Australasian Region of the International Biometric Society

Welcome to the website for the Australasian Region of the International Biometric Society.

Our society comprises members of the International Biometric Society (IBS) that predominantly reside in Australia and New Zealand. Currently, membership numbers are about 200.

Professionally, we are statisticians, biometricians, mathematicians, scientists and managers, from academia, consulting or research and development, with biological applications being the common link. Biological applications include medicine, public health, ecology, environmental science, agriculture, genetics, microbiology and toxicology, amongst others.

Our employers range from local and commonwealth government agencies where there may be a team of biometricians employed, to private institutions which may only employ one biometrician.

We offer student scholarships and financial support to attend conferences on a regular basis. See our Prizes/Awards page.

Our main activity is our regional biennial conference.
