Welcome to Q2018

Dear Colleagues,

Statistics Poland and Eurostat are pleased to invite you to the European Conference on Quality in Official Statistics (Q2018) which will be held on 27th – 29th June, 2018 at the “ICE Kraków Congress Centre” in Kraków, Poland.

The Conference on Quality in Official Statistics in 2018 will be a continuation of the previous eight meetings organised since 2001 in various European countries. For the first time the conference will take place in a country of Central and Eastern Europe.

The Q2018 Conference constitutes a scientific event covering methodological and quality-related issues that are relevant for the development of the European Statistical System. The Conference aims at presenting different approaches and ideas for implementing the European statistics Code of Practice, reinforcing the quality of statistics using best international principles and practices and presenting new areas of development for the ESS as a whole. Furthermore, as an open forum of debate, it will provide an opportunity to enhance scientific exchange and discussions on emerging issues related to the quality of statistics, in particular in the context of the ESS Vision 2020.

In addition, a series of training courses on important methods and tools for improved quality of statistics production, will be held on the day preceding the start of the Conference – June 26th, 2018.

The conference website, continuously updated, provides important information concerning the conference venue, sessions and training courses, as well as key dates and guidelines for the submission of papers, local information etc.

If you have any questions, please contact the organisers.

Looking forward to seeing you in Kraków!
