Dear Sir / Madame,
The COMPSTAT 2000 conference of the ISI International Association for
Statistical Computing will take place in Utrecht, the Netherlands from 21 -
25 August 2000.
Statistical computing provides the link between statistical theory and
applied statistics. As at previous Compstats, the scientific programme will
cover all aspects of this link, from the development and implementation of
new statistical ideas through to user experiences and software evaluation.
The programme should appeal to anyone working in statistics and using
computers, whether in universities, industrial companies, government
agencies, research institutes or as software developers.
The conference will be jointly organised by the Department of Methodology
and Statistics of Utrecht University and the Department of Statistical
Methods of Statistics Netherlands.
Papers may be submitted in any of the following categories:
- Statistical research - Development of statistical methodology, especially
topics that rely on computers and computing environments.
- Computing - Contributions of computer algorithms, tools and environments
to the practice of statistics.
- Applied statistics - Innovative applications of statistical computing in
any area of current interest.
Th deadline for submitting abstracts is 8 November 1999. For more
