The National Statistical Institute of Spain (INE) and Eurostat are pleased to invite you to the European Conference on Quality in Official Statistics (Q2016) which will be held in the “Círculo de Bellas Artes” in Madrid, Spain, on 1-3 June 2016.
In addition, a series of short training courses will take place on the day previous to the start of the Conference (31 May 2016).
Since their creation in 2001, these Conferences have become an excellent framework to present and discuss the progress and development of quality in official statistics, as well as to exchange methods and good practices between experts in different areas (statistical offices, international organisations, researchers and academics).
The Conference aims to cover relevant and innovative topics on quality ranging from the challenges and the new paradigm of quality in an information and knowledge-driven society including big data and multi-source statistics, to governance and management aspects like the ones linked to the ESS Vision 2020 or the lessons learned from 2013-2015 peer reviews in the European Statistical System. Furthermore, as an open forum of debate, it represents an opportunity to introduce innovation in the measurement and management of the quality in statistical domains and in specific statistical products.
