We've finalised the line up for the next UCL Biostatistics Network Symposium on "Contemporary Statistical Methods in Medical Research".
This year we'll have two sessions:
1. Risk prediction models in Health research
$-$ Ian White, MRC Biostatistics Unit, Cambridge
$-$ Ewout Steyerberg, University Medical Center, Rotterdam
$-$ Menelaos Pavlou, UCL Statistical Science
2. What you cannot do with observational data
$-$ Irene Petersen, UCL Primary Care and Population Health
$-$ Frank Windmeijer, Centre for Market and Public Organisation, University of Bristol
$-$ Aidan O'Keeffe, UCL Statistical Science
Not without some controversy (you might have seen this if you follow the allstat mailing list), the symposium (by the way, I think the PhDComics cartoon on how you should call an academic event is awesome!) is free for UCL members.
Non UCL members will have to pay a (I think very reasonable) fee of £25 $-$ details here.
