2023 IMS International Conference on Statistics and Data Science (ICSDS)


  • Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisboa
  • 18 – 21 December 20237

In response to the call from the 2021 IMS Survey report to expand membership from emerging areas of data science, underrepresented groups, and from regions outside North America, the IMS has launched the annual IMS International Conference on Statistics and Data Science (ICSDS). 

The objective of ICSDS is to bring together researchers in statistics and data science from academia, industry, and government in a stimulating setting to exchange ideas on the developments of modern statistics, machine learning, and broadly defined theory, methods, and applications in data science. 

Following the success of 2022 ICSDS in Florence Italy, December 13-16. 2022, the 2023 ICSDS is scheduled to be held on December 18-21 in Lisbon, Portugal. There will be again student paper award competition, in addition to plenary sessions, and invited, contributed and poster sessions. Young researchers are particularly encouraged to participate, as a portion of the invited sessions will be designated for young researchers. 

We look forward to seeing you in Lisbon in December 2023! 

Regina Liu (IMS Past-President) and Annie Qu (IMS Program Secretary)
