26th Young Statisticians Meeting

Bohinj, Slovenia, September 30 to October 2, 2022

Meeting Announcement

We are pleased to announce that in 2022 the 26th Young Statisticians Meeting will take place at Hostel pod Voglom in Slovenia. Participating countries are Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Italy, and Croatia.
It has turned out that every event in this series of meetings successfully established a platform especially tailored for younger statisticians without major experiences in giving talks in English to an international audience. We always tried to enable them a nice first step into their life as a scientist without a large amount of stress. An interesting variety of different topics from the large scope of statistics should be covered and no limitation on any special topic will be given. The conference language will be English.
The Scientific Program will only include oral presentations of about 30 minutes each given by younger statisticians. Usually these are very well prepared and of excellent quality. Youngsters interested in participating should contact the representative of the according country from the International Program Committee.

Contact Information: Luka Kronegger (Local Organizer), Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana, Kardeljeva ploščad 5, 1000 Ljubljana
