Tenth Annual Canadian Statistics Student Conference (CSSC)

The tenth annual Canadian Statistics Student Conference (CSSC) will take place on Saturday 28 May 2022, the day before the Statistical Society of Canada 2022 Annual Meeting opens. Given the current ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its recent developments, the CSSC 2022 will be entirely online and free.

This conference is all about engaging students through research presentations, statistical skills development workshops and talks, and an interactive career session with invited statisticians from different professional areas. Registration will be open to students, recent graduates, faculty, and other members of the statistics community in January 2022 (exact date to be determined).

Student Research Talks

Opportunity for students across Canada to give talks on their statistics-related research, and to network with others who share their interests.


We are pleased to announce a keynote address given by Lisa Lix, Professor of Biostatistics in the Department of Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba, a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Methods for Electronic Health Data Quality, and Director of the Data Science Platform in the George & Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation at the University of Manitoba. Her research expertise lies in statistical methods for complex healthcare data and patient-reported outcome measures. She collaborates widely with research groups and organizations across Canada, including Health Data Research Network Canada, Canadian Network for Observational Drug Effect Studies, and the Public Health Agency of Canada. She is co-lead of the Visual and Automated Disease Analytics (VADA) training program that is offered at the University of Manitoba and University of Victoria, and also of the national Artificial Intelligence for Public Health (AI4PH) Summer Institute.


The conference will also offer a career skills session on Communication in Science, a hands-on computational workshop on developing an R package, a career panel consisting of statisticians in the industry and in academia, and a networking lunch. Detailed conference information will be shared here as we confirm our guest speakers. Stay tuned for more!


As part of the CSSC 2022, we will have a networking lunch to allow you to meet with attendees, invited guests and sponsors from across Canada, and an evening social will close off the conference.
