Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre


Welcome message from the ISI President I have the honour and privilege of inviting you to attend the 62nd ISI World Statistics Congress (WSC) that will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 18th-23rd August, 2019.

The biennial World Statistics Congresses of the International Statistical Institute (ISI) and its seven Associations are very special events, bringing together the vibrancy and diversity of the international statistical community in a congress full of invigorating presentations, discussion, gatherings, greetings, connections and networking. ISI2019 will feature a fruitful and varied scientific programme of Invited and Special Invited Paper Sessions, Special Topic Sessions, Contributed Paper Sessions and Posters. The satellite conferences of Associations and ISI partners, the Short Courses, Workshops and many meetings of ISI, Association, Special Interest and Regional Networking groups, all serve to enrich an extraordinary congress experience within the welcoming environment of an energetic and dedicated local community.

In between meetings and conferencing, join us to enjoy the stunning environs of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), the venue in the centre of Kuala Lumpur for ISI2019, with the beautiful park of trees and lakes, the wonderful nightly displays of choreographed fountains, lights and music, the many restaurants and extensive shops, all overlooked by the amazing silver towers. The ISI2019 social programme, of opening and closing ceremonies, evening entertainment and the gala dinner, will reflect the rich and varied Malaysian culture and the Malaysian love of community celebrations of all festivals. And the many beguiling landscapes of Malaysia will tempt you to explore more, before or after the conferencing.

Since 2014 I have attended three conferences in Kuala Lumpur – two Malaysian Statistics Conferences, and the first ISI Regional Statistics Conference. All were characterized by enthusiasm, commitment, and quality of organization and preparation. ISI2019 promises to be a truly memorable congress for the whole international statistical community – across academia, industry, government, and all statistical interests, countries and age groups.

Come and join us in the WSC statistical, cultural and collegiate experience that will be ISI2019!
