The conference was organised by the project consortium and took place on 19-20 January 2006 at the Portuguese Statistical Office (INE), Lisbon, Portugal.
The meeting was attended by representatives from NSIs and academic collaborators as well as by the consortium. Day one was devoted to progress on the project to date, and culminated in a general discussion led by John Goldthorpe.
Day two began with a number of discussion groups addressing certain issues of principle, where all delegates were invited to contribute to the ongoing debates on a range of issues connected with the design, implementation and dissemination of the classification. Rapporteurs from each group then made brief reports to a plenary session.
All material from the conference is available to download.
