The 63rd ISI World Statistics Congress will be virtual in July 2021!

The International Statistical Institute is pleased to announce that its flagship biennial ‘World Statistics Congress 2021 - The Hague’ will be held virtually in July 2021.

This is an opportunity for the ISI to host a more inclusive conference than ever before. It will allow us to have the greatest ever participation, reaching out to a wide diversity of members who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend an international conference, at lower costs, and with a lower carbon footprint. We hope to see a large number of first-time participants, including many early career statisticians and students along with colleagues from developing countries. Holding a WSC in 2021 as planned will maintain the continuity of WSCs. There will still be a strong link with The Hague, the original venue, in the virtual conference. The ISI will take the opportunity to develop new formats and harness new technology to modernise our meeting. Further details, including a call for papers, will be announced in due course.
