Joint Conference on Biometrics & Biopharmaceutical Statistics
August 28 – September 1, 2017 in Vienna, Austria
Quantifying Life. Advancing Research. Enabling Decisions.
The CEN-ISBS Vienna 2017 Joint Conference on Biometrics & Biopharmaceutical Statistics is a unique event integrating multiple perspectives on current biostatistical research and an excellent opportunity for organisations and companies to meet colleagues from academia, regulatory agencies and other organisations.
The Central European Network (CEN) was established in 2008, joining three long-standing regions of the International Biometric Society (IBS), the German, Austro-Swiss and Polish regions to support biometric communities within the regions and scientific discussions and collaborations across the regions. The International Society for Biopharmaceutical Statistics’ (ISBS) primary mission is to improve and promote international unification and standardisation of statistical practice in the biopharmaceutical industry. Thus, the joint CEN-ISBS conference in Vienna will provide a unique forum to share and exchange information between biostatisticians working in the academic field, in the pharmaceutical industry and at regulatory bodies. The conference will focus both on methods and practical applications of biostatistics in life sciences and drug development. Its aim is also to stimulate the use and development of new methods to further increase the value of research for clinical and biopharmaceutical practice.
A satellite symposium, co-organised with the European Medicines Agency, will take place on Thursday, 31 August, and Friday, 1 September 2017.
The traditional ROeS excursion on Thursday, as well as pre- and post-conference trips will permit to explore and enjoy Vienna. The optional conference dinner will take place in one of Vienna’s traditional vineyards.
The Medical University of Vienna (MedUni Vienna), founded in 2004 as a university on its own, is one of Europe’s well-established medical training and research institutions with a rich tradition. The conference venue is the auditorium center of the MedUni Wien, located on the 7th and 8th floors of the Vienna general hospital building.
We are convinced that the CEN-ISBS Vienna 2017 will be as attractive scientifically as the city of Vienna is charming. Therefore, mark your calendar now!
We cordially invite you to Vienna and the CEN-ISBS Vienna 2017,
