The DGINS Conference was created on 15 July 1953 in Luxembourg and was acting then as the predecessor of the Statistical Programme Committee (SPC).

It is held once a year with the aim of discussing topics related to the statistical programme and methods and processes for the production of Community statistics. It is hosted each year by a different Member State and the Director General of the host country chairs the conference.

The DGINS conference 2017 will take place from 20 to 21 September in Budapest, Hungary. The DGINS 2017 conference features a statistical session focusing on the topic of "Population Movements and Integration Issues - Migration Statistics" and an internal session on "ESS Strategy beyond 2020".
