Special Call for Requests for Support for Virtual Workshops and Conferences during 2021

The International Association of Survey Statisticians (IASS) will consider providing modest financial support for virtual workshops, conferences and similar events that

  • promote the study and development of the theory and practice of statistical surveys and censuses and associated subjects, and
  • foster interest in these subjects among statisticians, organizations, governments, and the general public in different countries of the world.

The proposed conference or workshop or similar event must be well governed, with a clear organising structure, and an ability to account for the funding provided.

Preference will be given to:

  • activities that promote sharing of knowledge and practice across a number of countries which would not normally have opportunities to share such knowledge and practice;
  • facilitating virtual attendance at such activities by people who would be otherwise unlikely to be able to attend, but whose presence would add appreciable value to the activity in terms of furthering IASS objectives; this attendance may be by a participant from a developing country, or a student, or it may be in terms of a teacher/ presenter who would particularly enrich the event, who would otherwise be unlikely to attend;
  • forms of assistance that supported IASS membership attendance at the event;
  • proposals giving the IASS visible credit for support provided.

To apply for support, please write to the IASS President Denise Silva (denisebritz@gmail.com), stating clearly the amount of funds requested and how the funds will be used. Applications should address the criteria set out above.

Applications for events to take place in 2021 should be received by June 15. Applicants will be informed of the outcome within 4 weeks from this date.  Please note that the total amount of funds available under this scheme will not exceed € 3,000 this year. We expect that this amount will usually be divided between the supported workshops or conferences.
