The International Environmetrics Society (TIES), the Canadian Environmental Modelling Centre, and the Trent School of the Environment are co-organizing the 2023 TIES Regional Meeting, which will take place from 24 July to 29 July, 2023, just after the 64th World Statistics Congress (WSC64, 16-20 July in Ottawa, Canada); just after the 6th Spatial Statistics Conference (18-21 July in Boulder, Colorado) and one week before the 2023 Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM2023), 5-10 Aug in Toronto, Canada. The conference will be offered in a hybrid format to welcome both online delegates and those participating in-person in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada (90 minutes from Toronto and 2.5 hours from Ottawa by car) on the Trent University campus, located on the beautiful Otonabee River and centered in 1400 acres of the environmentally protected Trent Symons Campus Lands. Previous TIES Regional Meetings have brought 80-120 researchers from around the world and the host country to share their expertise, and experiences in statistics for, and of, the environment. Trent University is situated on the treaty and traditional territory of the Mississauga (Michi Saagiig) Anishnaabeg, which includes Curve Lake First Nation, Alderville First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, and the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, along the beautiful Otonabee River and centered in 1400 acres of the environmentally protected Trent Symons Campus Lands. Trent is a leader in Indigenous studies - the first university in Canada, and only second in North America to establish an academic department dedicated to the study of Indigenous peoples and Indigenous knowledge.
The broad theme of the conference is Breaking Down Barriers between Statistics and Environmental Science. The co-sponsorship of the meeting by Trent's School of the Environment and Canadian Environmental Modelling Centre is intended to bring environmental scientists to the joint meeting, and to hopefully foster collaborations and help both sides of the science see the challenges and successes of the other.The conference program will be a mixture of plenary talks, papers, and poster sessions, coupled with opportunities for conversation in person and online. In addition, several useful workshops are planned at for the first day several training-oriented such workshops aimed at graduate students.
