It will gather researchers and practicians from private and public statistical institutes who design and use surveys in various fields such as political and social sciences, marketing, health.
It follows the seven previous conferences on this topic organised by the SFdS since 1997. Following the suggestion of the association « Surveys, Models and Applications/Enquêtes, Modèles et Applications », the SFdS organized the first conference on survey sampling at Rennes, on July 1997. This scientific meeting was very successful and entailed the organisation of the other ones at Bruxelles and Lille on 2000, followed by Autrans (2002), Québec (2005), Marseille (2007), Tanger (2010) and finally, Rennes on 2012.
