The Symposium is organized by the International Society for Business and Industrial Statistics (ISBIS), which is an international society that is dedicated to the promotion of business and industrial statistics worldwide. This is interpreted broadly and includes areas such as financial and health services among others. ISBIS is part of a family of international associations that operate under the umbrella of the International Statistical Institute (ISI). ISBIS promotes applications, research, and best current practices in business and industrial statistics, facilitates technology transfer, and fosters communications among members and practitioners worldwide.
The conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from across the world who use Statistics in business or industrial contexts. The conference focus is on recent advancements in methodology and as well as on best practices and innovative applications. The ISBIS conferences promote communication among researchers and practitioners to enable and ensure the development and widespread use of novel insights and methodology.
The conference program includes 4 keynote presentations and 2 half day courses which are all listed below. The program also includes invited and contributed sessions, with an exciting half-day excursion to Niagara Falls included in the conference fee. Until March 1, we invite participants to submit invited session proposals which consist of several (typically 3) presentations on a related topic. The submission should include the title, a brief description of the topic, and the speakers in that session (which can include the organizer of the session). Next to these invited session proposals, you may submit a title and abstract for a contributed session until March 1. Please indicate whether you prefer to give a presentation or present a poster but the SPC will make the final decision taking into account the number of submissions.
