Abstract: 

This paper, after considering the reasons and aims that gave origin to the International Conference on Teaching Statistics (ICOTS), traces the line of thought along which the Conference developed from 1982 to 2002. This is done by applying textual data analysis to the titles of the papers published in the Proceedings of the first five Conferences, and to the titles that were on the International Programme Committee Web site on October 27, 2001. Knowing past and present enables one to present suggestions about possible future Conference scientific developments.
