"A picture can speak a thousand words" - graphics can be the best way to gain insight into a data set. The PSI (Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry, no I haven’t mis-spelt the abbreviation!) have organised a one day presentation and forum to discuss and share the thinking behind creating statistical graphics as well as the methodology, tools and processes involved.
Experts in the field of statistical graphics will share their experience and ideas with the audience which will then be presented with the results of a challenge: 5 software solutions 'gurus' were tasked with presenting real-life, but perhaps unusual data sets using the best graphics their software and personal experience can produce. Take a look at the flyer to see the detailed aganda for the day. You will see that the solutions incorporate a variety of software including SAS, Stata and R.
Register before November 20th and get a reduced rate.
The meeting will take place on Tuesday 8th December at the prestigious offices of The Design Council, 34 Bow Street, London, WC2E 7DL. To register, visit the PSI's Events page, find the Graphics event (the events are listed in chronological order), and follow the Registration link. After completing the quick but somewhat clunky PSI Non-Members Registration process (it's free), make sure you mention NOTE: in the "How did you hear about this Event?" field on the form
This promises to be an interesting and thought-provoking day.
