Call for Tutorial Session Proposals

The tutorial sessions are aimed to acquaint R users with packages or techniques that are interesting for official statistics. Possible topics include report generation, data editing, survey design, survey sampling, weighting and estimation, disclosure control, building and integrating production systems, and working with big data.

Tutorial presenters are expected to prepare some exercises so participants can gain hands-on experience during the session. Participants are expected to bring their own laptops.

Authors are invited to propose an abstract for a one- or two-slot tutorial session. A single slot takes about three hours, including a 20 minute coffee break.
