ISBIS (the International Society of Business and Industrial Statistics) holds a major international Symposium every two years, focusing on important statistical issues relating to quality and productivity improvement and decision-making at all levels of business, industry, financial and health services. Recent Symposia were held at the Azores and Prague.

The next international Symposium, ISBIS-2010, will be held at St. Bernardin, Adriatic Resort & Convention Center in the coastal resort of Portoroz (Portorose) in the Slovenian Republic, during July 6 - 9, 2010, preceded by a Workshop day on July 5, 2010.

Apart from its broad coverage of topics, ISBIS-2010 will feature two particular areas of activity: an introduction to Image Analysis and its applications, by one of the two co-founders of the subject, Professor Jean Serra; and current and future developments in handling large and complex data sets, featuring a closing plenary address by Dr Lee Edlefsen, a renowned leading thinker and practitioner in the area.

There will also be sessions of particular interest to younger members of the statistical profession, organised by the ISBIS Young Statisticians group, y-BIS.

The ISBIS Biennial Symposia feature Discussion papers sponsored by the Society’s journal ASMBI (Applied Stochastic Models in Business and Industry).

Authors of invited and contributed papers will have the opportunity to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in a special issue of the Society's journal, Applied Stochastic Models in Business and Industry.
