The Cascadia Symposium on Statistics in Sports
August 3, 2018
Vancouver, Canada


The 2018 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.

Founded in 2016, CASSIS is based heavily on the
New England Symposium on Statistics in Sports.

While normally held biannually in September, CASSIS has been moved to August 3 in 2018 to coincide with JSM, being held July 28 - August 2, 2018 in Vancouver.


In addition to a plenary talk and panel, the symposium will include several oral presentations and posters. To be considered for an oral presentation, please email an abstract in pdf format (max 2 pages) to by April 30, 2018. Be sure to include your name, affiliation, and contact information in the email.

Abstracts will be reviewed by May 15. Note that there will be a poster session for those not accepted as oral presentations.


Registration will open soon


Coming Spring 2018
