The Michigan State University Statistics in Applications Symposium will showcase
applications in high throughput data technologies, engineering, health sciences
research, and biological sciences where statistical science plays an important role.
The goal of this symposium is to create an environment that allows communication
across related fields of statistical sciences and promote interdisciplinary research
among graduate students and faculty. It encourages graduate students to present
their work, share insights and exposes them to diverse applications of statistics.
Presentations (poster or oral) on research with statistical applications are invited.

Catastrophe Modeling: How It’s Evolved and Where It’s Going
Catastrophe models have been used by the insurance industry for the past two decades and they have evolved significantly over that time period. Even though they incorporate scientific theory and engineering expertise,
the models are statistical in nature and utilize many of the techniques applied in standard actuarial analysis. Recent innovations in the catastrophe risk management space promise to revolutionize the field over the next few years.
