics Symposium in Portland, Oregon!

The Joint Applied Statistics Symposium will be held from Sunday, June 15 to Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront in Portland, Oregon. It will be a joint conference of International Chinese Statistical Association (ICSA) and the Korean International Statistical Society (KISS).  Please note the important dates below.  Please send any inquiry to icsa.kiss@gmail.com.
Portland has mild and dry weather. June will be a great time to visit as it is the month of Portland Rose Festival. Portland is located near the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia rivers and close to the famous Oregon high mountains and coast. Oregon is also famous for many micro-breweries and beautiful wineries. In addition, Oregon does not have sales tax and there are excellent outlet malls --- a combination for ideal shopping. The city of roses welcomes you in 2014! Details of this event are forthcoming on the symposium website.
