Scientific Program

The major aim of ICOTS is to provide the opportunity for people from around the world who are involved in statistics education to exchange ideas and experiences, to discuss the latest development in teaching statistics and to expand their network of statistical educators. The conference will include plenary sessions with keynote speakers, invited speakers, contributed papers, workshops and forums, demonstration lessons, roundtable sessions, poster sessions, book and software displays, hands-on computer sessions and many opportunities for the communication and exchange of experiences and ideas. As the conference theme for ICOTS-6 is "Developing a statistically literate society", special sessions on statistics literacy are planned. These will include keynote speakers on statistics literacy and sessions and discussions of the role of statistics in a number of everyday contexts.
