The 2017 ICSA China Conference with the Focus on Lifetime Data Science was successfully held on July 2 - July 5, 2017 in the beautiful Jilin City, Jilin Province, P.R. China. The conference, which had 2 keynote sessions and 24 invited sessions, attracted more than 120 researchers around the world. "The meeting had a focus on lifetime data science but attracted people from many other related areas," said Prof. Jianguo Sun, the Chair of the Scientific Committee of the 2017 ICSA China Conference at Jilin.

The International Chinese Statistical Association (ICSA) was officially founded at the 1987 JSM held in San Francisco, CA, it was registered in Delaware on the 8th of August in 1988. As a result, the ICSA was qualified for a non-profit organization under the 501(3) status. The ICSA's predecessor was the Chinese Statistical Association in America (CSAA), it was created by a group of Chinese statisticians in early 1970s in the United States.
