5th Malaysia Statistics Conference – MyStats 2017
From Data to Knowledge: The Journey
Call for Papers
Venue: Sasana Kijang, Bank Negara Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA
Date: 28 & 29 November 2017 (Tuesday & Wednesday)
Bank Negara Malaysia (Central Bank of Malaysia), the Department of Statistics, Malaysia and Malaysia Institute of Statistics are jointly organising the 5th Malaysia Statistics Conference (MyStats 2017), to be held on 28 & 29 November 2017 at Sasana Kijang, Bank Negara Malaysia.
MyStats, since its inception in 2012, provides a great opportunity for statisticians, researchers, policymakers and academia to be actively involved in discussing the methodology, innovation and usage of statistics to support analysis and decision making. With the theme "From Data to Knowledge: The Journey", MyStats 2017 aims to provide an avenue for the compilers, particularly DOSM, BNM and other government agencies, to share on data compilation, management and dissemination; while for the users, such as policy makers, researchers and academicians, to discuss on the translation of these data into useful knowledge. A better understanding of the processes and challenges of both sides, i.e. compilers and users, with respect to data collection and usage will facilitate greater collaboration and stronger commitment to improve the respective processes, tap the opportunities for improvement, and/or address the relevant issues. The conference is structured with one main session, several parallel sessions and panel discussion session.
The Programme Committee is now inviting you to contribute papers for the conference. We encourage statisticians, researchers and practitioners to showcase the researches or studies which have been successfully completed and findings that were used or could be useful for decision making or innovation at the conference. Participation in the conference is FREE.
Closing date for submission of abstract: 15 September 2017 (Friday)
Closing date for submission of final paper: 13 October 2017 (Friday)
We would also appreciate it if you could share this information with your colleagues and other potential contributors. We look forward to meeting you in Kuala Lumpur.
