The DAE Conference Series

The purpose of the Design and Analysis of Experiments (DAE) conference series is to provide support and encouragement to junior researchers in the field of design and analysis of experiments, and to stimulate interest in topics of practical relevance to science and industry. The meetings also attract top notch senior researchers, primarily from North America and Europe, and emphasize interaction between junior and senior researchers.

The DAE conference series grew out of a conference that was held in 2000 at The Ohio State University. While this initial conference concentrated on the Midwest, subsequent conferences became truly international in terms of participants and expanded to North America in terms of locations. The latter have included Vancouver, BC (2002), Chicago, IL (2003), Santa Fe, NM (2005), Memphis, TN (2007), Columbia, MO (2009), Athens, GA (DAE 2012) and Cary, NC (2015).

DAE 2017 is the ninth event in the DAE conference series. It will focus on emerging areas of research in experimental design, as well as novel innovations in traditional areas. A salient feature of the DAE series is pairing of senior and junior researchers for mentoring purposes and DAE 2017 at UCLA will follow this tradition. Following past meetings, there will be 10 invited sessions, each with 3 speakers. Each session has 90 minutes. There will be two poster sessions and opportunities for you to lead or participate in roundtable discussions as well. Travel support may be available for students and junior researchers who received their doctorate degrees after 2012. 

The deadline for submission of abstracts and requests for travel support is June 30, 2017.
