After the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the International Workshop on Statistical Modelling, the Statistical Modelling Society and the IWSM2020 organizers have decided to organize the IWSM2021 on-line from 19 to 23 July 2021. It will be hosted by the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). There will be a short course on "Approximate Bayesian inference for spatio-temporal models" by Virgilio Gómez Rubio on July 21st.

The IWSM is one of the major activities of the Statistical Modelling Society, founded with the purpose of promoting and encouraging statistical modelling in its widest sense, involving both academic and professional statisticians and data analysts. Since its first edition, the spirit of the workshop has always been to focus on problems motivated by real-life data and on solutions that make novel contributions to the subject.

The atmosphere of the workshops is friendly and supportive, with no parallel sessions, with the aim of stimulating the exchange of ideas and experiences related to statistical modelling. As a sign of positive feedback, the IWSMs report many returning participants.
