      Spatial statistics for production ecology

      Remote Sensing
      PE modelling

      19 - 21 April 1999

      A three days conference in Wageningen

      Production ecology (PE) aims at competitive production in an environmentally
      friendly way. Many studies in production ecology may benefit from spatial
      statistics. Examples include interpolation of agricultural models to field or
      regional scales, quantification of uncertainty in Geographical Information
      Systems, and use of remote sensing for decision support. Spatial statistics
      quantifies uncertainty and supports problem solving in issues of scale and
      spatial modeling. The aim of this conference is to present up-to-date
      develop-ments in spatial statistics for PE, to present on-going research and
      to discuss important problems to be addressed in the near future.

      Distinguished national and international speakers will be invited, and PhD
      research students from the CT de Wit Graduate School of Production Ecology
      and others will present their most recent advances.

      Scientific Committee

      A. Stein (Chairman)
      E.A. Addink
      A.K. Bregt
      J.G.P.W. Clevers
      J. Goudriaan


      Each day a different aspect of spatial statistics will be discussed.

      19 April - Spatial statistics and Geographical Information Systems for
      decision support (convenor: prof. A.K.Bregt)
      20 April - Spatial statistics and agricultural modelling for production
      ecology (convenors: prof. J. Goudriaan and prof. A. Stein)
      21 April - Spatial statistics and remote sensing for decision support
      (convenors: dr. J. Clevers and prof. S.M. de Jong)


      There is room for presentations by researchers. Those who wish to present a
      paper or a poster should provide an abstract by 1 December 1998. Notification
      of acceptance is given at 1 January 1999. Deadline for inclusion of the text
      in the pre-proceedings is at 1 April 1999.


      Pre-proceedings are compiled in three volumes, one for each theme, and will
      be delivered at the start of the conference. The papers presented will be
      reviewed and accepted papers will be published with Alfred Stein as the Guest
      Editor in a special issue of Environmental and Ecological Statistics,
      Editor-in-Chief, G. P. Patil.


      The conference will take place in the 'Haak-zaal' at the Wageningen
      International Conference Center (WICC), from 19 to 21 April 1999.


      The fee for three-days attendance of the congress is Dfl. 250,-. One-day
      registration is possible at the cost of Dfl. 95,-. Fee includes access to the
      full congress program, a copy of the pre-proceedings, coffee and tea.


      Send attached registration form to the conference secretariat, Ms. T. van
      Hummel, Agricultural University, Dept. of Environmental Sciences, PO Box 37,
      6700 AA Wageningen, The Netherlands.
