Morphometric analyses have become increasingly widespread in biological and medical research, and new approaches to shape analysis are developed and refined by statisticians. The UK is unique in having sizeable communities of both statisticians and biologists or medical researchers interested in the analysis of shape.
This meeting aims to bring together the communities of researchers in statistics and the biological and medical sciences who are interested in the analysis of shape. We hope that the meeting will be an opportunity to engage in interactions across disciplines and maybe will stimulate new collaborative projects at the interface of statistics and the life sciences.
