Spatial statistics society
We are very excited to announce that what started as a series of informal discussions during Spatial Statistics 2013 in Columbus, Ohio, is now taking shape - the start of a spatial statistics society!
The society aims to create a community and network of scientists who are interested in the theory and application of spatial statistics in the widest sense, including all physical and social/economic domains.
An ad-hoc committee consisting of the following members Alfred Stein, Edzer Pebesma, Kate Calder, Renato Assuncao, Benedikt Graler, and Denis Allard has been formed and has taken some preliminary first steps.
During the conference, Spatial Statistics 2017, we will have further discussions about shaping the society, specifically the organizational strategy and formally electing a steering committee.
