Dear madam/sir,

Following you will find the information concerning the XIV Compstat 
conference of the International Association for Statistical 
Computing. The conference will take place in Utrecht, The Netherlands 
from 21-25 August 2000. The scientific programme will consist of a 
variety of interesting sessions and also a full programme of social 
events will be offered.

We also refer you to the website http://neon.vb.cbs.nl/rsm/compstat

We are looking forward to seeing you in Utrecht in 2000!

Sincerely, 
Local Organisation Committee &Scientific Programme Committee Compstat 
2000.

Compstat 2000

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. The
Department of Methodology and Statistics of Utrecht University has a 
strong involvement in statistical computing and applied statistics. 
Statistics Netherlands is also known for its expertise in applied 
statistics, and for its innovative approach in the application of 
recent developments of information technology to survey data 
collection and processing.

Approximately 35 kilometres south of Amsterdam Utrecht stands in the heart of the Netherlands.
It was founded in 48 by the Romans, who built a military settlement 
along the shore of the Rhine. In 695 the English Benedictine monk 
Willibrord came to christianise Francks and Frisians and made Utrecht 
to a centre of religion, which is still noticeable n present times. 
For centuries, Utrecht was the largest and only city of importance in 
the northern part of the Netherlands. Today, Utrecht is an attractive 
city. With 230,000 inhabitants Utrecht is the fourth largest city in 
The Netherlands, only Amsterd , Rotterdam and The Hague having 
greater populations. With its magnificient cathedral, churches, 
canals museums and historic buildings dating from the 16th century 
onwards Utrecht is a city of outstanding culture. As host to the 
largest University in The therlands Utrecht also offers a lively and 
varied social scene with busy restaurants, cafes, pubs and 
nightspots. Utrecht is easy reached by road and rail. Delegates 
flying into Amsterdam Schiphol Airport can take the train from the 
airport directly to th centre of the city. If you would like to find 
out more about Utrecht and how to reach it please visit the website.

There will be a full programme of social events including a Buffet Reception, Concert, Dinner and excursions,
to allow participants to exchange ideas, meet friends and see many 
of the local attractions. 

Scientific Programme

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. 

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.
 
The scientific programme will consist of a variety of sessions, such 
as parallel and plenary presentations, invited and contributed 
papers, poster sessions, one or two tutorials, and software 
demonstrations.  The Scientific Programme Committee seeks papers 
touching on all aspects of computational statistics. This includes 
theory, applications, and implementations.  The Scientific Programme 
Committee also welcomes papers in the field of Official Statistics, 
i.e. papers in the field of data collection, data editing, data 
analysis, and data publications.   Papers may be selected by the 
Scientific Programme Committee as full contributions, short 
contributions or posters. Selection is based on submitted abstracts 
of up to two pages. These should include the main results and 
references, highlighting novel asp ts and indicating their relevance 
to the above mentioned three categories. Further details and sample 
abstract formats can be found on the website. Full contributions will 
be refereed and published, with the invited papers, in a volume of  
Proceedings by ysica Verlag. Short communications and posters will be 
published in a 2nd volume by Statistics Netherlands and Utrecht 
university.  At the conference, several prices will be awarded: . 
Three prices, each worth 1000 Dutch Guilders, will be awarded for the 
best three contributions submitted and presented by young 
participants (upper age limit 35 years for all authors on August 31, 
2000). . A price will be awarded for the best poster presentation.   
Invited speakers  Keynote speakers . Donald Rubin (The broad role for 
multiple imputation in statistical science), and . Peter Kooiman 
(Mass imputation versus sequential weighting of a virtual census) At 
the moment invited speakers include . Noel Cressie (Space-time Kalman 
filtering and MCMC), . Antoine de Falguerolles (generalized linear 
models with bilinear terms), . David Draper (Computational issues in 
MCMC fitting of multilevel models), . David Hand (Methodological 
issues in data mining) . Georges Hebrail (Practical data mining in a 
large utility company), . Youngjo Lee (Analysis of correlated 
non-Gaussian data via hierarchical generalized linear models), . 
Helmut Luetkepohl (Bootstrapping impulse responses in VAR analyses), 
. Agustin Maravall (Some applications of the signal extraction 
technique to socioeconomic time series), . Erich Neuwirth 
(Spreadsheets in statistical education), . Walter Racugno (Bayes 
factors for model selection and prediction) . Hans van Houwelingen 
(Nonproportional hazards models in survival analysis), . Ari Verbyla 
(Spatio-temporal modelling), Please check our home page for the 
latest and more detailed information.
