Sixth International Conference on Establishment Statistics

On behalf of the Program Committee, you are cordially invited to submit an invited session proposal for Sixth International Conference on Establishment Statistics (ICES-VI). Continuing in the traditions of ICES-I to ICES-V, ICES VI will explore new areas of establishment statistics, as well as reflect state-of-the-art methodology at the time of the conference, promoting discussion of a broad range of issues related to the statistics of businesses, farms, or institutions. Participants come from academia, government statistical agencies, private businesses, statistical associations, and other sectors with an interest in international best practices in conceptualization, design, data collection, analysis, and dissemination.

And if that isn’t enough information to entice you, perhaps the location will. ICES-VI will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, June 15–18, 2020. The conference will be at the Ritz Carlton in the historic (and fun) French Quarter of New Orleans-a unique city known for its vibrant music and delicious beignets.

Anyone can propose a session, so once you decide on a theme, shop it around with the people you know are active in that area, find at least two committed presenters, then submit your proposal online at ww2.amstat.org/meetings/ices/2020/invitedsessions.cfm.

You have several months before proposals are due, but the number of sessions at this prestigious conference is limited, so start reaching out to colleagues now.
