PSI One Day Meeting: New Starters SIG
- Date: 28th March 2019
- Location: IQVIA, 500 Brook Drive, Reading, RG2 6UU
This is the inaugural meeting of the recently relaunched New Starters Special Interest Group. The aim of this meeting is to provide a relaxed environment for early career statisticians to network and interact with their peers across the industry. We will
provide a program of informal talks alongside breakout and ice-breaker sessions in order to facilitate discussion amongst attendees. For this one-day meeting the audience will be peers with similar levels of experience and sessions will include content
of interest to statisticians early in their careers. In addition to presentations from fellow statisticians there will be a workshop on estimands and ample opportunity to connect with colleagues across the industry.
interested in presenting at this event, please send a brief description of your proposed presentation to Sam Hadlington by 8th February 2019. As we are currently building
a New Starters’ SIG Mailing list for updates on future events, please confirm in your reply whether or not you would like to be added to this list and receive information about future events.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How detailed will the description of our proposed presentations need to be if we are interested in presenting?
A short paragraph – 100-200 words – detailing the topic you are interested in presenting on plus up to 5 keywords
2. How many presentations are you looking to accept?
will depend on the total number of submissions received, but we expect approximately 10+
3. Are there any topics you are interested in hearing about?
At this stage, not specifically. We are hoping to shape the program of the day around the topics received. Some examples of soft/careers-based talks could be on a recent promotion you went for, or an interesting secondment you went on. You could also
discuss aspects of your everyday experience at your current workplace. For example, what your office or corporate culture is like, what a typical day looks like, and how you have found settling in. If you’d prefer to present on a more technical
area instead, some examples could include a new statistical method you’ve recently learned, or an interesting article you have read.
