Promoting interdisciplinary research at QPRC 2015

The Quality & Productivity Research Conference is about to take place in our backyard (so to speak) at the School of Textiles at North Carolina State University. And it includes a field trip to our front yard.

The theme of the meeting is Creativity and Innovation for a Connected World. As the conference website says, QPRC 2015 aims "to stimulate interdisciplinary research among statisticians, scientists, and engineers in quality and productivity, industrial needs, and the physical and engineering sciences." JMP is all about that.

Attendees who peruse the schedule will notice lots of involvement by JMP and SAS (including many JMP bloggers). In fact, JMP is a co-host, and conference co-chairs are Di Michelson and Mia Stephens.

Here's what JMP and SAS folks will be doing during the conference:
