100 year jubilee of the Finnish Statistical Society

event date: June 8-9, 2023The Society celebrated its honourable centenary in 2020. The coronavirus epidemic prevented the celebration of the anniversary in 2020 and after. We are celebrating the wonderful history of the Society at the 100+ anniversary celebration in Helsinki on June 8-9, 2023.

The event location is Porthania of the University of Helsinki, Yliopistonkatu 3. 

The main speakers of the anniversary celebration are Deborah Ashby (Imperial College, President of the Royal Statistical Society 2019–2020) and Jouni Kuha (London School of Economics and Political Science). Due to the jubilee year, the topics of the presentations include not only current research and the new online statistical dictionary (to be published shortly by the Society), but also the history of the Society and the history of statistics in Finland.

The presentations on both mornings will be held in English, whereas the afternoons are in Finnish. Participants will receive a copy of the Statistical Dictionary when they arrive on June 8th, as long as there are still copies left at that time.
