Organizers and Sponsors


The International Environmetrics Society (TIES) is a non-profit organization aimed to foster the development and use of statistical and other quantitative methods in the environmental sciences, environmental engineering and environmental monitoring and protection. To this end, the Society promotes the participation of statisticians, mathematicians, scientists and engineers in the solution of environmental problems and emphasizes the need for collaboration and for clear communication between individuals from different disciplines and between researchers and practitioners. The Society further promotes these objectives by conducting meetings and producing publications, and by encouraging a broad membership of statisticians, mathematicians, engineers, scientists and others interested in furthering the role of statistical and mathematical techniques in service to the environment. TIES meetings are lively, informal gatherings that draw together many modelers interested in environmental problems.

International Statistics Institute

ISI-WSC-64 In 2008, TIES became one of the sections (now known as associations) of the International Statistical Institute (ISI) . The ISI is holding their 64th World Statistics Congress (WSC64) in Ottawa, July 16-20 2023, in the week before this TIES regional meeting.


The Canadian Environmental Modeling Centre (CEMC) is a consortium of researchers at Trent University who use and/or develop models for application in the environment. The Centre has been active for over two decades and encompasses research in a wide variety of environmental applications. The Centre fosters collaboration between modelers and experimentalists, facilitating interaction at the research planning level to help shape better experimental approaches and modelling outcomes. The Centre's breadth encompasses all types of model that relate to environmental issues.

Trent School of the Environment

The Trent School of the Environment (TSE) is a leader in Canada for environmental research and innovation, with unparalleled career and hands-on learning opportunities, world-class laboratories, and premiere campus nature areas. Numerous and varied degree options are taught by renowned faculty, renewable energy, biodiversity and food security.
