The ISI Statistics and the Environment Committee is actively exploring the establishment of an ISI Section on Statistics and Environment. The Executive Committee of the ISI Council recently established guidelines for establishing new ISI sections. Among the guidelines is sponsorship of a major international conference. To that end, the Statistics and the Environment Committee has devoted most of its energies over the past year into the development of such an event. Its title is International Conference on Environmental Statistics and Health. The three-day conference will be held during the third week of July 2003 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Monserrat Fuentes (University of North Carolina) will chair the Scientific Committee, and Wenceslao González Manteiga (ISI-Spain) will chair the Local Arrangements Committee.
