IASE 2019 Satellite Conference
Decision Making Based on Data
13 – 16 August 2019, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


The International Association for Statistical Education (IASE) is pleased to announce that its 11th Satellite Conference will take place August 13-16 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia just before the 62nd World Statistics Congress (WSC62; August 18-23 in Kuala Lumpur). IASE Satellites bring 80-120 folks from around the world and the host country to share their passion, expertise and experiences in statistics education. Many delegates continue to the larger WSC, which has numerous sessions related to statistics education but attendees often come just for the Satellite meeting.

The 2019 Satellite conference will be organized around the broad theme “Decision Making Based on Data”. The conference will be hosted by statistics educators from Universiti Teknologi MARA and Universiti Putra Malaysia and supported by the Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM of Malaysia). We invite you to participate in the Satellite, to join us in sharing knowledge, questions, and ideas that help to advance statistics education, and learn from the work of esteemed colleagues from around the world. The conference will mix plenary talks, papers and poster sessions and hands-on preconference workshops.

Decision Making is the basis of free and responsible human actions. While our ancestors’ Decision Making was based on impressions and opinions, ours can be based on real data collected professionally. In some cases Decision Making can become a complex process, but giving people the right tools can help them successfully move through that process. Our Satellite Conference is committed to different models of Decision Making and to the interface between the agent making decisions and the data required. The Conference will bring together statisticians, statistics educators, practitioners, psychologists and even behavioral economists to consider issues related to using data to make decisions. It will offer something for everyone from students to researchers across disciplines; anyone with some prior exposure to statistics and probability theory.
