2022 IMS International Conference on Statistics and Data Science (ICSDS)

December 13-16, 2022, Florence, Italy

In response to the call from the 2021 IMS Survey report to expand membership from emerging areas of data science, underrepresented groups and from regions outside of North America, the IMS Council has just approved the launch of annual IMS International Conference on Statistics and Data Science (ICSDS). The first ICSDS is to be held in Florence, Italy, December 13-16, 2022.

The objective of ICSDS is to bring together researchers in statistics and data science from academia, industry and government in a stimulating setting to exchange ideas on the developments of modern statistics, machine learning, and broadly defined theory, methods and applications in data science.

The conference will consist of plenary sessions, and about 50 invited, contributed and poster sessions. Young researchers are particularly encouraged to participate, as a portion of the invited sessions will be designated for young researchers.

Save the date and see you in Florence in December 2022!
