ITACOSM is a bi-annual international conference organized 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.

  • ITACOSM2022

    June 8, 2022 – June 10, 2022

    ITACOSM is a bi-annual international conference organized 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.

    Survey researchers and practitioners have always combined data from various data sources (auxiliary data from Censuses, Administrative registers, GIS data) to enhance sampling designs and estimation. Statistical data integration represents the new frontier of combining information from representative samples with data from multiple sources some of which may have uncontrolled selection mechanisms (non-probability samples, big data, smartphone data, integrated register data). ITACOSM2022 will provide a showcase for methods and applications that combine sources of data for better sampling strategies using classical survey methods or new data science tools such as Machine Learning methods.

     

    ITACOSM2022 will include plenary (keynote) sessions on very relevant themes, specialized (invited) sessions on specific topics, and contributed sessions.

    The Conference will be preceded by a one-day SHORT COURSE on "Survey Data Integration" held by Prof. Jae-Kwang Kim (Iowa State University) on June 7 in Assisi, Palazzo Bernabei.

    Authors wishing to present a paper are invited to submit an abstract by February 14, 2022.

     

    AUTHOR GUIDELINES

    Contributors are requested to submit the abstract on-line. All submissions, except invited talks, are subject to a refereeing process. Authors are requested to submit in the proper track. Please select "Contributed" for free contributed submissions, or choose the appropriate specialized (invited) session in the list. Abstracts should contain no more than 500 words. They have to describe: the substantive problem and the analyzed data, the approach and the models used, as well as the main results of the analysis. Authors of papers presented at ITACOSM2022 may submit their full papers after the conference for publication in a Springer Book - PROMS series - and/or in a special issue of an international journal; further details will be available on the website.

Innovation & Society 5.0: Statistical and Economic Methodologies for Quality Assessment.

The Conference Innovation & Society 5.0 is the 10th Scientific Meeting of the "Statistics for the Evaluation and Quality of Services Group of the Italian Statistical Society - (SVQS)".

It will be held at Economic department, University of Campania "L. Vanvitelli", Gran Priorato di Malta, 81043 Capua (CE) Italy from 27 to 28 january 2022.

This Conference aims:

- to shine a light on the main statistical approaches and methodologies for the evaluation of a human-centered society emphasizing how statistical thinking, design and analysis may be of use to a Society 5.0. While the Enterprise 4.0 looks at the improvement of the production area with the use of the Information Technology (IT), the concept of Society 5.0 is not only aimed at the economy and business, but also at the population, thus promoting the idea of "Super Smart Society", where Information Technology, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will outline the profile of a new super-intelligent society and where many things of work and life will change.

-  to foster advanced methodological research supporting the assessment of quality of social services. Indeed, the Society 5.0 is a human-centered society in which anyone can enjoy a high quality of life full of vigor where a higher value of services is recognized to the collaboration between man and machine, and the moral, ethical and economic values of digitization are rooted in the whole society.

- to be a platform where the experts of Statistics, Data Mining, Data Science, Machine Learning and related disciplines meet to understand and analyse administrative systems with Big Data.

The Society 5.0 addresses all areas of our work and our own life. We will therefore see changes in many aspects of our society and this will require many data analysts, who will have to manage information systems and work with Big Data.

Application fields of interest for the Conference are the following: Sustainability, Health, Wellness, Sport, Tourism, Education, Training and Research, Bank and FinTech, Transportation, Environment, Enterprise, Industry and Finance, E.commerce, Digital Marketing, labour Market, Public Administration, Justice System.

To make it as useful and constructive as possible, the Conference is open to the participation of and discussion with scholars of other disciplines, experts, responsible managers for development policies dealing with the relationships between evaluation, innovation and society.

SIS 2019 - Smart Statistics for Smart Applications

We live in a smart world!

Many of us have a smart phone, a smart TV, a smart watch and our cities have the ambition to become soon smart cities. All this smartness makes use of data that are gathered, analyzed and used to make things easier, to take better decisions and ultimately to have a better life. Whether we want to choose the best restaurant, to plan a trip, to compare our health parameters or to decide what is the best moment to buy an air ticket, the apps of our devices collect large quantities of information, summarize them, present them in an easy format and use them to make accurate forecasts. In this process, obviously, they make a large use of statistics. However, are the current statistical methods adequate to this increased demand and increased quantity and variety of data? Are the old paradigms and methods still valid? Are the visualization analytics we used so far still valid? Are current statistical methods smart enough in the increasingly smart world we live in? The conference aims at discussing the state-of-the-art answers to these questions. It also aims at providing a forum where academics, researchers and practitioners could meet to share experiences and to discuss present a future challenges in this area.

  • STATISTICS AND DATA SCIENCE: NEW CHALLENGES, NEW GENERATIONS

    June 28, 2017 – June 30, 2017

    The 2017 SIS Conference aims to highlight the crucial role of the Statistics in Data Science. In this new domain of "meaning" extracted from the data, the increasing amount of produced and available data in databases, nowadays, has brought new challenges. That involves different fields of statistics, machine learning, information and computer science, optimization, pattern recognition. These afford together a considerable contribute in the analysis of "Big data", open data, relational and complex data, structured and no-structured.

    The interest is to collect the contributes which provide from the different domains of Statistics, in the high dimensional data quality validation, sampling extraction, dimensional reduction, pattern selection, data modeling, testing hypotheses and confirming conclusions drawn from the data.

    In the mention that statistics is the "grammar of data science", statistics has become a basic skill in data science: it gives right meaning to the data. Still, it isn't replaced by newer techniques from machine learning and other disciplines but it complements them.

    The Conference is also addressed to the new challenges of the new generations: the native digital generations, who are called to develop professional skills as "data analyst", one of the more request professionality of the 21th Century, crossing the rigid disciplinary domains of competence. In this perspective, all the traditional statistical topics are admitted with an extension to the related machine learning and computer science ones.
