As part of the International Year of Statistics and Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013, the Operations Research Society of New Zealand (ORSNZ) and the New Zealand Statistical Association (NZSA) are holding a joint conference hosted by the University of Waikato in Hamilton. This conference incorporates both the 47th annual ORSNZ Conference and the 64th Annual NZSA conference. The conference will cover all practical and theoretical aspects of operations research (OR) and statistics. Papers at the intersection of these areas, including those in analytics, are particularly welcome.
The conference will start with a welcome function on Sunday 24 Nov. The conference sessions will run from Mon 25 Nov to Wed 27 Nov, with a conference dinner on Tuesday 26 Nov.

It is with sadness that we report Ken Jury passed away on July 8. Ken was a well known and respected statistician who began his career at Ruakura (Hamilton) in 1958. He was responsible for biometrics and computing at Ruakura from 1969 until 1979, when he became Director of Animal Research, and was also appointed to the Council of the University of Waikato.
Ken was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM) for services to the Dairy Industry in 1998.
A full appreciation of Ken’s involvement with statistical and mathematical science in New Zealand appears as the lead article of the June 1996 newsletter of the NZSA.
