Programme & Agenda

High Level Agenda

CHoSC18 is a great opportunity for Commonwealth Heads of Statistics to discuss important statistical issues.  With links to Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM 2018), and underpinned by the Sustainable Development Goads (SDGs), the Conference will help to share good practice and new statistical innovations. We will also discuss future engagement, to ensure on-going collaboration across this unique group.

The overall theme is: ‘Towards a common future’.

At the Conference, we will focus on five themes:

  1. Leadership
  2. Blue Charter
  3. Big Data
  4. Education
  5. Future working

The Conference will be a mix of plenary, parallel and panel sessions.

There will also be a market place, including an interactive corner where new innovative statistical techniques will be demonstrated. Some of the market place stalls will link to the key themes and others will be stand alone.
