The DGINS Conference was created on 15 July 1953 in Luxembourg and was acting then as the predecessor of the Statistical Programme Committee (SPC).
The Conference 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 2020 will take place in Warsaw, Poland. The chosen topic for the Conference is "Earth observations for official statistics". The conference has been postponed to 2021 due to travel restrictions and the current limitations to organise physical meetings in the EU.
