The 60th Annual Conference of the New Zealand Statistical Association was successfully hosted by the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Operations Research at Victoria University of Wellington, 2-3 September 2009.

An optional one-day workshop on Semiparametric Regression was given by Prof Matt Wand (University of Wollongong), preceding the conference on Tuesday 1 September.

The Conference Programme is available online and a hard copy was printed for all attendees. There were also some Poster Presentations displayed in the area for coffee/tea breaks and lunches (Maclaurin building, Foyer). The hard copy of the programme contained abstracts for all the talks and posters, and a pdf version (edited to remove email addresses) is available here: NZSA2009_Programme (pdf).

SAS ran a demonstration session of their Enterprise Guide Software, and explained applications of it in both teaching and research. This was held on the morning of September 4th (the day after the conference). Click here for more details.

Talks or posters from students were especially encouraged: as well as only paying half the fees there were prizes for the best student talks and posters (with a total value of NZ$1000), sponsored by Offlode. See the Student Participation page for the results. There was a Young Statisticians' Breakfast/Networking Session on the morning of Thursday 3 September, 8.15-9.00am in the Foyer of Maclaurin building, kindly sponsored by Statistics New Zealand, for students and career-young statisticians.
