38th Annual Conference of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics

July 9 – 13, 2017

Vigo, Spain


In 2017 the city of Vigo will be hosting the 38th Annual Conference of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB). Vigo is the largest city in Galicia, the autonomous historical region in the north west of Spain. It is surrounded by splendid beaches and mountains, and enjoys a modern, industrial, and innovative atmosphere.

About the conference

Like previous editions, the 2017 ISCB conference will provide an international scientific forum for exchange of theory, methods, and applications of biostatistics in medical research. The conference is aimed at 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. In addition, several courses and mini-symposia are scheduled, including the Students’ Day on Thursday, which follows the successful first experience at ISCB37. We also offer the possibility to enjoy Vigo and its surroundings with our social programme, including the traditional excursions on Tuesday.

Registration and Abstract submission

Abstract submission will open on December 20, 2016.
