JSM 2019

The annual Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM) is a key scientific conference for SAS, and this year in Denver is no exception. JSM is one of the largest statistical events in the world, bringing together thousands of attendees from more than 50 countries in academia, industry and government.

More than 50 SAS employees will be attending JSM, from R&D, Technical Support, Publications and Education, as well as a strong contingent from JMP. Below is a list of the many ways that SAS employees will be contributing directly to the scientific content of the JSM. To see more detail, visit the JSM 2019 online program.
