The Short Courses for the 61st ISI World Statistics Congress will take place from 13-15 July 2017 in Marrakech, Morocco. These short courses are organized by the ISI in cooperation with its Associations, with the support of the High Commission for Planning (HCP), the host organization for ISI2017. They will be held at facilities offered by HCP in Marrakech.
Registration for the short courses can be made using the same registration system for the main Congress (available at www.isi2017.org), and will close on 22 May 2017. Registration fees depend on course duration and country of residence of the participant – see table 1 below. These registration fees are kept as low as possible just to recover the costs.

A minimum of 10 registered participants is required for each course to be confirmed. Confirmation of short courses will be announced by 10 June 2017.
Short course registration fees are non-refundable after 22 May 2017, except for cases when cancellation due to insufficient participation occurs (see below). If cancellation of the registration is requested before 22 May 2017, a flat rate of 30% of the registration fee will be deducted to cover administrative and other costs incurred.
If a participant registered for a course that is not confirmed due to insufficient participation, the opportunity to switch registration to one of the confirmed short courses will be offered. Any difference between the cost of registration for the short course chosen to switch and the initial course will be settled before the final registration is confirmed. In case the participant decides not to switch courses, a full refund will be made of the registration fee paid.
