Welcome to KISS – Korean International Statistical Society!

Writing workshop for Junior Researchers at JSM 2019

The Korean International Statistical Society is again 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 28 (7:30 am – 3:30 pm) and Tuesday, July 30 (7:30 am – 10:30 am).  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. Workshop applicants are asked to register online, submit their writing sample, and if your submission is accepted, to confirm your interest in participation by paying the $100 registration fee.  Depending on the availability of funds, travel and housing costs will be partially reimbursed to those accepted. For further information about the workshop and instructions for applying, see the announcement.

Of last year’s 27 registrations, 4 KISS members participated and all gave the workshop favorable reviews. Since KISS is one of the co-sponsors for this year’s workshop again, we have been guaranteed at least 2 spots for KISS members, so we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity!
