The South African Statistical Association (SASA) and Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) Department of Statistics are proud to host the 54th annual SASA conference. The SASA conference will be held from the 5 of November to 9 of November 2012 in Port Elizabeth.
We welcome all to the NMMU in the beautiful coastal city of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. NMMU is the largest higher institution in the Eastern and Southern Cape. With approximately 25 000 students enrolled across six different campuses. The SASA 2012 conference will be held on the NMMU Summerstrand South Campus. This campus is one of the five NMMU campus across the Eastern Cape and is situated on a nature reserve. The nature reserve conserves fynbos unique to the area and is home to wildlife including springbok, zebra and red hartebeest.
Our aim is to bring statisticians and other quantitative researchers from around the country and abroad together in the “Friendly City”, to share their research, discuss emerging ideas and challenges in their respective fields.
