TIES Conference

Saturday 13th August, 2016

The 26th international Environmetrics conference was held in Scotland for the first time from 18th to 22ndJuly 2016. There was a very strong Glasgow presence in organising the conference, in planning invited sessions and in presenting at the conference. The School’s own Prof Marian Scott was a member of both the scientific and organising committees and also on the local organising committee were Drs Duncan Lee and Claire Miller from our School.

The best student poster award went to a Glasgow student, Marnie Mclean as well as the best student oral presentation award which was presented to Amira Elayouty, so very well done to both of them.

We also had a very strong presence in the programme with invited talks from Dr Duncan Lee, and Dr Ruth O'Donnell, and contributed talks from Mengyi Gong, Craig Wilkie and posters from Qingying Shu, Eilidh Jack and Guowen Huang.

Glasgow shone at the event, and all of the delegates went home with a "Think Glasgow" message.
