The European Commission is organising a cross-domain conference on Benford's Law foundations, methods and applications.


The general goals of the conference are:

  • to provide insight on the suitability of the Benford's Law (BL) for fraud detection,
  • to discuss the state of the art in the field, and
  • to reflect on new BL-based procedures

The conference has a cross-domain dimension and participants will have the opportunity to discuss the applicability of statistical tools derived from Benford's Law to major anti-fraud problems arising in other financial contexts than international trade.
