ISCB 2017


The International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB) is devoted to stimulate research into the principles and methodology used in the design and analysis of clinical research and to increase the relevance of statistical theory to the real world of clinical medicine.

In 2017 the city of Vigo will be hosting the 38th Annual Conference of the ISCB.

Vigo is the largest city in Galicia, the autonomous historical region in the NW of Spain. It is surrounded by splendid beaches and mountains, and enjoys a modern, industrial and innovative atmosphere.

Vigo is fully committed to science through the University of Vigo and its faculties and research institutes, like the Biomedical Research Center (CINBIO), launched in 2009 to promote the collaboration with local hospitals and biomedical industry.

Like previous annual conferences of ISCB, the 2017 conference will provide an international scientific forum for exchange of theory, methods and applications of biostatistics in medical research. The conference is addressed to statisticians, clinicians and members of other disciplines related to clinical practice, such as epidemiologists, clinical chemists and clinical pharmacologists.

This year, two exciting plenary talks given by Anastasios Tsiatis and Francesca Dominici and eight invited sessions on a number of key topics are organized. This will be completed with contributed parallel sessions about scientific topics of special interest. Besides, several courses and mini-symposia are scheduled, including the Students' Day on Thursday, which follows the successful first experience at ISCB37. We don’t forget the traditional excursions on Tuesday and the social events to enjoy Vigo and its surroundings.
