User group grants and awards: applicants needed!

Really! I did a double-take last week when a conference chair told me that there’s grant money available for students, faculty and SAS junior professionals but few have applied. In one case, there were no applications submitted. We're hoping this is just a temporary glitch, a holdup resulting from too-busy schedules […]

WUSS 2013: Getting to know you

Road trip: WUSS meets in Hollywood this year!

Okay - not exactly Hollywood – but it’s only 30 minutes away – so you could visit during the evening or stay the weekend after the conference to do some star-sightings. Long Beach is outside of Los Angeles and close to Hollywood!  It’s not too late to sign up for the WUSS (Western […]

Building a treasure trove: Donate your old SAS proceedings
