YSM is an annual event specifically designed for career young statisticians, organised by career young statisticians. If you are in the early years of your statistical career (first 10 years) or currently studying for a PhD, MSc or BSc in statistics then YSM offers an excellent opportunity to present your own research in a friendly environment, discover a variety of other statistical topics currently being researched and network amongst your peers.
