Call for papers

Presentation of the Conference

The current irreversible digitalisation process of society poses new technical challenges for private and public decision-makers. To avoid making decisions based only on intuitions and feelings, any choice must make the most effective use of the growing amount of information available. Private companies and central or local government agencies need to develop in-house expertise in the statistical analysis of this information. This conference aims to discuss how applied statistics can support private and public decision-makers in their decision-making process and be the forum where decision-makers express their knowledge needs to the audience of applied statisticians. As in its tradition, the ASA conference is, however, open to contributions on statistics in its various fields of application, even outside the more specific topic chosen for this specific edition.

Conference session topics

Conference session topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas of special interest:

Decision making

Submission of abstracts and contributed papers

Contributed papers are welcome. Concerned scholars are invited to submit to the Scientific Committee an abstract in English, of no more than 300 words, with title, authors’ name, company or institution they belong to, and email included.

Authors are also invited to submit a 4-6 page short paper in addition to the abstract of their presentation. Selected short papers will be published, after peer review, in the Book of Short Papers of the ASA Conference 2022 - Data-Drive Decision Making, with ISBN.

The official conference languages will be Italian and English. A good practice would be to write the slides in English, so that non-Italian participants can follow all presentations.
