GSS Conference 2020: Plans, parallel sessions and poster presentations

Given the uncertainty around the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we will be continually reviewing our plans for the conference and prepare contingencies as the situation develops.

The conference is still planned to go ahead and preparations are currently on track. We are hoping to attract a variety of parallel presentations for delegates to attend. On top of this we will also be showcasing the work undertaken by various organisations in the poster presentation exhibition room.

The parallel sessions are an excellent opportunity to share your knowledge of how statistics produced on a local scale can have a national or global impact.

The parallel sessions team are looking abstracts for consideration for the parallel sessions and poster presentations. We are asking all statisticians and data scientists across government departments, as well as other public and private sector organisations, who may be interested in presenting at the GSS Conference, to submit an abstract. Have you worked inter-departmentally to produce some statistics? Do your statistics aid the local communities? Have you seen a wider national and international impact of your statistics? The conference team would love to hear from you!

We are happy to accept abstracts for work that is not yet completed as long as it is due to be completed before the conference. Please note that submission or acceptance of a poster presentation does not guarantee a place at the conference.

Please submit your abstract by email to by Friday 31 July.
