The 19th annual conference of the European Network for Business and Industrial Statistics was hosted by the Department of Probability Theory and Statistics at the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest and took place from the 2nd to 4th of September, 2019.
ENBIS (the European Network for Business and Industrial Statistics) is a platform where statistical practitioners and academic statisticians from Europe and beyond meet, exchange ideas and design new projects. Individual membership of ENBIS is free. Many ENBIS network activities are web-based, but some take place face-to-face. Spring meetings are always dedicated to a special topic (e.g. data mining, reliability, DOE, etc.), whereas the annual conference (which traditionally takes place every September) hosts presentations from a wide variety of sectors, ranging from manufacturing to service, from private to public sector. Conference contributions can consist of introductions and overviews (presenting an area of expertise to the uninitiated), reviews (presenting state of the art advances in scientic research), and best practice communications (sharing experiences of practitioners). In short: The annual conference features both theoretical and practical papers. In addition, people from industry and business are invited to present their problems and current solutions and pick the brains of other conference participants to find better solutions than their current ones.
The annual conference session topics include but are not limited to, the special areas of interest that exist within ENBIS (formalised in the so-called Special Interest Groups). The non-exhaustive list includes:
The annual conference also features distinguished keynote speakers, special thematic sessions, workshops and panel discussions, as well as pre- and post-conference courses and an industrial visit.
