History of region’s development:

The German Region of the International Biometric Society was founded in 1953 with a total of 25 members. After the German Wall was built in 1961 a separate Eastern German Region was founded. About 30 years later, the two German regions were reunited in 1990 and now form the second but largest region in the International Biometric Society with more than 900 members. The general objective of the society is to promote biometry in research, education and application. The region conducts scientific events and supports its scientific working groups and scientific publications to achieve this objective.
