ITACOSM is a bi-annual international conference organized by the Survey Sampling Group (S2G) of the Italian Statistical Society (SIS) whose aim is promoting the scientific discussion on the developments of theory and application of survey sampling methodologies in the fields of economics, social and demographic sciences, of official statistics and in the studies on biological and environmental phenomena.
Survey researchers and practitioners have always combined data from various data sources (auxiliary data from Censuses, Administrative registers, GIS data) to enhance sampling designs and estimation. Statistical data integration represents the new frontier of combining information from representative samples with data from multiple sources some of which may have uncontrolled selection mechanisms (non-probability samples, big data, smartphone data, integrated register data). ITACOSM2022 will provide a showcase for methods and applications that combine sources of data for better sampling strategies using classical survey methods or new data science tools such as Machine Learning methods.
ITACOSM2022 will include plenary (keynote) sessions on very relevant themes, specialized (invited) sessions on specific topics, and contributed sessions.
The Conference will be preceded by a one-day SHORT COURSE on “Survey Data Integration” held by Prof. Jae-Kwang Kim (Iowa State University) on June 7 in Assisi, Palazzo Bernabei.
Authors wishing to present a paper are invited to submit an abstract by February 14, 2022.
