The Australasian Applied Statistics Conference is an excellent opportunity to liaise with fellow statisticians within the agricultural, biological and environmental sciences and to keep abreast of the most recent developments in statistics within this context. Join us for AASC18 and pre-conference workshops, being held from 3rd – 7th December 2018 at the Millennium Hotel Rotorua, Central North Island, New Zealand.

The themes of AASC18 are big data analytics, reproducible research, history of ANOVA and REML, experimental design, statistical consultancy in the biosciences, and applied statistics. Our exciting group of invited speakers and workshop presenters (Chris Auld, Peter Baker, Salvador Gezan, Roger Payne, Alison Smith, Robin Thompson, Linley Jesson, Ruth Butler, Gabriela Borgognone and Helene Thygesen) will help explore these themes in various contexts.

Rotorua is one of the most unique tourism destinations in the world: a geothermal paradise and a Māori cultural heartland. Rotorua is renowned for being New Zealand’s adventure playground, and offers a wide range of geothermal, cultural, adventure, and outdoor activities.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rotorua for AASC18.

David Baird (Chair), Chris Triggs (Treasurer), Vanessa Cave (Secretary)
