Due to the uncertainty caused by the current situation with the COVID-19 outbreak, COMPSTAT 2020 is postponed. We apologize for any inconveniences caused by this. The 24th International Conference on Computational Statistics will take place at the University of Bologna, Italy, 29-31 August 2021. The satellite meeting, CSDA & EcoSta Workshop on Statistical Data Science (SDS 2020), is also postponed for 1-2 September 2021. The current submissions, registrations and sessions have been moved directly to the new online tools. The new website is COMPSTAT 2021.

Aims and Scope
