Dear Speakers in the 2016 ICSA Symposium,
Thank you very much for participating in the 25th ICSA Applied Statistics Symposium and sharing with us your cutting-edge research. We hope you enjoyed the successful symposium held in the beautiful city of Atlanta.
Professors Jiahua Chen and Din Chen, the co-editors of the ICSA Springer book series, would like to showcase the scientific output for our statistics symposium by making a book, which reflects new challenges and advances in the contemporary data era. We welcome submissions from all areas of statistics, data science and interdisciplinary areas. Submitted papers are expected to present new methods in statistics and data science, new theories, and case applications, etc.
Below are our plans:
1. You are encouraged to submit your research that you presented in the 2016 ICSA Symposium or another paper that is related to the one presented.
2. To include high quality papers to the book, all submissions will be subject to peer review. Each submission will also be independently reviewed by the co-editors. The final accepted papers will be those selected by the co-editors.
3. To make the process moves very smoothly,
a. If you agree to submit a paper, we need you to indicate your intent of submission by Sept. 15, 2016, with a tentative title of the paper (you can change the title later), your name (first, middle and last), and your affiliation. Please email this information to Yichuan Zhao at firstname.lastname@example.org.
b. A manuscript is sent to Yichuan Zhao by Dec. 30, 2016. The decision will be reached by April 30, 2017.
c. The book is expected to appear on August 30, 2017.
We look forward to hearing from you.
