On behalf of the Australasian Region of the International Biometric Society we invite you to join us for our biennial conference which will be held in Mandurah, Western Australia, from 1-5 December, 2013, at The Sebel Mandurah Hotel. Share your knowledge and trials and tribulations with other professional statisticians working in the biosciences, including agriculture, biomedical science and public health, bioinformatics, ecology, environmental sciences and forestry. Themes for the conference will be:
Spatial and temporal statistics
Linear mixed models
Complex genetic mixed models
Design of experiments
Generalized linear and additive models
The four-day conference, Monday 2 December to Thursday 5 December, will be preceded by two one-day short courses on Sunday 1 December:
Statistics for Spatio-Temporal Data - Noel Cressie
Vector Generalized Linear and Additive Models - Thomas Yee
We hope that you can attend and make this a wonderful meeting on the western frontiers of the Australasian Region. A preliminary draft (skeleton) of the programme (showing social and scientific events) is shown here. A final programme will be posted early November 2013 as well as special bus details between the Perth Domestic Airport and The Sebel Mandurah Hotel.
