  LISA 2020 and Ut Prosim: Building statistics capacity in developing countries  
(Seminar/Conference)

On April 18th from 3:30-4:30 pm in 300 Seitz, Dr. Eric Vance, Director of LISA (Virginia Tech's Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis), will be presenting a colloquium in honor of the International Year of Statistics entitled "LISA 2020 and Ut Prosim: Building statistics capacity in developing countries."

Colloquium Abstract:

During this International Year of Statistics to increase the global impact of statistics, the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis (LISA) at Virginia Tech is partnering with universities and individuals around the world to create a network of 20 new statistical collaboration laboratories in developing countries by 2020. This plan is called "LISA 2020" and consists of four steps for each new laboratory.

Step 1: A technically trained statistician from a developing country comes to Virginia Tech to be educated and trained in LISA to communicate and collaborate with non-statisticians.

Step 2: This newly trained collaborative statistician returns to their home university to create a statistical collaboration laboratory based on their experience in LISA.

Step 3: Collaborative statisticians from Virginia Tech or elsewhere in the LISA 2020 network visit the new laboratory to help create, build, or sustain the lab and provide additional training in statistical methods and effective collaboration.

Step 4: Repeat steps 1 or 3 as necessary to maintain high quality in providing local researchers, government officials, the private sector, and NGOs with statistical advice and expertise from local statisticians who understand the contexts of the problems and are experts in providing real solutions to real-world problems.

LISA 2020 is seeking partners and support from within the Virginia Tech and statistical communities. This presentation will be an opportunity to learn about the program, become involved, and help shape its future.
