ISEC2020, June 22-26 Sydney - abstract submission closes soon!

David Warton
Dear researchers at the interface between ecology and statistics,
Abstract submission closes on December 2 2019 for International Statistical Ecology Conference (ISEC2020, June 22-26, 2020, Sydney Australia).  Just two weeks!  So if you would like to speak, now is the time to get busy with your title/abstract.  Bursaries are available to presenters from developing countries.  Registration is also open.

Plenary speakers:
- Christl Donnelly (Imperial College, London)
- David Borchers (St Andrews)
- Di Cook (Monash)
- Kiona Ogle (Northern Arizona)
- Mark Bravington (CSIRO)

Invited sessions on:
- Reproducible Science with Fiona Fidler (Melbourne), Shinichi Nakagawa (UNSW Sydney)
- Methods for high throughput community data with Doug Yu (East Anglia)

ISEC2020 is a family-friendly event - we plan to organise child care at the conference venue for anyone travelling with young children.
The first day of the conference is a Skills Showcase, with 90-minute introductory tutorials on deep learning, high-dimensional data visualisation, acoustics, spatial capture-recapture, multivariate analysis, hidden Markov models, point processes, and more.  We have several spots left in our Skills Showcase program - send us your ideas!

Do you want to do some science while at the conference?  We plan to organise lunchtime round-table discussions on topical issues, where each table takes a topic and works towards a plan for a paper they could write to address it.  Outcomes will be reported to delegates in a plenary session, and paper plans will be submitted to Methods in Ecology and Evolution as an ISEC2020 Special Issue proposal.  Send us your ideas for discussion topics at mailto:[hidden email].
