The Cascadia Symposium on Statistics in Sports
September 24, 2016
Vancouver, Canada


The 2016 Cascadia Symposium on Statistics in Sports is a meeting of statisticians and quantitative analysts connected with sports teams, sports media, and universities to discuss common problems of interest in statistical modeling and analysis of sports data. The symposium format is a mixture of invited talks, a poster session, and a panel discussion.

The symposium, like the content of this website, is based heavily on the
New England Symposium on Statistics in Sports


In addition to a plenary talk and panel, the symposium will include several oral presentations. For consideration, please email an abstract in pdf format (max 2 pages) to by June 15, 2016. Be sure to include your name, affiliation, and contact information in the email. Abstracts will be reviewed by June 30. Note that there will be a poster session for those not accepted as oral presentations.

The program will consist of a plenary presentation by Kirk Goldsberry, a soccer analytics panel (panelists to be announced shortly), 8-12 technical presentations (to be selected from submitted abstracts), and a poster session.
