As part of the International Year of Statistics and Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013, the Operations Research Society of New Zealand (ORSNZ) and the New Zealand Statistical Association (NZSA) are holding a joint conference hosted by the University of Waikato in Hamilton. This conference incorporates both the 47th Annual ORSNZ Conference and the 64th Annual NZSA Conference.

The conference will start with a welcome function on Sunday 24 November. The conference sessions will run from Monday 25 November to Wednesday 27 November, with a conference dinner on Tuesday 26 November.

The conference organisers would like to announce a call for papers in any and all practical and theoretical aspects of Analytics, Operations Research (OR) and Statistics. Abstract submissions will close on 13 October.

We are organising a focused Analytics session to follow Kevin Ross’s plenary address on “Analytics at Fonterra”. Please email me, [email protected], if you would like to contribute to this.

We welcome entrants for the ORSNZ Young Practitioner Prize in OR/Analytics where we have $1000 in prize monies to distribute. The NZSA will also be awarding prizes for the best student presentations in statistics. We will also be supporting students through reduced conference fees and travel grants.
