    • Priority will be given to the applicants who are from under-represented communities in statistics, data-science, or related fields.

Poster Submission

All graduate students who currently study statistics and data science and participate in 2022 summer intern programs in Pharmaceutical/biotech industries, regulatory agencies and health organizations are encouraged to submit posters based on their summer intern projects. In addition, students who participate in the 2022 summer boot camp for biostatistics and data science offered by the University of Connecticut are encouraged to submit posters based on their course projects. This is an excellent opportunity to practice presenting your scientific results to others in a logical and concise manner. This is also a great opportunity to meet scientific peers of your age as well as more senior colleagues and interact with and learn from all of them. The competition process will select posters for speed presentations, and the intern posters may be invited for paper submission.

Poster should be a PDF file with a 16:9 aspect ratio. If you use PowerPoint to create your PDF, simply select the widescreen 16:9 slide size. If you will be presenting your poster in person, your poster must be smaller than 44” tall by 66” wide to fit the designated board. Here is a poster template.

The evaluation will separate interns and summer students. The SIP 2022 poster committee will grade the posters based on merits in contents, such as creativity and clarity.

The submission deadline is August 16th, 2022.

Presentation Skill Training

Training the next generation of statisticians and data scientists is not limited to training them in statistical methodologies and technical skills alone. At SIP 2022, we are proud to announce that Dr. Steven Gilbert from Pfizer will present a training session on presentation skills. The focus will be on how to effectively communicate scientific ideas and messages in a clear and concise manner in either a poster or an oral presentation. Any successful presentation must start with an understanding of the audience. The presentation is then developed by using a style that the audience can comprehend, including the proper level of technical details to exhibit your depth of knowledge without making your audiences lose attention, and tailoring the scope of the presentation to fit in the allocated timeframe. Tips on how to prepare the presentation material and practice the delivery of the presentation will be provided.
