Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers Conference


Copenhagen is proud to host the second annual Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers conference outside the UK. This is the 8th annual SAfJR conference. It is a three-day event that is aimed at career-young statisticians with an interest in the application and development of time-to-event analysis and related topics.

The conference provides a unique opportunity for participants to present and discuss their work with peers at a similar stage in their careers in a relaxed and friendly environment. The event includes a short course on Recurrent Event Analysis by Per Kragh Andersen (University of Copenhagen), talks from keynote speakers Nadine Binder (University of Freiburg), Thomas Alexander Gerds (University of Copenhagen) and Christian Torp-Pedersen (Aalborg University), as well as contributed talks, a poster session and a conference dinner!

The conference aims to bring together researchers and statisticians working in different areas of survival analysis who are in the early stages of their career. This includes, career-young researchers and statisticians, post-docs, PhD students and postgraduate students. Those who do not consider themselves 'career-young' are still welcome to attend and present their work. The previous SAfJR conferences were organised by the universities of Leiden (2018), Leicester (2017, 2012), Leeds (2016), Keele (2015), Warwick (2014), and Liverpool (2013).
