Program Description: 
Australia and New Zealand are globally recognised for their frontier and leading research in statistical modelling in ecology. The MATRIX research program aims to advance research in ecological statistics through information/technology sharing and collaborations, and will address the current gaps and propose new methodologies in the following high-level advanced topics: species distribution modelling, point processes for ecological modelling, fisheries modelling, data integration, model-based clustering, computational statistics, and spatial capture recapture.

This research program will bring together renowned statisticians, quantitative ecologists, early career researchers and postgraduate students from universities and research institutes to meet and interact, and provide an environment that will promote collaboration to share current research methodologies, technologies and trends in statistical modelling in ecology.

Program Structure: TBD


  • Deadline: 11 November 2021
  • Registration is by invitation only
