Online conference for young statistics researchers

Inspired by the Future of Statistical Sciences Workshop (an official event which will be full of middle-aged guys talking about the future), Jeff Leek and Roger Peng have organized a mini-conference in the form of a Google hangout featuring a bunch of youngsters. Seems like a good idea to me! Their particular focus will be on “education, new methods, software development, collaborations with natural sciences/social sciences, and the relationship between statistics and industry.” Their “unconference” will be noon on 30 Oct; you can follow the link to get the details.
