One of my major undertakings this year was serving as Chair of the Scientific Program Committee for the International Conference on Design and Analysis of Experiments (ICODOE 2022), which was held at the University of Memphis, May 2023, supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. The techniques of design and analysis of experiments are applied in almost in every discipline, and we were able to attract speakers to highlight application areas as diverse as artificial intelligence, pharmaceutical drug development, clinical trials, health economics, food delivery, industrial computer experiments, reduction of uncertainty in nuclear data, and analysis of “big data”. We had postponed the conference from 2022 due to on-going Covid concerns, and it was wonderful to be able to hold an in-person meeting at last, with 108 participants from both academia and industry, representing 11 different countries as well as 25 states in the USA. We were also successful in attracting a large number of talented young new researchers and researchers from underrepresented groups, who will form the next generation of researchers in the field.
