Abstract : The 26th Symposium on the Interface of Computing Science and Statistics was held on June 15-18, 1994 at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Research Triangle Park, NC. The conference theme was Computationally intensive Statistical Methods. The theme is especially appropriate as computational power has increased dramatically in the last few years and the use of resampling techniques has boomed. The Interface was scheduled between two other statistics conferences in the same area: the Spring Research Conference on Statistics in Industry, hosted by the National Institute of Statistical Sciences, and the Third World Congress-Bernoulli Society--IMS meetings, at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The conference attracted 363 attendees. There were 23 invited sessions, 21 contributed paper sessions, 9 poster presentations, 4 short courses, 2 practical tutorials, several statistical tutorial sessions, one keynote speech, one banquet presentation, and 2 tours.
