On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to attend the ISS 40th Anniversary Conference to be held at Academia Sinica during Dec 15 – 16, 2022. This two-day conference will cover the anniversary celebration of Institute of Statistical Science, Academia Sinica (ISSAS) and activities in memory of Academician Yuan-Shih Chow

ISSAS will celebrate its 40th anniversary and look into the future. The Preparatory Office of ISSAS was founded on July 1, 1982. ISSAS was officially established on August 3, 1987. Over the past 40 years, ISSAS has become a world-class statistical institute and forged ahead for a sustainable future.

Academician Yuan-Shih Chow (with Academicians George C. Tiao and Ching Chun Li) led a group of 21 academicians to draft a resolution calling for the establishment of ISSAS in July 1980. Academician Chow is known for his academic contributions to the theories of martingale, stopping rule, and sequential analysis. Academician Chow passed away on Mar 3, 2022.

We cordially welcome your visit to ISSAS and your participation at the conference.
