58th World Statistics Congress of the International Statistical Institute

The 58th World Statistics Congress of the International Statistical Institute (ISI) was held in Dublin from the 21st to the 26th August 2011. The CSO hosted the Congress on behalf of the ISI.

The ISI has held biennial Congresses since 1853 and recent sessions have attracted over 2,500 delegates. Participants include academics, government and private sector statisticians and related experts from various institutes. 

The biennial meeting of the ISI is probably unique in bringing together statisticians from across the disciplinary spectrum – official statistics; business, financial, environmental and industrial statistics; surveying and sampling computational & mathematical statistics; probability and stochastic modeling and statistical education. Moreover, it brings together statisticians from both developing and developed nations to share experiences, expertise and challenges.

The Scientific Programme of the 58th Congress offered delegates innovative and stimulating topics with well-balanced presentations. A key feature of the 58th Congress was the special Theme Day held on Wednesday the 24th August, where papers were devoted to statistical issues relating to Water and Water Quality. 

Registration for the Congress took place on Sunday the 21st August, the Scientific programme commenced on Monday the 22nd and concluded on Friday the 26th August, with the ISI President’s Invited Papers Meeting.
