International Conference on Teaching Statistics
ICOTS history started in 1982 when the Education Committee of ISI decided to held an International Conference on Teaching Statistics. The Conference is held every four years in a diverse choice of location.
- ICOTS-1 : 1982 : Sheffield, UK
- ICOTS-2 : 1986 : Victoria, Canada
- ICOTS-3 : 1990 : Dunedin, New Zealand
After ICOTS-3 it was clear that an international association for statistics education was needed, and this resulted in the creation of the IASE as a section of ISI in 1991. The IASE has since organized the conference.
