MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It was wonderful to see so many ISBIS members in Barcelona in June. I’ve written a longer report on the conference that appears later in this issue. But I am grateful to everyone who worked to make that meeting a success.
We have other wonderful meetings that are being planned now. First, we shall *not* be having a satellite meeting in conjunction with the World Statistics Congress in Marrakech, Morocco on July 16-21, 2017. Instead we shall have a non-satellite ISBIS meeting on June 7-9, 2017, at the IBM Watson Research Center in White Plains, New York, USA (a 35-minute train ride from Grand Central Station in New York City if you take the express). The organizers are Julie Novak (IBM), Stefa Etchegaray (IBM), Hongxia Yang (Yahoo!), Marian Farah (The Climate Corporation), and Angela Schoergendorfer (Google). The theme of the conference is Statistics in Business Analytics and there will soon be a website.
