We wanted to provide an update on our efforts to build the Society for Causal Inference (SCI). As you may recall, we are creating the SCI as a home for causal inference research that will increase support and knowledge sharing both within the academic community as well as between academics, policy-makers and researchers in the private sector. The Society’s mission is to foster the science of causal inference and connect disparate fields that use causal knowledge. SCI will address both the need for better methods and the need to make these methods available to researchers who impact policy – helping us all improve our answers to critical causal questions that confront us everyday.

We are announcing a logo contest for the Society. Please send your logo ideas to one of the undersigned. The winner will get one year free membership in the Society.
Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you’re fired.
OK, just kidding about the second and third prizes. But they’re serious about the logo. So if you have something, let them know!
