IASE 2017 Satellite Conference - Rabat, Morocco, July 11 - 14, 2017

The International Association for Statistical Education (IASE) is pleased to announce that its 10th Satellite Conference will take place July 11-14 in Rabat, Morocco, just before the 61st World Statistics Congress (WSC61; July 16-21 in Marrakesh in Morocco). IASE Satellites bring 80-120 participants from around the world and the host country to share their passion, expertise and experiences in statistics education. Many delegates continue to the larger WSC which has numerous sessions related to statistics education, but many come just for the Satellite meeting.

 

The 2017 Satellite conference will be organized around the broad theme *Teaching Statistics in a Data Rich World*. It is co-organized by IASE and IAOS (Int'l Association for Official Statistics) and will be hosted by the Faculty of Sciences at the campus of the University Mohammad V in the city of Rabat.

 

We invite you to participate at the Satellite, join us for sharing knowledge, questions, and ideas that can help to advance statistics education, and learn from the work of esteemed colleagues from around the world. The conference will mix plenary talks, paper and poster sessions, and pre-conference hands-on workshops in English, Arabic, and French.

The conference language is English, but we will accept a limited number of presentations in Arabic and French (preferably where slides are translated to English), to contribute to capacity-building.
