We are glad to announce the first call for abstracts of the Conference of European Statistics Stakeholders (CESS) 2022, which will be held at the Department of Statistical Sciences of the University of Rome "La Sapienza" (Italy) on October 20-21, 2022.

The scope of the Conference is to enhance the dialogue between European methodologists, producers, and users of European Statistics.

The Conference will be in-presence, but we will allow at-distance attendance (preferably not for the speakers).

No registration fee will be required, but registration is mandatory for all participants (limited attendance – first come, first served and preference for speakers).

To present a paper at CESS, you need to submit an abstract after creating an account on Indico. The abstract must be up to 1 page long, and the author must select at least one of the thematic areas of the Conference (see the end of this message). The deadline for the abstract submission is April 30, 2022.

All CESS 2022 participants will also have the opportunity to submit their full paper for publication in:

  1. Springer-Nature Series Studies in Theoretical and Applied Statistics. It will contain selected papers of methodological and applied interest from the CESS 2022 conference.
  2. ECB Statistics Paper Series. It will contain selected papers of interest to central banks from the CESS 2022 conference.
  3. Springer Special Issue of the International Journal ADAC. It will contain selected papers on new methodologies interconnecting Statistical Learning, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence for high-quality and timely statistics.

The deadline for full paper submissions is November 15, 2022. Further details on the modalities of the paper submission will follow soon here.

The preliminary program will be announced by June 30, 2022. The final schedule will be notified by October 1, 2022. For further information and updates, please visit the conference website https://cess2022.dss.uniroma1.it/event/3/ or contact cess2022.dss@uniroma1.it.
