Emerging Applications

The Emerging Applications Section (EAS) was formed at the beginning of 2017, to replace the General Applications Section (GAS). The remit of GAS, in practice, was to offer a forum at the RSS for statistical applications that did not fall into the remit of another of the other Sections. The role of EAS is to play a more active and forward-looking role in the Society’s strategic objective of greater understanding of an increasingly complex world. Specifically, the Section will provide a platform for topics that are of emerging importance in the discipline.
