The RSS International Conference regularly attracts more than 600 attendees from over 40 countries providing one of the best opportunities for anyone interested in statistics and data science to come together to share knowledge and network.

We are delighted to be moving to Aberdeen for the first time in 2022 in a state-of-the-art brand new venue, P&J Live.

As usual, the conference programme will feature top keynote speakers, invited topic sessions, professional development workshops, contributed and rapid-fire talks, and poster presentations, as well as many opportunities for networking.

The initial list of invited topic sessions to be included on the conference programme has been confirmed.

Submissions are now open for contributed talks and posters; full details are available on the submissions page.

Submission Topics

Invited topic sessions are put together by an individual, group of individuals or a committee with a set of speakers who they invite to speak on a related topic. The session topic should ideally fit within one of the topic streams for the conference.  The proposed session is considered by the RSS conference board for inclusion on the programme.
