CAUSE is seeking pre-proposals from groups interested in co-hosting a regional conference or workshop that builds the local statistics education community and integrates with eCOTS and its theme of "Changing with Technology" (happening the week of May 16-20, 2016). Regional conferences can have a variety of formats (single day or multi-day; multi-day occurring at a single location or at changing locations; etc...). Facilities should be able to provide a means for connecting participants to eCOTS at relevant times. CAUSE will provide some funding and help with logistics for each regional conference. Please contact Dennis Pearl (dkp13(a)psu.edu) before October 1 to discuss initial plans and possibilities. Final proposals of no more than one page will be due at the end of October.
