Abstract submission deadline extended: March 24, 2019, 23:59 CET


The International Conference on Official Statistics; Emerging trends in statistical methodologies and data dissemination (ICOS2019) is a joint initiative by the School of Economics and Business of the University of Sarajevo and the Institute for Statistics of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina that aims to bring together academics, practitioners and data users to present their research, share their best practices, and discuss avenues for development of official statistics in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region.

This inaugural international scientific gathering will be held in Sarajevo on 14 and 15 November 2019, and will aim to become a biennial event. It will include presentations by prominent international invited speakers, as well as high-quality research findings from applicants selected through rigorous manuscript review by the international Scientific Program Committee. All accepted manuscripts will be published in ICOS2019 Conference Proceedings, which we will aim to register with prominent citation indexes/databases.

1) Official Statistics (improvement, harmonization, data collection, tools, methods, sector-specific statistics, etc.)

2) Business Statistics (use of administrative and accounts data, challenges and development)

3) Econometrics modeling for policy making

4) Application of statistical methodology (Economics, Finance, Health, Education and other related disciplines)

5) Big data and machine learning
