Other Biometry/Statistics Societies
- American Statistical Association
- Founded in 1839 to foster excellence in the use and application of statistics to the biological, physical, social and economic sciences, ASA is a leader in promoting statistical practice, applications, and research; publishing statistical journals; improving statistical education; and advancing the statistics profession.
- Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland
- Originally established in 1987 as the Scottish Agricultural Statistics Service (SASS). BioSS is a UK leader with an international reputation in the field of mathematics and statistics applied in the biological sciences. BioSS contributes research, consultancy and training to agricultural and biological research organisations in Scotland and plays a leading role in collaborative research programmes with UK universities. In addition they have expanding links with the private sector through the provision of high-level statistical and mathematical skills.
- Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability
- The Bernoulli Society was founded in 1973. It is an autonomous section of the International Statistical Institute, ISI. According to its statutes, the object of the Bernoulli Society is the advancement, through international contacts, of the sciences of probability (including the theory of stochastic processes) and mathematical statistics and of their applications to all those aspects of human endeavour which are directed towards the increase of natural knowledge and the welfare of mankind.
- Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies (COPSS)
- Whereas the various societies have distinct characteristics they also have some common interests and concerns that can benefit from coordinated efforts. The purpose of the Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies (COPSS) is to work on shared problems and improve intersociety communication. Possible activities for COPSS include but are not limited to the coordination of the calendar of statistical meetings, the preparation of material to inform students about statistics when they are choosing a profession, the sponsoring of lecture series and prizes, and the production of statistical directories.
- German Society for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology
- Institute of Mathematical Statistics
- The IMS Bulletin publishes the IMS Meetings' programs and abstracts, and an international calendar of statistical events, as well as articles and news of interest to IMS members and to statisticians and probabilists in general. Choice of material for our on-line version is based on either its timely nature or on it being judged to be particularly suited to the access and linking capabilities which are available through World Wide Web.
- International Association For Statistical Computing
- IASC is the only international organization caring about the theory, methods and practice of statistical computing. We work to share and advance statistical computing techniques by facilitating the exchange of information and by stimulating evaluations, research and development.
- International Biometrics Society (IBS)
- IBS Western North American Region (WNAR)
- International Environmetric Society
- The objectives of the Society are to foster the development and use of statistical and other quantitative methods in the environmental sciences, environmental engineering and environmental monitoring and protection. To this end, the Society promotes the participation of statisticians, mathematicians, scientists and engineers in the solution of environmental problems and emphasizes the need for collaboration and for clear communication between individuals from different disciplines and between researchers and practitioners. The Society further promotes these objectives by conducting meetings and producing publications, and by encouraging a broad membership of statisticians, mathematicians, engineers, scientists and others interested in furthering the role of statistical and mathematical techniques in service to the environment.
- International Society for Clinical Biostatistics
- The Society is organized and shall be operated for educational and scientific purposes with the following Aims: to stimulate research on the biostatistical principles and methodology used in clinical research; to increase the relevance of statistical theory to clinical medicine; to promote high and harmonized standards of statistical practice; to work with other societies and organizations in the advancement of biostatistics; to promote better understanding of the use and interpretation of biostatistics by the general public, and by national and international organizations and agencies within the public and commercial sectors with an interest in, and/or responsibilities for, public health; and to provide a common forum for clinicians and statisticians through meetings, seminars and publications.
- Statistical Society of Australia
- SSAI is a national umbrella organisation representing Australian statisticians made up of state-based Branches. The overall objective of the Society and its Branches is to further the study and application of statistical theory and methods in all branches of learning and enterprise.
- Statistical Society of Canada
- The mission of the Statistical Society of Canada is to encourage the development and use of statistics and probability. The Statistical Society of Canada strives towards this mission by helping to develop a public awareness of the value of statistical thinking and the importance of statistics and statisticians in Canadian society, working to ensure that decisions affecting Canadian society are based on appropriate data and valid statistical interpretation, promoting the highest possible standards for statistical education and practice in Canada, promoting the development of statistical methodology, promoting a sense of community among all statisticians in Canada and providing a forum for the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners of statistics.
- Royal Statistical Society
- The Royal Statistical Society provides a forum for all who are interested in statistics. It has over 6000 members, a quarter of whom are outside the UK. With its wide range of activities and publications, it offers you stimulation and communication, whether you are a user of statistics in your everyday professional or social life, a statistician practising in industry, commerce, government, education or research, or a student of the subject.
