64_Biometrisches Kolloquium 2018

Staburo at the Biometric Colloquium 2018 in Frankfurt

Staburo participated in the 64th Biometric Colloquium 2018 in Frankfurt, the annual meeting of the German Region of the International Biometric Society (IBS-DR). The conference was hosted by the faculty of medicine at the Goethe University and statisticians from pharmaceutical industry, academia and regulatory agencies from all over the world attended. The Colloquium’s main topic was “Biometry: Living Diversity”, which promised interesting talks, great discussions and new insights to a variety of topics. Some of the themes were “Bayesian Approaches”, “Survival Analysis”, “Adaptive Designs” and “Meta Analysis”, but also hot emerging topics as “Estimands and Missing Values in Clinical Trials” and “Health Technology Assessment” were discussed with statistics experts. On the other hand, more technical presentations about “Machine Learning”, “Multiple Testing” or “Non-parametric Methods” were held.

The reception in Frankfurt’s town hall and the conference dinner in the “Eisenhower Rotunde” at the Goethe University Frankfurt offered a great opportunity to meet participants and speakers of the conference, in a very festive environment. We are looking forward to next year’s conference!
