2019 Community Workshop



The New .Stat Suite – ‘From idea to reality’

17-19 June, 2019 – Paris, France

The SIS Collaboration Community workshop is in its 9th year and continues to go from strength to strength with a greater demand and increased importance of the collaboration on statistical activities between statistical organisations, both at national and international levels.

At this year’s workshop the Community will officially launch, in open source, the .Stat Suite product, a native SDMX modular set of components that aims to progressively cover the full data lifecycle (GSBPM: Design; Collect; Process; Analyse; Disseminate).

The first two and a half days, as with the previous workshops (held in March 2011March 2012April 2013April 2014March 2015April 2016April 2017 and April 2018), are open sessions and the OECD extends the invitation to interested groups and organisations who may be considering using .Stat Suite for their own organisation, interested in becoming part of and contributing to the open source community, and those who share similar objectives.

Day 1 (17 June), will be hosted at the OECD Conference Centre in the Boulogne Building, 46 Quai Alphonse le Gallo, 92100 Boulogne-Billancourt, France, from 1.30pm to 6pm. Days 2 and 3 (18-19 June), to take place at Station F, the largest start-up hub in the world and the center for the French Government push to make France the global leader in tech and innovation. A fitting location for the launch of the .Stat Suite!


The two and half days will include:

Showcasing a number of .Stat Suite projects aligned to our four principles.


A full day capacity stream for Data Producers – SDMX Data Modelling guidelines, a design thinking and collective usability testing workshop, and an A-Z of the .Stat Suite.

A full day capacity stream for Data Toolers – Introduction to the .Stat Suite Open Source Framework, .Stat Suite Architecture, and as SDMX is at the heart of the solution – working with Eurostat’s SDMX Source project.

This year we are also offering two separate Basecamp’s for:

  • Data Producers – Introduction to SDG DSD and hands-on exercises to create and disseminate SDG indicators in the .Stat Suite for dissemination and global reporting;
  • and, Data Toolers – Getting started with .Stat Suite as a Service, and hands-on set-up of the .Stat Suite for your organisation.
