Peter Hoff has accepted the CSSS position that is 100% in Statistics, and he will be joining us next year as Assistant Professor of Statistics. Please welcome Peter to the University. We hope that that all CSSS faculty will take advantage of this opportunity to engage a gifted statistician intellectually. Peter's email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
CSSS has now made 3 offers on designated CSSS lines (Mark Handcock in Statistics and Sociology, Kevin Quinn in Political Science, and now Peter Hoff in Statistics), and all three have been accepted. Martina Morris's position in Sociology and Statistics will also be closely linked to the development of CSSS.
First Northwest Probability Seminar:
University of Washington
The scientific program will consist of two talks. Both talks will take place in Smith 105.
The gathering place for the participants will be the Mathematics Lounge on the first floor of Padelford Hall. It will be open starting 12:00 (the parking on UW campus is free after 12:00 on Saturdays). We expect to have some bagels. The lounge may be used during the break from 2.30-3.30 for informal discussions, refreshments, etc.
A dinner will follow the seminar. Since some participants live at a considerable distance from Seattle, we propose an early dinner, around 5:00.
