Hong Kong has successfully won the bid for hosting the 59th World Statistics Congress (WSC) of the International Statistical Institute (ISI). It will be co-organised by the Census and Statistics Department of the Government of Hong Kong, China and the ISI in Hong Kong during 25-30 August 2013.
The biennial ISI WSC is regarded as an important event of the international statistical community. Recent WSCs attracted a turnout of over 2 000 participants each time. The WSCs provide an opportunity for statistical professions to bring each other up-to-date on new researches in various statistical branches that may have unanticipated applications to their own specialty and to discuss emerging issues which are of mutual concerns.
