Dear Colleagues,

If you work in the statistical graphics and/or data visualization fields, please consider organizing an invited session for the JSM 2018 conference in Vancouver, whose 
theme is “#LeadWithStatistics.”

ASA's Section on Statistical Graphics will sponsor 3 invited sessions at JSM 2018, with a further 1-2 proposals having the potential to be included in the JSM 2018 
conference program through open competition. 

Invited session proposals need to be submitted by September 7th, 2017 via the website: http://ww2.amstat.org/meetings/jsm/2018/submissions.cfm. When submitting 
your proposal, please list the ASA Section on Statistical Graphics as the sponsor of your invited session. 

Invited sessions include invited papers and panels:

* Invited paper sessions consist of 2–6 presenters and/or discussants.
* Invited panels have 3–6 panelists providing commentary on a particular topic.

An invited session proposal includes a session title, general description of the session, list of participants, and tentative talk titles.

If you are interested in organizing an invited session, you need to select a session topic and solicit potential speakers. Once you have a sufficient number of committed 
speakers, you can submit your proposal online by the September 7, 2017 deadline.

To have the best chance of receiving an invited session slot, you need to: 

* Have solid new work in an important field;
* Know some of your competitors working in the same field;
* Be willing to reach out to your competitors and forge a session with energy in it.
