ISI World Statistics Congresses
The ISI World Statistics Congresses (WSC) take place once every two years in a different country and is organised with the host country's central bureau of statistics. This is the main activity of the ISI where all our Associations, Committees and various types of members come together to participate in the different aspects of the WSC for one entire week. The next ISI WSC is in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 26-31 July 2013.
The WSCs have a rich Scientific Programme that are grouped into three types of meetings: invited paper sessions (IPS), special topic sessions (STS) and contributed and posters sessions (CPS).
There is an Administrative Programme that includes meetings of the Executive Committees, Councils, General Assemblies and Committees of the ISI and the Associations.
During specific evenings, the local hosts spend a lot of attention on the Social Programme to give participants a flavour of the culture of the host country. The Social Programme also includes daytime activities for accompanying persons. In addition to the activities of the WSC, there are Satellite Meetings and Short Courses of the ISI and the Associations that take place in or close to the host city before and after the main WSC week. There are also options for pre-organised tours.
