Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand
The New Zealand Statistical Association (NZSA) and the Operations Research Society of New Zealand (ORSNZ) are holding a joint conference hosted by Massey University at their Manawatu campus in 2018. This conference incorporates both the 69th Annual NZSA Conference and the 52nd annual ORSNZ Conference.
The conference presentations and other events will be held from Tuesday 27th November to Friday 30th November 2018. You should note that we have left a lot of time on the start and end days to allow the widest range of travel options for conference attendees.

1st August 2018: Registration/abstracts open
1st October 2018: Abstract submission closes
1st November 2018: Registration closes (for anyone wishing to present their work) This should give us plenty of time to manage and (hopefully) announce the full programme.
