Welcome to Vienna

Dear Colleagues, 

Statistics Austria and Eurostat are pleased to invite you to the European Conference on Quality in Official Statistics (Q2014) which will be held at the "Schönbrunn Palace Conference Centre" in Vienna, Austria on 3-5 June 2014. 

As a traditional biennial meeting point, the European Conference on Quality in Official Statistics has become a key conference in the European Statistical System (ESS) attracting participants from all over the world and bringing together experts from National Statistical Institutes, International Organisations and Academics. 

Similarly to its predecessors, Q2014 will offer participants a platform for high-level discussions on many diverse quality issues, the challenges on governance of statistical systems and innovative aspects of statistics production. The main topics of the conference will also cover specific ESS governance related issues like the organisation of the second round of peer reviews within the European Statistical System, quality aspects of policy relevant indicators as well as quality assurance in the implementation of the ESS Vision.

In addition, a series of short training courses will take place on 2 June 2014.

The conference website will be continuously updated and offers information on the conference venue, accommodation, training courses, local information, key dates and guidelines for the submission of papers.

If you have any questions, please contact the Organising Committee
by email at q2014(at)

Looking forward to seeing you in Vienna!
