The regional Biometric Societies from Spain, Italy, and EMR (Eastern Mediterranean Region) have established a collaborative network. In each of the three regional IBS conferences, held every 2 years, a joint session of the other 2 regions will be held. For example, in the XIV CEB in Ciudad Real a joint Italian-EMR session was organized by Malu Calle. In this session the speakers were Stefania Galimberti from the Italian region, and Dimitris Karlis (Greece) and Jonathan Rosenblatt (Israel), from the EMR region.
At the Italian IX SIB conference which was held in Trentino Brixen, 27-28/6/2013 the speakers from Spain were David Conesa and Natàlia Vilor.
At the EMR2013 conference which was held in Tel-Aviv, 22-25/4/2013, the speakers from Spain were María Durban and Susana Pérez Álvarez.
The current presidents of the three regions (2013-2015) are:
- Spain: David Conesa
- Italy: Maria Grazia Valsecchi
- EMR: Havi Murad (Israel)
It was agreed that each president will notify the other two on the dates of his/her conference as soon as it is scheduled.
