TIES meetings   

TIES Annual and Regional Meetings

TIES has held annual conferences since 1990. Topical focuses for past conferences include spatial-temporal models, uncertainty analysis, environmental decision analysis, monitoring design and analysis, quantitative methods for environmental sustainability, and more. The J. Stuart Hunter Lecture was established in 1996 to honor Prof. Hunter, who is now Professor Emeritus, School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton University. The President's Invited Lecture was introduced in 2001.
Regional TIES meetings and TIES sessions in related conferences have taken place since recent years.
