Welcome to Finland

Dear Collegues,

Thank you for the participation in the Q2010 Conference in Helsinki, Finland.

Papers and presentations are being posted to the site (Abstracts and papers).

Photos of the Q2010 Conference in Helsinki have been posted to the site (Conference photos).


Dear Colleague,

The quality conferences started in 2001 with the calling of the first conference in Stockholm, to implement the results of the Leadership Group on Quality. One of the recommendations of the Conference was to organize a quality conference biennially. So far, four conferences have been arranged: Q2001 Stockholm, Q2004 Mainz, Q2006 Cardiff and Q2008 Rome.

Similarly to its predecessors, the Q2010 Conference will offer participants a platform for high-level discussions on various types of quality issues and methodological aspects of statistics production. The Q2010 will in particular focus on meeting current and future challenges for reengineering the statistical business processes of the European Statistical System.

In addition, a series of short courses will be arranged on 3 May 2010.

On this website you will find all the necessary information on the conference venue, accommodation, deadlines for submission of papers, short courses and leisure time activities.

If you have any questions, please contact the Organising Committee by email at q2010@stat.fi.

Looking forward to seeing you in Helsinki!
