The Statistical Society of Australia (Western Australian Branch) is inviting all Young Statisticians (students and those within 5 years of graduating, excluding career interruptions) to present their work at the Young Statisticians Workshop 2020, to be held over two half-days on 30th September and 1st October 2020. This year’s Workshop will be held online with Zoom. As such, this opens up the opportunity to present a dynamic-online presentation as well as oral presentations.
Young Statistician Oral Presentations should be given in a topic involving statistics and will be given 12 minutes talking time plus 3 minutes for questions. Oral Presentations will be limited. Presentations will be decided on the quality of the abstract and relevance to statistics.
Young Statistician Web Poster Presentations replaces the typical poster-format seen at many conferences. Presenters will be able to present their work in a web-accessible format that can be appreciated in 5 minutes.

Separate prizes will be available for web poster presenters.
