The TIES Conference 2008 is hosted by Mathematics, Statistics and Physics in the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences at The University of British Columbia Okanagan. The Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences is the largest Faculty at UBC Okanagan with over 33 discipline-based or interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate degrees in the sciences, social sciences and humanities.


The International Environmetrics Society (TIES) is a nonprofit corporation which brings together scientists with a common interest in quantitative methods for environmental science and management.

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.
