Welcome to KISS – Korean International Statistical Society!
Writing workshop for Junior Researchers at JSM 2018
We are co-sponsoring a writing workshop for junior researchers organized by the National Institute of Statistical Sciences that will be held at JSM on Sunday, July 29th (7:30am – 3:30pm) and Tuesday, July 31 (7:30am – 10:30am). The Tuesday session focuses on the specific issues for participants whose native language is not English, covering writing process and details of grammar, sentence structure and word choice. Further information about the workshop and instructions for applying are available elsewhere.
There is a $100 registration fee, but this is mainly to confirm interest. The fee will be reimbursed for those who are not accepted. Those who are accepted will receive partial funding from NISS (average amount was $500 in prior years) to attend the workshop which can be used to cover the registration fee and offset the costs of travel and housing. About 30 participants will be selected to participate in the workshop. Since KISS is one of the co-sponsors, we have been guaranteed at least 2 spots for KISS members, so we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity!
