This year’s Winter Meeting of the Dutch Biostatistics Society will focus on the statistical analysis of medical images. The advances in imaging and analysis of images have been plenty in the last decade and this meeting will focus on some of these breakthroughs. The meeting is concluded with social drinks. In the morning (10:00-12:00, Mathematical Institute, Leiden), Joke Durnez (Stanford) will be teaching a short course for PhD students, postdocs and other people interested on the analysis of medical images. The poster of the event may be found here. For more information: e.c.wit@rug.nl.

Room 412, Snellius building, Leiden (short course) and Havinga zaal, Gorlaeus, Leiden (afternoon meeting, about 5-10 minutes walk from the Snellius building). At the moment, there are many construction works in progress in and around the Gorlaeus building. Therefore, the Havingazaal is no longer accessible via the main entrance of the Gorlaeus building. The Havingazaal is now best accessed via the entrance of the Oort building (Niels Bohrweg 2). At the reception of the Oort building is a staircase. If you climb these stairs to the first floor, you will reach a walkway. The Havingazaal is located at the end of this walkway.
