Expression of Interest Deadlinefor SRTL-9

The Ninth International Research Forum on Statistical Reasoning, Thinking, and Literacy (SRTL-9) will be held from 26 July 2015 to 1 August 2015 at the Waldhotel Nachtigall in Paderborn - Schloss Neuhaus, Germany. The conference theme will focus on "Reasoning about Models and Modelling in the Context of Informal Statistical Inference." 


The SRTL-9 Forum will build on and expand the work discussed at previous SRTL gatherings. Our previous work has focused on reasoning about "big statistical ideas" such as data, variability, distribution (aggregate view of data), informal statistical inference, context, samples and sampling, and more recently uncertainty. Our discussions suggest that further ideas and pedagogical approaches related to models and modelling are relevant and important to study to allow us to better integrate and/or extend previous work in the context of reasoning about informal statistical inference.


Expressions of interest should be submitted before 1 September 2014 to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Participation in the SRTL Forum can be as a presenter or as a discussant. Presenters are asked to send a brief letter of introduction of yourself and a two-page overview of the work relevant to the theme of the Forum. The overview should include a brief introduction, literature review and/or theoretical framework, methodology, expected results, and your practical and theoretical contribution to the theme. Discussants are experienced SRTLers who will actively participate in all sessions and discussions and will have time to share their own reflections and comments in a panel on the concluding day. Discussants are asked to send a brief letter with a formal expression of interest.
