The Spanish Region of the International Biometric Society is proud to announce the Satellite meeting of the IBC conference 2014. This Satellite meeting will be held in downtown Valencia (Spain) from July 13th to 15th 2014. The main topic will be Spatio-Temporal Statistics and in addition to invited speakers (Renato Assuncao, Annibale Biggeri, Janine Illian, Miguel-Ángel Martínez-Beneito, Raquel Menezes, Marc Sáez, Sujit Sahu and Lola Ugarte), there will also be a Special Session jointly organized with the International Society of Geospatial Health – GnosisGIS (http://www.gnosisgis.org).
