YS-ISI is the young statisticians' group in ISI, which was established in 2010. The YS-ISI is devoted to provide a networking forum for students, post-docs, young researchers and professionals dealing with all fields of statistics, to discuss and share ideas and researches with the statistical community at large. The YS-ISI exists to bring together career-young statisticians around the world and to help support their career development and enjoyment. Everyone interested in statistics is welcome to join, particularly if you're a student or graduated in the last ten years and work in a statistics related area.

We will facilitate various activities to enhance communication between members and community such as the regional workshops, the scientific program at a meeting, the short courses and the social events.
