The 54th Deming Conference on Applied Statistics will be held from December
7 to 11, 1998, at the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. Jointly
sponsored by the Biopharmaceutical Section of the American Statistical
Association and the Statistics Division of the American Society for Quality,
this conference was cofounded by Dr. W. Edwards Deming, and for the last 20
years has consisted of 3 days of 1/2 tutorials followed by 2 days of short
courses. Separate registration is permitted for individual days or parts of
the Conference.

Among the tutorial speakers this year are Norman Draper on Regression
Analysis, Dennis Cook on Regression Graphics, Daniel Zelterman on
Coordinate Free Loglinear Models, Dallas Johnson on Mixed Models Analysis of
Repeated Measures Experiments, Dan Carr on Graphics, and James Berger on
Bayesian Hypothesis Testing and Model Selection. There are also several
talks by statisticians from the Pharmaceutical Industry on a variety of
Biopharmaceutical issues ranging from Equivalence Trials to Pharmacoeconomic
Studies.

The two short courses are: Peter Westfall and Dror Rom on Multiple
Comparisons: Applications and Case Studies; and Richard Deveaux and Lyle
Ungar on Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery: A Practical Introduction. Both
these courses have been well-received when they were presented at recent ASA
Annual Meetings.

The variety of applied topics presented by well-known experts, flexibility
of registration, and learning-friendly tutorial format makes this an
outstanding applied statistics conference. To get more info and obtain
