Conference announcement

The conference Applied Statistics 2009 is organized by Statistical Society of Slovenia and University of Ljubljana in cooperation with Statistical Office of RS.
AS2009 is sponsored by the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS).


The annual conferences of methodologists and statisticians were established in 1982. First conferences were organized in Bled and then several years in Preddvor and Ljubljana. Since 2005 the conferences are organized in Ribno.  Following the very successful conference in 2008, the 2009 conference will be again organized in Hotel Ribno in a vicinity of the magnificent Lake Bled.

The main goal of Applied Statistics 2009 conference is to provide an opportunity for researchers in statistics, data analysts, and other professionals from various statistical and related fields to come together, present their research, and learn from each other.  A four days program consists of invited paper presentations, contributed paper sections from diverse topics, and finishes with a workshop. Cross-discipline and applied paper submissions are especially welcome.
