Welcome to the website of the
Conference of European Statistics Stakeholders, 2018


The Conference of European Statistics Stakeholders 2018 will be held in Bamberg, Germany on 18–19 October 2018. It is co-organised by Eurostat, the European Central Bank, the European Statistical Advisory Committee, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the Federation of European National Statistical Societies, the Federal Statistical Office of Germany, the German Statistical Society, the Deutsche Bundesbank and the University of Bamberg.

Launched for the first time in 2014, with the idea of creating a platform for discussing statistics methodology, results, challenges and best practices between the producers of European statistics, researchers, as users and other stakeholders, the CESS 2018 continues to offer the opportunity for networking and interacting among stakeholders of European Statistics from science, academia, statistical producers and societal groups.

"Social Europe" is the main theme theme of the conference. Its aim is to share recent developments and innovative solutions for reflecting and explaining complex economic and social phenomena with European statistics and to discuss challenges associated with their production and use. The Conference will be organised according to three thematic blocks - Statistics, Science and Society.

You are invited to participate to this conference by submitting an abstract/or paper highlighting the relevant thematic blocks by 31 May 2018.

We would like to draw your attention to the publication opportunities for CESS 2018 authors: Selected papers for CESS 2018 will be included within a Conference publication released as an e-publication by Eurostat. Papers will be subject to a peer review by members of the Scientific Programme Committee prior to the conference. Authors of selected papers will be invited to extend their papers for possible publication in the ECB Statistics Paper Series (see SPS guidance on ECB website).
