This conference is held every four years with the major objective being to provide the opportunity for statistics educators and practitioners from all over the world to exchange ideas and experiences, to discuss the latest developments in teaching statistics and research into statistics education, and to expend their network of statistics educators.

The Sixth ICOTS conference is to be held in Durban, South Africa from 7-12 July and is locally organised by the South African Statistical Association (SASA). The conference aims to aid in "developing a statistically literate society" via a programme of participative workshops and invited papers from both national and international speakers who are experts in their respoective fields. In addition to this, a number of contributed paper sessions will provide a forum for the dissemination and discussion of relevant statistics education issues, covering a wide range of topics.

The conference program provides ample time to allow delegates to network, renew old contacts and make new ones in an environment that will lead to deeper understanding of the field of statistics education.

The deadline for submitting proposals for contributed papers in 1 January 2002. The deadline for submitting proposals for demonstrations, forums, special sessions, and posters in 1 February 2002. See the conference webpage at http://www.beeri.org.il/icots6 for details and where and how to submit proposals and papers.
