Conference on Small Area Statistics
(SAE 2011)
11th to 13th August 2011


The aim of the SAE 2011 is to stimulate the current research on small area estimation. The focus of the conference is either on theoretical and methodological developments or on practical applications of small area estimation methods.

Besides, the SAE 2011 is the official satellite conference of the ISI 2011 conference in Dublin. The SAE conference is part of the activities of the European Working Group on Small Area Estimation (EWORSAE; see top-links).




The SAE 2011 will take place in Trier, the oldest city of Germany. The picturesque valley of the river Moselle with its flourishing vineyards gave already the Roman emperors a good reason to stay in Trier. The best known building of this age is the Porta Nigra (Black Gate). Even after its 2000 years of history, it is nowadays entirely intact and a place to visit.

However, Trier has much more to offer than just the Porta Nigra. Three roman termae, an ancient roman theatre, and many more places are worth the visit.

Not only friends of history are attracted to Trier. Its medieval buildings around the market places invite for coffee and the local gastronomy offers meals in a large culinary spectrum.
