The Colorado State University Statistics Department and the ASA Section on Statistics and the Environment (ENVR) are pleased to announce the joint Graybill/ENVR conference “Modern Statistical Methods for Ecology”, to be held on September 7-10, 2014, in Fort Collins, Colorado. This also serves as the 2014 biennial ENVR Workshop.
Full information is available on the website http://www.stat.colostate.edu/graybillconference/
Five prominent keynote speakers will be joined by a larger group of invited speakers to bring together some of the top researchers in this area while promoting interactions among all participants including junior researchers and graduate students. The conference also includes a short course on hierarchical random effects models using MCMC, and acontributed poster session. Students participating in the poster session are eligible for funded awards, and all students–regardless of the contest–should inquire in advance with conference organizers to obtain partial travel funding supported by the NSF.
There will also be opportunities for various activities in the region, including the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. CSU and ENVR look forward to seeing you there.
