XXVI European Meeting of Statisticians
will be held in Torun, Poland,
from 24th till 28th of July 2006

The European Meetings of Statisticians are among main events for European and world statistics and probability. The meetings provide a natural forum for exchange of ideas and learning about the latest scientific developments. By principle the program is broad and appeals to researchers at any age and from all regions of Europe.

The town of Toruń, located over the biggest river of Poland, Vistula, is famous for being the place where Nicolaus Copernicus was born in 1473. Toruń's main attraction is "The Medieval Town of Toruń", as inscribed in The World Heritage List. The Old Town of Toruń is an example of a small historic trading city that preserves to a remarkable extent its original street pattern and outstanding early buildings, and which provides an exceptionally complete picture of the medieval way of life. At present The Old Town is a charming and lively place for entertainment and cultural events. Inexpensive!

The Nicolaus Copernicus University is the main organizing institution of the conference. The university serves to more than 40 thousands of students and its campus offers perfect conditions for the conference.
