The Department of Statistics and the Department of Industrial & Operations Engineering of the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM), and the sponsoring organizations, the International Association for Statistical Computing (IASC) and the International Statistical Institute (ISI) are proud to announce the V Latin American Conference on Statistical Computing (LACSC 2020) to be held in Mexico City from June 9 to June 11, 2020.

LACSC is the annual conference of the Latin American Regional Section of the International Association for Statistical Computing (LARS-IASC). The main purpose of LACSC is to foster the progress of the theory, methods and practice of statistical computing in Latin America. In 2020 we will have the 5th edition of LASCSC in Mexico City, following its previous successful editions of 2016 in Gramado (Brazil), 2017 in Valparaíso (Chile), 2018 in San José (Costa Rica), and 2019 in Guayaquil (Ecuador).


LACSC 2020 will consider the presentation of papers that allow us to know the scientific and technological progress in all the areas related to the theory and applications of Statistical Computing, for the benefit of the Latin American community, becoming the most appropriate space for the academic and professional community of Latin America to exchange ideas, establish professional and academic contacts, and discuss development and research in the areas related to statistical computing. The presentation of papers as part of contributed, invited and poster (panels) sessions is thus considered. Selected peer reviewed papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of Computational Statistics , and authors are also encouraged to submit their papers to Computational Statistics & Data Analysis , the official journal of IASC.

The theme of our Conference is “Statistical Computing for Intelligent Decision Making”.
