SFU to host Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute

Through a national, competitive search, SFU has been selected to host the headquarters for the Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute (CANSSI), thus launching a collaboration between the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, CANSSI, and SFU's Big Data Hub.  CANSSI (http://www.canssi.ca/) is a national not-for-profit that fosters, supports, and promotes research, collaboration and training in the statistical sciences.  CANSSI’s headquarters will be housed in SFU’s Big Data Hub.
