Call for session proposals for RSS 2020 Conference

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in News

The RSS Conference Board has announced a call for proposals for invited topic sessions at the RSS 2020 International Conference which will take place in Bournemouth from 7-10 September 2020.

The annual conference regularly attracts more than 600 statisticians, data scientists and other users of statistics and data.

Invited sessions are 80 minutes in length and are selected by the Board from the proposals submitted to them. These sessions are allocated to a relevant conference stream and run in parallel with other invited sessions.

Any individual or organisation can submit a session proposal and it can be on any topic related to statistics and data.

Invited sessions can take any format and may comprise several different speakers on related topics or alternatively could involve a panel discussion, tutorial or workshop.  The conference organisers are keen to receive proposals for sessions which cover new research and results, areas of controversy/debate, topical discussion, and informative and innovative case studies.

Following the inaugural Data Ethics Day at this year’s conference the board are also interested to receive proposals on topics related to data ethics.

Submissions are also open for short informal workshops and training sessions (60-80 minutes) aiming to provide bite-sized continual professional development opportunities.

Full guidelines on how to make a submission are available and a proposal form can be obtained from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., the RSS conference manager.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 18 November.

Further details about the conference will be available from www.rss.org.uk/conference2020 in due course.
