ITACOSM 2019 – 6th ITAlian COnference on Survey Methodology, will take place from 5 to 7 June 2019 at the Department of Statistics, Computer Science, Applications "G.Parenti" of the University of Florence.

ITACOSM is a bi-annual international conference promoted by the Survey Sampling Group (S2G) of the Italian Statistical Society (SIS) whose aim is promoting the scientific discussion on the developments of theory and application of survey sampling methodologies in the fields of economics, social and demographic sciences, of official statistics and in the studies on biological and environmental phenomena.

Fundamental changes in the nature of data, their availability, the way in which they are collected, integrated, and disseminated are a big challenge for all those working with designed data from surveys as well as organic data. ITACOSM 2019 tries to give a response to the increasing demand from researchers and practitioners for the appropriate methods  and right tools to face these changes.

ITACOSM 2019 will include plenary (invited) sessions on very relevant themes, specialized (invited) sessions on specific topics, contributed sessions, and poster sessions.


ITACOSM 2019 is organized by S2G and supported by the International Association of Survey Statisticians (IASS) and the University of Florence (UniFI).
