ANZSC2020 has been postponed until 2021

After careful consideration and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, we had to make the difficult decision to postpone ANZSC2020/OZOCTS until next year, 5-9 July 2021. Government restrictions on meetings and travel as well as travel bans issued by universities, associations and companies would have made it impossible to hold a successful conference this July. Rescheduling the event will enable us to provide the experience that our delegates, exhibitors and sponsors expect from a statistical conference held in Australia.

Having spent the past two years preparing for the conference and working closely with speakers, exhibitors and event partners, we’re genuinely disappointed not being able to host the Conference as planned. We recognise all the hard work that you have put into preparing your presentations and travel for ANZSC and OZCOTS and we sincerely hope that you will still be able to join us in 2021.

For options regarding your travel arrangements, please contact your travel provider. Most airlines currently offer a credit for otherwise non-refundable flight bookings. Many hotels are issuing refunds or credits even if bookings were non-refundable. If you have booked through the Conference website, you can move your booking to 2021 or we can organise a refund. Please reach out to us on for arrangements.

We would like to thank all our presenters, sponsors and business partners for their ongoing support, open discussions and encouragement. We will continue to work with you to finalise the details and will share more information about our plans in the coming weeks.

We look forward to seeing you in the Gold Coast in 2021.

Welcome to the ANZSC 2021 Conference

The organising committee warmly invites you to the 2021 Australian and New Zealand Statistical Conference, which will take place on the Gold Coast from the 5th to the 9th of July 2021.

This conference brings together four leading statistical communities in the region – the Statistical Society of Australia, the New Zealand Statistical Association, the International Institute of Business Analysis (Special Interest Group for Business Analytics), and the Australian Conference on Teaching Statistics.

The aim of this conference is to bring together a broad range of researchers and practitioners across a variety of statistical disciplines to facilitate the exchange of theory, methods and applications.

With these four societies working together there will be strong program components of interest to a wide diversity of academic, government, and industry colleagues. This includes the full spectrum of delegates from those advancing theoretical methodology to those working on industry applications (in traditional and non-traditional statistical areas). Of particular interest is how Big Data continues to impact all of us.

Information on Keynote Speakers and the Conference program will be available shortly so watch this space for updates.

The conference will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) situated in the heart of the Gold Coast. From GCCEC, Surfers Paradise (the social hub of the Gold Coast) is 5km to the North, the Star Casino and Pacific Fair are immediately to the South (the largest regional shopping and dining destination in Queensland), the beach (Broadbeach) is just ten minutes walk, and the Broadbeach restaurant complex is immediately to the East (short 5 minutes walk). Social tours can easily be made to the rainforest (such as Tambourine National Park and World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park), to places of Aboriginal Indigenous significance, to Stradbroke Island, and to Australia’s greatest theme parks.

ANZSC2021 promises to be a truly amazing experience on both a professional and a social level.

We look forward to seeing you on the Gold Coast in 2021!
