ISI calls for nominations of ISI members who may be interested and qualified for serving as Chair of the committee. Self-nominations are acceptable.

The Committee on the History of Statistics:

  • maintains an archive of articles on the history of statistics,
  • documents the history of the ISI, its Associations, and national statistical organizations,
  • develops new articles in areas of interest to the community.

The committee organises scientific sessions in the ISI World Statistics Congresses (WSCs). At WSC 2021, it looked at broadening its interest beyond its traditional focus on Europe and North America.

The term of Peter Guttorp as the Chair of the committee, as well as ISI Vice-President, came to an end, and we would like to thank him for his hard work, energy and commitment to the role.
We are looking for a new chair and are asking for your help in identifying ISI members who may be interested in, and well qualified for serving the position of Chair. Self-nominations are acceptable.

To nominate candidates, please send an email, by 29 October 2021 to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., that includes name of the nominee and email address.
