Leiden hosts the annual international conference Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers on 24-26 April, 2018. This conference is aimed at career-young statisticians with an interest in the application and development of time-to-event analysis and related topics. This three-day event 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 tutorial on multi-state models by Prof. dr. Hein Putter (Leiden University Medical Center), talks from keynote speakers Dr. Maja Pohar Perme (University of Ljubljana) and Dr. Birgit Lissenberg-Witte (VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam), as well as poster sessions, a welcome reception 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
– PhD students
– Postgraduate students
Anyone who does not consider themselves “career-young” is also welcome to attend and present their work.
