2022 Spanish Conference on Statistics and Operational Research

The conference had to be delayed a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and fortunately it was held in-person with great success in terms of participation. The extensive and high level scientific program has brought together more than 600 national and international experts from the academic world, industry, public health and administration at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Granada. There were 5 plenary talks with outstanding national and international speakers, among which were the two SEIO-FBBVA 2021 Medals. The program also consisted of 105 parallel sessions with a total of 451 oral communications, 4 poster sessions with 33 papers, 2 colloquia and 6 round tables. The 491 research papers presented were both methodological and applied, encompassing all topics related to Statistics and OR and Official Statistics. The SEIO Working Groups were highly involved in the organization of sessions, with 21 groups making proposals with a total of 53 organized sessions and 229 papers.

After almost three years since the last conference of the Spanish Statistical and Operations Research Society, the 39th Spanish Conference on Statistics and Operations Research (OR) and the 13th Days of Official Statistics (SEIO 2022) were held in Granada from June 7 to 10, 2022. The conference was organized by the Department of Statistics and OR and the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Granada, jointly with the Society for Statistics and Operational Research (SEIO: www.seio.es).
In today’s day society that generates huge amounts of data, its analysis, interpretation, and optimal decision-making are essential not only in the world of education, scientific research, public statistics and business, but in all areas of life, with the benefits that this entails for society in general. Currently, many of the Statistics and OR methods are the foundations of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence algorithms, based on the large amounts of data generated by new technologies. In addition, the Covid19 pandemic has highlighted the vital role of mathematical models of Statistics and Operations Research to help predict its evolution and optimize available resources. More than ever, this event has been a unique opportunity as a forum in which academicians, researchers and experts in Statistics and OR meet to exchange ideas and knowledge, and show their importance for the progress of the 21st century society.

In the round tables, different topics related to Statistics and OR were discussed, such as dissemination, knowledge transfer to the business sector, its importance in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic, connection between official statistics and universities, the sustainable development goals and statistics on causes of death. Very relevant professionals from the academic and business fields, as well as from public health and statistics, participated in these round tables.

In the first colloquium, the President of the Federation of European National Statistical Societies (FENSTAT) spoke about the new European  Statistician Accreditation System. In the second colloquium, the President of the scientific management area in Mathematical Sciences at the State Research Agency (AEI) reported on the different calls for research projects from the Government of Spain.

As in all the editions of the SEIO conferences, the Statistics Society and OR, in collaboration with the Ramiro Melendreras Foundation, awarded the Ramiro Melendreras Award to the best paper presented by a young researcher, for which 7 candidates were submitted.

The conference also had an exciting social program with a welcome drink and a choral concert by the ARRS 21 Choir at the Royal Monastery of San Jerónimo; a private visit to the Alhambra followed by a cocktail at Carmen de los Mártires, and the traditional closing gala dinner at La Mamunia. The central location of the venue on the Campus de Fuentenueva allowed the participants to comfortably enjoy all the attractions and services offered by historic and ancient city of Granada.
