The RSC is a non-profit making event and is organised by postgraduates for postgraduates. The four-day conference primarily aims to provide a forum for PhD students to present and discuss their work, network with other researchers in their field and meet industrial partners. Almost all areas of modern statistics are represented at the RSC: presentations will be in the areas of medical, financial, environmental, computational and theoretical statistics.
Sponsoring the conference will allow your company to communicate with delegates at a number of levels. Your sponsorship of this event will ensure that it is successful and give your company exposure at a national level.
