Joint Statistical Meeting 2018

The JSM, sponsored by several North American societies, is the world's largest annual gathering of statisticians and data scientists. The Amer Stat Assn's Special Interest Group in Astrostatistics & others have organized three sessions on astrostatistics for Monday July 30: 'New Innovations and Challenges in Astrostatisitcs', 'Hierarchical Bayes in a Hierarchical Universe', and a `Contributed Papers' session. Details below.
