### Spring meeting reminder + logistics

THIS FRIDAY -APRIL 15th, the spring Chapter Meeting will be held at the
National Center for Atmospheric Research - Mesa Lab.  Directions can be
found at  http://www2.ucar.edu/campus/mesa-laboratory.  We will be meeting
at in the main seminar room.  There is no fee or registration required for
this event.

Lunch Options -  We will be having lunch at NCAR's cafeterial.  1.  You can
bring your own lunch.  2.  For $5 you can have lunch in the cafeteria.
This  is partially subsidized by the chapter.  3.  There are some restaurant
options near Broadway and Table Mesa.  On thing to not is that the cafeteria
does not take credit cards.

The lunch break is 90 minutes.  During this extended lunch period you may
choose to attend a 30 minute architectural tour of the Mesa building, take a
wake on one of the trails leading from the lab or take a nap.

### ASA Traveling Course - Markov Simulation

### ASA Traveling Course - Markov Simulation with *Zachary Skrivanek *October
21, 2011 - University of Denver

More details will follow, but the chapter has been selected to host an ASA
Traveling course this fall.  This will be a one day workshop.

 Simulation has a wide range of applications from military strategy to
engineering queuing models to quantum physics. This course will cater
towards statisticians and will focus on Monte Carlo simulations used to
estimate complex processes or functions. The theory behind pseudo random
number generators will be explained and an overview of modeling and
simulation will be given and illustrated with case studies. Specific topics
include importance sampling, McMC, queing models and clinical trial
simulation. Examples will be given in R, but the course will be general
enough so that the student can apply the methodology using any appropriate
