We were proud to host the Eighth International Geostatistics Congress in Chile, bringing it to South America for the first time in its 33 year history, and welcome over 300 delegates to Santiago. The presence of such a large number of delegates from many countries and backgrounds ensured rich discussions and exchange of experiences. Technical talks and posters presented during these five days covered a broad spectrum of fields and provided an instantaneous picture of the current state of the art in this discipline.

Producing such a complex event has been a rather challenging task which has required a lot of disciplined effort from all of us. This Congress would not have been possible without all those people who have put in long hours of hard work, dedication, energy and talent. We thank them most sincerely for their contributions of time and expertise to this project. Our heartfelt appreciation goes to:

The authors for their invaluable contributions, monumental efforts of meeting deadlines, and willingness to travel across the world in order to share their knowledge and experience. With your exceptional articles we were able to bring the best of geostatistics to Chile. All papers in these proceedings were peer reviewed and we thank the authors for the willingness to invest their personal time and correct the articles, providing insightful comments thus ensuring the quality of this publication.

Sponsors for their generous support.

The Gecamin team for their meticulous planning, hard work, professionalism and continuous commitment to making this Congress a success.

The International Geostatistics Executive Committee for their insights regarding some organisational decisions.

And to you, readers and participants, whose interest and enthusiasm made this event possible and the whole experience extremely rewarding and enriching.
