25th International Scientific Symposium on Biometrics

Poreč, Croatia, 8 - 10 September 2021

 

Researchers and practitioners in the field of biometrics – development and application of statistical and mathematical methods for data analysis in life sciences – are encouraged to take part in this symposium organised by the Croatian Biometric Society and co-organised by the University of Zagreb.

 

VENUE

The Symposium takes place on the Istrian peninsula in Poreč – a city with a thousand-year history

Poreč developed on a small symmetrical peninsula long before the arrival of the Histrians, an Illyrian tribe.  Today the centre of the old city is located on this small peninsula. With the arrival of the Histrians the area surrounding the present-day city was settled, and thanks to a naturally protected harbour the construction of a harbour-centre was enabled and Poreč could develop unhindered.

WHO WE ARE?

Croatian Biometric Society (HBMD) was established in 1989. The Society brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines and institutions from agriculture and forestry through biomedicine, anthropology, psychology, kinesiology to statistics and mathematics. Since 1994 we organize BIOSTAT symposium, and since 1996 the International School of Biometrics.
