LACSC 2021

LACSC 2021 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 América 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 contributing, 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 conference will be held virtually by the Whova platforms. Instructions will be provided further.
