38th Annual Conference of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics

July 9 - 13, 2017, Vigo, Spain


The International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB) is devoted to stimulate research into the principles and methodology used in the design and analysis of clinical research and to increase the relevance of statistical theory to the real world of clinical medicine.


In 2017 the city of Vigo will be hosting the 38th Annual Conference of the ISCB.


Vigo is the largest city in Galicia, the autonomous historical region in the NW of Spain. It is surrounded by splendid beaches and mountains, and enjoys a modern, industrial and innovative atmosphere.

Vigo is fully committed to science through the University of Vigo and its faculties and research institutes, like the Biomedical Research Center (CINBIO), launched in 2009 to promote the collaboration with local hospitals and biomedical industry.


About the conference


Like previous annual conferences of ISCB, the 2017 conference will provide an international scientific forum for exchange of theory, methods and applications of biostatistics in medical research. The conference is addressed to 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 Stephen Senn 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. Besides, several courses and mini-symposia are scheduled, including the Students' Day on Thursday, which follows the successful first experience at ISCB37. We don’t forget the traditional excursions on Tuesday and the social events to enjoy Vigo and its surroundings.


The venue


The venue of the conference is the Mar de Vigo Convention Centre and Auditorium, an impressive beachfront building designed by the Galician architect César Portela and opened in 2011. Located at a walking distance from some of the best hotels and restaurants in the city centre, Mar de Vigo raises at a privileged place between the façade of the fishing port of Vigo and the dockyards, with amazing views of Vigo’s estuary (Ría de Vigo). The building covers more than 23,000 m2 and holds an auditorium with capacity for about 1,500 people.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the ISCB38 in Vigo. We are sure that the conference will be a great experience!
