  • Royal Statistical Society
    RSS home page. Includes links to RSS news, conferences, membership info, committees, etc. Also includes a link to the RSS Centre for Statistical Education.
  • Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
    SIAM home page. Includes the standard links to membership info, conferences, publications, and career information (nice because it allows online browsing of job listings from their newsletter, SIAM News). Also some links to other math sites. The home page is graphics intensive, so be prepared to wait if using a slow Internet connection. (This is true only for the main home page–other pages at this site seem to be mostly text and transfer pretty quickly.)
