Call for Sponsorship

Corporate support has always been and will continue to be a critical factor to the success of the Symposium and ICSA. The 2019 ICSA Applied Statistics Symposium is seeking for sponsorship to support student awards, reimburse the keynote speakers and other symposium costs. Sponsors at both Gold and General levels will be recognized through our publications and onsite signage and will reach a broad domestic and international audience through the symposium. At the Gold level, sponsors will also be given the opportunities to set up an exhibition booth and a placement service at the symposium. Your corporate sponsorship will not only demonstrate your leadership in the industry but also the corporation's recognition of statisticians' significant contribution in the business. Any level of contributions will be appreciated.
