  • Our main activity is our regional biennial conference, which was last in Hobart, from Sunday 29th November to Thursday 3rd December 2015. Many members and overseas visitors, including IBS President John Hinde and keynote speakers, came to Tasmania for the Biometrics by the Harbour conference. See the conference booklet and click on the conferences picture to the left for more details. And many photos from all five days are available to view. And now we have our very own Facebook group, IBS-AR which has more photos uploaded from attendees! And go here or to the conference page to see all the talks that are now online.

    As detailed in the ALF awards page, the region recognises members who have given "longtime" service to our Society and to the advancement of biometry. At the 2015 conference dinner the two most recent awardees, Kaye Basford and Brian Cullis, were named. Congratulations from your Society's region!

    On the final conference day Daisy Shepherd and Louise McMillan were announced as joint student talk award winners and Anna Norberg was the student poster award winner.

    At the AGM on 2nd December Samuel Müller was elected to be President for 2017-18 and David Baird replaces Kathy Ruggerio as Secretary while she serves on the IBS representative council as Chair of the Communications Section.
