The ICCSSA Board has decided that over the next few years the ICCSSA convention would be replaced by regular ICCSSA seminars.
On 24 July 2015 ICCSSA held its first breakfast seminar. The talk was given by Professor Paul Fatti on “Big Data, Data Science and Analytics – The End of Statistics”. It was well received and initiated a very lively discussion. The event was sponsored by SAS and SACNASP.
On 4 December 2015 ICCSSA held its second breakfast seminar. The talk was given by Professor Alfred Stein from the Netherlands on "Spatial Big Data".
