The International Biometric Conference scientific programme is made up of three main components: invited sessions, contributed sessions and short courses.
Invited sessions for the conference have been selected. Seventeen (17) invited sessions, selected by the International Program Committee, will be presented at the IBC as well as twelve (12) invited sessions, selected by the WNAR Program Committee. The topics of invited sessions, both IBS and WNAR, are listed on the website.
Four very exciting short courses will be offered on Sunday 10 July, prior to the start of the IBC. The list of confirmed short courses is posted on the website and individuals may now register for short courses.
The call for contributed sessions has ended and the list of contributed sessions will appear on the website on or around 15 May. Check the website frequently for updates.
Showcase sessions and special sessions organized by both IBS and WNAR also make up the scientific program. These include Best Papers in Biometrics and JABES, ISI/IBS Joint Session, a Statistics in Practice Session, and the Young Statistician’s Showcase.
The IBC 2016 offers a very robust scientific program for anyone with an interest in biometry. Registration is now open and we encourage you to register early!
The mission of the IBS is “to promote the development and application of statistical and mathematical theory and methods in the biosciences, including agriculture, biomedical science and public health, ecology, environmental sciences, forestry, and allied disciplines.” Contributions at the conference are therefore welcome across a wide range of both methodological topics and application areas relevant to the mission of the IBS.
