About the Conference

Important note: Due to COVID'19 and the various restrictions, ICORS 2020 had to be postponed by one year. The new dates of the conference are September 20-24, 2021. The conference will be held as a hybrid meeting (you can either come in person or attend virtually) in Vienna, and most keynote/invited speakers already agreed to attend. Please, save the new dates.

The International Conference on Robust Statistics (ICORS) has been an annual international conference since 2001. The aim of the conferences is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in robust statistics, data analysis and related areas. This includes theoretical and applied statisticians as well as data analysts from other fields, and leading experts as well as junior researchers and graduate students.

The ICORS meetings create a forum to discuss recent progress and emerging ideas in statistics and encourage informal contacts and discussions among all the participants. They also play an important role in maintaining a cohesive group of international researchers interested in robust statistics and related topics, whose interactions transcend the meetings and endure year round. The previous ICORS meetings were held in Vorau, Austria (2001), Vancouver, Canada (2002), Antwerp, Belgium (2003), Beijing, China (2004), Jyväskylä, Finland (2005), Lisbon, Portugal (2006), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2007), Antalya, Turkey (2008), Parma, Italy (2009), Prague, The Czech Republic (2010), Valladolid, Spain (2011), Burlington, USA (2012), St. Petersburg, Russia (2013), Halle, Germany (2014), Kolkota, India (2015), Geneva, Switzerland (2016), Sydney, Australia (2017), Leuven, Belgium (2018), and Guayaquil, Ecuador (2019), no ICORS conference in 2020.

ICORS 2021 is thus the 20th anniversary of the ICORS series. You are welcome to celebrate this event with us!
