Joint meeting of
TIES 2004: The International Environmetrics Society


ACCURACY 2004: The Sixth International Symposium
on Spatial Accuracy Assessment


For the first time, the annual TIES conference and the biennial Spatial Accuracy Symposium will hold a joint meeting reflecting their mutual interest in the quantification of environmental and natural resources processes and the uncertainty associated with them. Recent international meetings have been very successful with TIES meeting in the UK, the USA, and South Africa and the Spatial Accuracy Symposium meeting in Canada, the Netherlands, and Australia. The joint meeting will be held June 28 July 1, 2004, at the Holiday Inn By The Bay in Portland, Maine, USA. The program will consist of presentations by invited plenary speakers and invited paper, contributed paper, and poster sessions. The website is still under construction, but additional meeting details may be found at http://www.nrcse.washington.edu/ties/events/ties2004/default.html

Abstracts for posters are solicited on important quantitative aspects of environmental and natural resources problems with emphasis on spatial data, spatial analyses, and spatial accuracy assessments. A detailed list of conference topics appears on the meeting website. Posters on these and any aspect of environmental, natural resources, and spatial assessments will be considered.

Abstracts of not more than 200 words that include title, 3 to 5 keywords, and names, affiliations, and contact information for the contact author should be sent via regular mail, fax, or e-mail (preferably) by 01 May 2004 to:
