ENAR in the wild

I’m sitting at Bradley International Airport waiting for a flight to Raleigh/Durham. Then I’ll hop on a connector to Memphis, followed by another connector to San Antonio, Texas. What’s in San Antonio, you might ask? The Alamo? Tim Duncan? Well yes, but why would I post that on a stats blog?

The reason I am headed to the Lone Star state is for the Eastern North American Region (ENAR) (pronounced EE-NAR) of the International Biometric Society (IBS). (IBS is an unfortunate acronym in itself, but I should note that the Western North American Region (WNAR) is pronounced WEE-NAR. That is unfortunate. I am also extremely childish.) I’ll be there from tonight until Monday afternoon, so I can attend a few talks in the morning before I leave.

On SUnday night from 8-11pu, I’m giving a poster presentation about synthetic data related to the paper I just published. It’s like a student poster bonanza. And they serve alcohol. So it should be interesting.

I’d love to post the abstracts to some of the talks I am interesting in attending, but Bradley’s internet connection is not letting me view the abstract page.

If Raleigh/Durham or Memphis has a better connection, I’ll post them when I get there.
