International Statistical Seminar

Since 1983, the Basque Statistical Institute (EUSTAT) has been yearly organising an International Statistical Seminar, where usually have room two or three monographic topics of interest for different collectives of professionals, university staff, researchers, etc.

The International Statistical Seminar has the following fundamental aims:

  • Facilitate the professional recycling of teaching professionals and international research whose activity is related to Statistics, not only as a teaching or research subject, but also as a professional work field (in special, in Official Statistics), or as a user.
  • Encourage collaboration between EUSTAT and the University, especially with the Statistics Departments.
  • Bring to the Basque Country illustrious international professors and researchers in statistical subjects, in order to know at first-hand the most recent developments either in the field of Official Statistics or in basic and applied statistical research, serving at the same time as an impulse for the strengthening of the international and institutional relationships of EUSTAT.

The courses that have been celebrated since 1983 in the International Seminar framework, are later published (see International Seminar part in the Products Catalogue) both in the original language in which has been given and, except some cases, in Spanish, also existing a brief summary in Euskara.

Next, there is a chronological list of celebrated courses, that includes the language in which has been given, even a brief biography of the professors corresponding to the year in which the course took place.

Each of the titles is linked to the index of its corresponding publication. For last year's courses, the complete publication is offered in PDF format.(If you do not have Acrobat Reader, you can get it from Adobe).
