In terms of overall breadth, I would say that the ASA/IMS Joint Statistical Meetings are the most significant. Next year, the statisticians are taking their talents to South Beach...or Miami Beach is more correct. I just couldn't help to use that line from Lebron James' infamous press conference. Having said that, I prefer smaller conferences like the UseR! conferences, ICORS (robust statistics), etc.

For biostatistics the largest US conferences are the meetings of the local sections of the International Biometrics Society (IBS):
- ENAR for the Eastern region: http://www.enar.org/meetings.cfm
- WNAR for the Western region: http://www.wnar.org/

Of these ENAR is by far larger.

Shameless plug: R/Finance which relevant for its intersection of domain-specifics as well as tools, and so far well received by participants of the 2009 and 2010 conference. .

Disclaimer: I am one of the organizers.

The main regular conference in Australia is the "Australian Statistics Conference", held every second year. The next one is ASC 2010, to be held in Western Australia in December.

This is a new annual conference that should be great for people using statistics and wanting to improve their practical knowledge. And it will be in warm places in the winter!

The inaugural ASA Conference on Statistical Practice, to be held in Orlando, Florida, February 16–18, 2012, meets the needs of statistical practitioners engaged in design, analysis, programming, and consulting. The program for Statistical Practice 2012 features three main tracks:

  • Research and Development, Engineering, and Operations
  • Business Analytics
  • Communications, Impact, and Career Development

Both the content and format of this conference have been carefully planned to improve your effectiveness as a statistical problem solver. Invited sessions, tutorials, and short courses will refresh your statistical training, update your knowledge of emerging areas of practice, and sharpen your soft skills. Poster sessions will give you the opportunity to share and discuss your work. And if you are looking for employment, a virtual career placement service will benefit your search.

The timing for this conference could not be better, because the opportunities for statistical practitioners have never been greater.

Though it hasn't been around for decades, I'm currently looking forward to MCMSki. One could also mention the Valencia Meetings, but those only happen every four years (and you've already missed the 2010 meeting).

  • $\begingroup$ Unfortunately, the Valencia meetings are no more. The last one was this year! Instead, we're just going to have general ISBA meetings. $\endgroup$ – csgillespie Oct 5 '10 at 16:23
