The International Biometric Society warmly invites you to the XVIII International Biometric Conference in Victoria, Canada, traditional territory of the Lekwungen First Nations and capital city of British Columbia. Victoria is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada’s Pacific Coast. The conference will be held at the Victoria Conference Centre, adjacent to the famous Empress Hotel. Victoria is named the City of Gardens and has easy access to recreational activities such as kayaking, whale watching, hiking, and much more.
