RSS West Midlands Local Group

The West Midlands Local Group (WMLG) of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) arranges an annual programme of mostly general interest talks and sponsors statistical events intended to appeal to anyone with an interest in statistics and its applications.

We hold four meetings each year: two at the University of Warwick (on Thursdays, 5–6pm) and two at the University of Birmingham (on Wednesdays, 4–5pm). Tea and coffee are provided before each seminar and wine and cheese afterwards.
