Welcome to the 62nd ISI World Statistics Congress 2019!

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 62nd ISI World Statistics Congress 2019 (ISI WSC 2019), to be held on 18-23 August 2019 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Malaysia is honoured to host this prestigious biennial event of the ISI.  This Congress will be jointly organised by the Department of Statistics Malaysia, Bank Negara Malaysia and Malaysia Institute of Statistics, and supported by the Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), an agency under the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia.

The ISI WSC 2019 will bring together about 2,500 delegates, comprises statistical researchers, academia, industry practitioners, analysts and policymakers, from all over the world to share insights on development in statistical science and to advance application of statistics for discovery, innovation and decision making.  About 1,500 papers in various statistical disciplines and applications will be presented and discussed over a period of five days.  In addition to the Scientific Programme, satellite seminars, meetings and short courses will also be organised as the pre- and post-congress events.  We believe that such a gathering of great minds will definitely surface great things!

Apart from the technical aspect of the Congress, we have also lined up a series of social programmes to allow you to discover and experience the diversity of Malaysia.  These diversities range from our beautiful landscapes to the exotic cuisines, from our multi-racial community to the diverse cultures and religions.  "Malaysia, Truly Asia" - the slogan for tourism in Malaysia rightly indicates where all the colours, flavours, sounds and sights of Asia come together.

The Congress venue, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, is strategically located in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre, overlooking the iconic PETRONAS Twin Towers and the 50-acre KLCC Park.  All the pre- and post-Congress events will be held at the Sasana Kijang of Bank Negara Malaysia.

With that, we wish to extend our very warm welcome to you to the 62nd ISI WSC 2019.  We also look forward to receiving you and your accompanying persons to Malaysia.



Yours sincerely,
