The annual International Workshop on Statistical Modelling (IWSM) whose 27th edition will be held in Prague from 16–20th July 2012, is the major activity of the Statistical Modelling Society which was founded with the purpose of promoting and encouraging statistical modelling in its widest sense. With the workshop, we try to address people working in academia but also individuals outside research who solve applied problems based on data. Having many returning participants we believe that the workshops are friendly and supportive, and we particularly encourage students to attend and to present, giving them the opportunity to speak to many of the world´s experts on statistical modelling. For information on the society, related journal Statistical Modelling and history of the conference, please see the society webpage.

Submission of abstracts from all areas of statistical modelling is encouraged, see instructions for authors. All students presenting the paper at IWSM (both oral and poster presentations) compete for one of three student awards. Students who have no other means of financial support can also apply for one of two travel grants kindly provided by the Statistical Modelling Society.
