About IASC

The International Association for Statistical Computing (IASC) was founded during the 41st Session of the ISI in 1977, as a Section of the ISI.

The objectives of the Association are to foster world-wide interest in effective statistical computing and to exchange technical knowledge through international contacts and meetings between statisticians, computing professionals, organizations, institutions, governments and the general public.

The Association is affiliated with the International Federation of Information Processing Societies (IFIP).

The Association pursues its objectives with special attention to developing countries. It promotes collaborative efforts within international, national, regional and other organizations and institutions having similar aims; it fosters evaluations of statistical computing techniques and programs and facilitates the exchange of computer programmes and meetings, particularly in conjunction with sessions of the ISI.

The IASC publishes the Journal Computational Statistics & Data Analysis and organises its own Conferences (IASC World Conferences, COMPSTAT in Europe, ARS Conferences on Statistical Computing in Asia) and Summer Schools as well as sections of the ISI Conferences. Information on the IASC life was available until 2010 in the ISI Newsletter and it has then replaced by a monthly news e-mailing.
