JRC 2006 is a joint research conference combining the Spring Research Conference on Statistics in Industry and Technology (SRC 2006) and the Quality and Productivity Research Conference (QPRC 2006). The SRC and the QPRC hold a joint research conference every 3-5 years to focus on areas of common interest between the two conferences.

The JRC 2006 conference theme "Challenges from Emerging Trends in Applications, Data, and Technology" highlights new trends in applications that are currently driving significant change in statistical practice. Organizational changes are empowering non-statisticians with statistical thinking and tools to drive improved business decisions. Technological changes, such as the use of computational experiments in physical and engineering sciences and in product and process design, the microarray revolution in biology, and the reliability data instrumentation of today’s intelligent products are producing new kinds of data in unprecedented quantities and with unprecedented diversity. The present and future responses of statistical methodology to these challenges continue to shape statistical practice in quality, industry, and technology.

The University of Tennessee College of Business Administration and the College of Engineering will serve as the host (academic) sponsors for the 2006 JRC Research Conference.  The conference will be held at the Knoxville Downtown Hilton Hotel, June 7-9, 2006 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
