Welcome to ICES-V

The Fifth International Conference on Establishment Surveys (ICES-V) will be held in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 20-23, 2016. Continuing in the traditions of ICES-I to ICES-IV, ICES-V intends to explore new areas of establishment statistics as well as to reflect state-of-the-art at the time of holding the conference.

Situated for the first time in Europe, in the beautiful surroundings of the canton and city of Geneva, ICES-V is expected to be attractive to professionals and researchers in the area of statistics on businesses, farms and institutions throughout the world.

The conference is planned to include :

  • Strong offering of short courses on different levels (introductory, intermediate, advanced)
  • Introductory overview lectures on important and timely topics
  • Selection of invited and contributed papers
  • Two keynote speakers
  • Poster sessions and software demonstrations

All Conference activities will be held at the International Conference Center, Geneva. The participants will have a large variety of choices of hotels of different categories in Geneva. The participants will be provided with a free Geneva Transport Card upon check-in to their hotel, valid for the entire duration of their stay.

This site will be updated with new information as we progress in our steps towards the conference, so please do visit it occasionally. Alternatively, send an email to ices-v@bfs.admin.ch with the subject line “Please add to ICES list” to be kept abreast per email of events related to the ICES conference series.

The preceding conferences in the ICES series have regularly attracted around 350‑400 participants, and we trust that ICES-V – placed in Europe and close to Africa and Asia – will through the participation reflect the relevance of business, agricultural, economic and other establishment statistics in these geographic regions.

Dear visitor, we do hope that based on this information the conference will be of sufficient interest for you to contribute to it as an author, session organizer, sponsors, exhibitor or participant!

Looking forward to welcoming you in Geneva,

Boris Lorenc and Jean-Pierre Renfer, Conference Co-Chairs
