The ICRM has been taking place every four years since 1989. It is dedicated to in-depth discussion of recent statistical developments which are relevant to analytical chemistry and is applications. The format of the meeting is inspired by the Gordon conferences: two sessions per day (one in the morning and one in the evening), with an invited speaker, a discussant and lots of room for the floor discussion. Participants can bring posters and there is room for a limited number of contributed talks.
