On 22nd June 2006, Idescat organised the Statistics Day, thus providing continuity with the previous editions organised by the Universitat de Girona (2005), the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (2004), the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (2003), the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2002) and the Universitat de Barcelona (2001).
