Apologies to people who get more than one of these requests, or who don't go
to the Joint Statistical Meetings.
I'm looking for chairs for about a dozen contributed paper sessions sponsored
by the ASA section on statistical computing at the Joint Statistical Meetings in
Vancouver this year, Sunday August 1 to Thursday August 5.

The rewards are also pretty minimal: the gratitude of the ASA and possibly of
Thomas Lumley Assoc. Professor, Biostatistics
