The purpose of the Reading Group is to foster communication amongst statisticians living or working in the Reading area and with local people who have an interest in statistics.  We do this mainly through scientific meetings but will have social events if there is a demand.

Anyone can attend our meetings, they are open to the general public.  You do not have to reside in the Reading area, and you don’t have to be a statistician.

If you tell us what interests you then we can plan meetings that meet your needs, so please contact us.  We would like to create a group that is vibrant and relevant to the local area.

If you would like to give something back to the local community we want you on our committee, please join us. The committee has short monthly skype meetings with supplementary face-to-face meetings in Reading from time to time, so it isn’t as time consuming as you might imagine.

We generally hold technical events at the University during working hours and general interest events in the evening in the centre of town.  Which do you prefer?

There are many people working in insurance locally, what statistical topics would be of interest to you?
