7th Channel Network Conference


The 7th Channel Network Conference will take place at Rothamsted Research from 10 to 12 July 2019.

The Channel Network Conference is a biennial conference organized by the IBS regions; Belgium, France, Great-Britain/Ireland and the Netherlands. This conference aims at gathering statisticians to discuss the newest statistical methodology for the analysis of biological and medical data. It is a 3-day conference with short courses, invited and contributed sessions. Usually, around 150 researchers from both academia and industry participate in the conference. In 2019, the British and Irish region will host the conference at Rothamsted Research, the world’s oldest agricultural research institute.

Per Andersen will be the keynote speaker. In addition there will be three Invited Sessions:

  • Intensive Longitudinal Data
  • Post-selection Inference in Regression
  • Complex Survival Data

2019 marks the centenary of R. A. Fisher's appointment at Rothamsted as the first agricultural statistician and to celebrate this, the final day of the conference will include the 38th Fisher Memorial Lecture, given by Brian Cullis and Alison Smith and a Special Session on the Past, Present and Future of Agricultural Statistics.

Participants will additionally be able to choose one of three short courses:

  • Extended Mixed Effects Regression Modelling
  • Design of Complex Experiments in Biological Research
  • Investigating Spatial Heterogeneity with Geographically Weighted Models

As for all IBS conferences, contributed abstracts, for both oral and poster presentations are welcome across the wide range of biological and biomedical application areas pursued by society members, and associated with the diverse array of methodological topics required to address the challenges that these application areas bring, and not just associated with the invited programme topics. A list of common topics is provided within the online abstract submission system.

Registration includes conference material, lunches, coffee/tea, the conference dinner and all social events.
