Q2004 - the European Conference on Quality and Methodology in Official Statistics
· The goal of the conference is to bring together people representing the current thinking and new developments in the field of quality and methodology in Europe and in the world. Q2004 is a step towards the establishment of a regular European forum for methodological questions.
· The conference is organised as the first conference in a series of biennial scientific gatherings covering important methodological and quality-related topics of relevance to the European Statistical System (ESS).

· The response to the call for papers launched in mid 2003 exceeded all expectations: More than 260 abstracts have been submitted, twice as much as expected.
