### Reminder :WORKSHOP ON ENVIRONMETRICS, OCT. 22-24, 2008, NCAR
### Fall chapter meeting Nov 7th - looking for a speaker on polling statistics?

A couple quick items.

There is a reminder about the workshop on environmetrics occurring
later this month at NCAR in Boulder.  If this is your field of
interest, this will be a great event that happens to be occurring

Also - in planning for the fall meeting, the topic of polling
statistics was suggested. Is there anyone in the chapter who would
like to talk about possibly this issues and accuracy of political
polls.  With our meeting occurring just after the elections, we will
know if the polls were accurate or not.  This can be a very informal



### Reminder :WORKSHOP ON ENVIRONMETRICS, OCT. 22-24, 2008, NCAR

This workshop covers state-of-the-art applications and statistical
methods in environmental monitoring. Sessions on applications include
monitoring in ecology, monitoring in air quality, monitoring of
aquatic resources, monitoring of climate change and its impacts. The
spatio-temporal data collected in environmental monitoring present
some interesting and challenging statistical problems such as modeling
of space-time correlation, analysis of the huge amount of correlated
data, and analysis of high frequency monitoring data. Technical
sessions will cover recent developments in statistical methods for
environmental data. A one-day short course on the analysis of
spatially correlated environmental data will be offered and taught by
Reinhard Furrer, Doug Nychka and Stephan Sain. There will also be a
poster session and the poster abstracts need to be submitted by
October 13, 2008.
