Third UK One-Day Meeting on
Morphometrics and Statistical Shape Analysis

York, 6th January 2012


Following on from the success of the first two meetings held in Manchester in 2009 and Canterbury in 2010, we are pleased to announce the programme for the third meeting to be held in York.

Morphometric analyses are now widely used in biological and medical research, and new approaches to shape analysis are continually being developed and refined by statisticians.

Given the sizeable communities of both biologists and statisticians interested in shape analysis in the UK, this meeting aims to provide a stimulating forum for cross-disciplinary engagement between researchers. As such, we hope that the meeting will be an opportunity to showcase some recent research developments and stimulate new collaborative projects at the interface of statistics and the life sciences .


The programme is planned so that participants may be able to travel to York, attend the meeting and return home on the same day. The meeting will be held in the rooms of the Medical Society of York, in the historical city centre, and at walking distance from the train station.

We have invited six speakers, who are prominent experts in their specialty fields and who can provide different perspectives on morphometrics and statistical shape analysis.

Participants are encouraged to bring a poster and discuss it with other members of the community. The programme offers plenty of time for discussion during lunch and the tea/coffee breaks. If you would like to present a poster, just select this option on the registration form. Guidance for poster presenters is available by clicking here.


The deadline for registration has passed .

For any special enquiries, please contact the local organisers.

The registration fee for the meeting, including lunch and refreshments, is £25.00 per participant (a discounted fee of £15.00 applies to students).

Payment of registration fees is by credit or debit card.

The registration and payment of fees must be received by the 3rd January 2012. No reimbursement of registration fees is available after this date. Should the number of registrations exceed the seating capacity of the venue, we may be forced to close registration early.
