Dear Colleague,

The Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) and Eurostat are pleased to invite you to the European Conference on Quality in Official Statistics (Q2012) which will be held in the "Megaron Athens International Conference Centre" in Athens, Greece, on 30 May - 1 June 2012.

The Quality conferences started in 2001 when the first Conference was held in Stockholm to develop further the conclusions of the Leadership Group on Quality. One of the recommendations of the Conference was to organize Quality Conferences biennially. So far, five Q-conferences have taken place: Q2001 in Stockholm, Q2004 in Mainz, Q2006 in Cardiff, Q2008 in Rome and Q2010 in Helsinki.

Similarly to its predecessors, the Q2012 Conference will offer participants a unique platform for high-level discussions on various types of quality issues and methodological aspects of statistical production. Q2012 will in particular focus on improving quality by the re-engineering of statistical systems and the innovations in the area of quality.

In addition, a series of short training courses will take place on 29 May 2012.

The Conference website offers information on the conference venue, accommodation, short courses and leisure-time activities and deadlines for submission of papers. Registration is now available. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Organising Committee by e-mail at q2012@statistics.gr

Looking forward to seeing you in Athens!


Andreas V. Georgiou
