Methods and Practices for Statistics on Businesses, Farms, and Institutions
June 15–18, 2020
The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans, Louisiana






As the sixth in the series of international conferences on establishment statistics, ICES VI is designed to look forward at key issues, methods, and research findings pertaining to establishment statistics. The program committee invites you to submit a proposal for an invited paper session by June 13.

Invited Sessions

There are a limited number of slots for invited sessions. To ensure that all invited sessions are of a consistently high quality, organizers must provide sufficient information to clearly demonstrate the importance of the topic and quality of its contribution. The program committee encourages proposals addressing one or more related topics from various angles, incorporating presenters and perspectives from different countries and organizations.

Invited sessions will last 100 minutes, including floor discussion. The session organizer may choose between the following two formats:

  • Two papers (35 minutes each or one longer and one shorter presentation) + discussant (15 minutes) + floor discussions (15 minutes)
  • Three papers (25 minutes each) + discussant and floor discussions (25 minutes split among discussant and floor discussion)

Proposal Submission

Session organizers will be asked to submit a proposal that describes the session topic in detail, including the following:

  • Names of all session presenters and discussant
  • Titles and short descriptions of each presentation

Once you have a sufficient number of committed speakers, you can submit your proposal online until June 13.

Topic-Contributed Sessions

If a proposal is not accepted as an invited session, the organizer can resubmit the proposal as a topic-contributed session with four papers and a discussant. Information about the differences between invited and topic-contributed sessions and their formats will be available on the ICES 2020 website.


This conference will feature an edited volume. Presenters in invited sessions are highly encouraged to submit their manuscripts for publication consideration. Presenters might also be contacted by a member of the Publication Committee and invited to consider publishing their paper. All invited session presenters are encouraged to include their manuscripts in the conference proceedings.
