The workshop provided a substantial platform for 26 international researchers and practitioners to establish new contacts, strengthen their existing ties and have fruitful exchanges in spatial statistics and its application in different disciplines including ecology, remote sensing, forest biometry, agriculture, epidemiology and medicine. There have been totally 7 presentations held by various participants, followed by in-depth discussions. In addition, the participants enjoyed the intensive and comprehensive tutorials given by Lauri Mehtätalo on “Mixed-Effects models in Theory and Pracice”, followed by R training sessions and trouble shooting.

We look forward to our continued joint activities with IBS-DR working groups and DVFFA. The next planned event organised by the working group “Ecology and Environment” and the DVFFA will be a statistical session at the German Forest Science Conference (FoWiTa 2016) in Freiburg from 26th to 29th of September 2016.
