USPROC Winners, Next Submission Cycle, and Upcoming eUSR!

Hi everyone,

As co-chair of the USPROC organizing committee, I'm happy to announce the winners for the June 2017 submission cycle! We had two categories for the USCLAP (class projects) competiton (introductory and intermediate), and the winners for those can be found here: USCLAP winners. We also had a USRESP (research projects) competition category, with winners here: USRESP winners. Congratulations to all winners and their faculty mentors!

We are very excited to see the increased number of submissions to USPROC. As you teach your classes, and do research with students this semester (or this past summer), please consider having them submit their work for the upcoming deadline: Friday, December 22, 2017.  All winners receive cash prizes!  Learn more here: USPROC.

Competition tracks are available for all student levels. The purpose of USPROC is to encourage the development of data analysis skills, to enhance presentation skills, and to recognize outstanding work by undergraduate statistics students. There are two main categories for submission:

1. Undergraduate Statistics Class Project Competition (USCLAP): For students taking an applied statistics course at introductory, or intermediate, levels.
2. Undergraduate Statistics Research Project Competition (USRESP): For students who conduct research in, say, an REU, a capstone project, or an independent project.

Finally, please consider having your students submit an abstract for the 2017 Electronic Undergraduate Statistics Research Conference (eUSR). You can register too! This virtual conference will take place on Friday, November 3rd, 2017. It's free, and we have a great program, with a keynote address from a data scientist at Stack Overflow, a career panel including the Head of Data Science at Lyft, and other panels on graduate school and diversity in Statistics and Data Science. Further information, including the registration link can be found here: eUSR.

Best regards, the USPROC & eUSR Co-Chairs
