The NTTS series, New Techniques and Technologies for Statistics (NTTS) is an international biennial scientific conference series, organised by Eurostat, on new techniques and methods for official statistics and the impact of new technologies on statistical collection, production and dissemination systems.
The purpose of the conference is both to allow the presentation of results from currently ongoing research and innovation projects in official statistics, and to stimulate and facilitate the preparation of new innovative projects (by encouraging the exchange of views and co-operation between researchers - including the possible building of research consortia) with the aim of enhancing the quality and usefulness of official statistics and to prepare activities related to research in statistics within the European Framework Programme for Research and Development (Horizon 2020).
The NTTS 2019 is free of charge, offering publication possibilities after the successful acceptance of the abstract. The submitted abstracts will undergo a double-blinded peer-review by the members of the NTTS 2019 scientific committee. The NTTS 2019 conference will take place from 12 to 14 March 2019 in Brussels (with satellite events taking place on 11 and 15 March).
The European Statistics Code of Practice was first adopted by the Statistical Programme Committee (SPC) in 2005. The Code was revised by the European Statistical System Committee (ESSC) in 2011 and 2017; the ESSC endorsed the latter revision on 16 November 2017. The revised Code has 16 principles concerning the institutional environment, statistical processes and statistical outputs. The Code aims to ensure that statistics produced within the European Statistical System (ESS) are relevant, timely and accurate, and that they comply with the principles of professional independence, impartiality and objectivity. A set of indicators of best practices and standards for each principle provides guidance and a reference for reviewing the implementation of the Code. We are currently working on the other language versions and they will become available shortly.
Last chance to submit an abstract for the 2018 Conference of European Statistics Stakeholders – deadline extended to 14 June 2018
Place and date: University of Bamberg in Bamberg, Germany, from 18 to 19 October 2018
