IBC conference Dublin

Conference/meeting, Research 4. August 2008

University College DublinJuly 14-18, 2008 I participated in IBC – the XXIVth International Biometric Conference in Dublin. Here I presented a poster “Embedding a State Space Model into a Markov Decision Process”. Afterwards I spend a few days enjoying Dublin.

Theme day about Herd Navigator

Conference/meeting 8. February 2008

HerdNavigator_LogoTM Yesterday I participated in a theme day about Herd Navigator which is the commercial product developed under the Biosens I project.

Herd Navigator makes it possible to provide decision support of individual cows in terms of reproduction, health and feeding, giving the farmer a financial benefit per cow per year. The herd manager gains a better overview of the condition of the herd and can take action early against diseases and at the right time for reproduction. Earlier intervention means savings in time and costs and also ensures optimal reproduction control. The product uses a combination of biosensors, IT, statistics and OR techniques.

The product won the Agromek prize. The partners are Dansk Kvæg, DeLaval and FOSS.

EURO XXII conference

Conference/meeting 6. August 2007

July 8-11, 2007 I participated in EURO XXII in Prague. Here I gave a talk “Embedding Dynamic Statistic Prediction (DSP) Models into a Markov Decision Process (MDP)”. Afterwards I spend a few days enjoying Prague.

First Nordic-Baltic Biometric Conference

Conference/meeting 17. February 2007

The Nordic-Baltic Biometric Conference 2007 (NBBC07) is the first conference arranged by the Nordic Regional and Baltic National Biometric Societies.

The conferences aim at to supplement the series arranged by the International Biometric Society and are held in order to strengthen the collaborative efforts of the Nordic researchers interested in biometry and statistics in general.

NBBC07 is hosted by the Research Unit of Statistics and Decision Analysis, Department of Genetics and Biotechnology, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, University of Aarhus situated at Research Centre Foulum.

For more information see the conference web-site.
