ISCB Awards


Conference Awards for Scientists

As in previous years, the 2017 ISCB Conference Awards for Scientists (CASc) are available to biostatisticians from the countries underdeveloped in clinical biostatistics to attend the 2017 ISCB Annual Conference in Vigo, Spain, and to present a paper there. The CASc budget for 2017 allows for granting at least 3 CASc awards. Please, note that previously awarded applicants are no longer eligible to apply for the CASc award.


Only original contributions, not previously presented or published before the time of application will be considered. Applications with purely theoretical content or those representing mere routine analyses of data sets are not encouraged by the ISCB.


Each CASc award will consist of a free registration to the 2017 ISCB Annual Conference, free accommodation, free subscription to one short course selected by the applicant, an invitation to the Conference Dinner sponsored by the ISCB, plus a travel support.


Scientists should submit their completed application form, one-page abstract and full poster or paper/presentation to Zdeněk Valenta (see the address below).


Abstracts not granted a CASc award will be eligible for independent review by the Vigo Scientific Programme Committee (SPC). However, please note that the abstracts will be forwarded to the SPC only at the specific request of the applicant.


Students are not eligible to apply for the ISCB CASc awards. Instead, they are encouraged to apply for the Student Conference Award (ISCB StCA).

Student Conference Awards


The Student Conference Awards are available for registered postgraduate students to attend and present a paper at the 38th ISCB Annual Conference, 9 - 13 July 2017, Vigo, Spain.


Approximately three awards will be granted depending on the number and quality of the applications. Selection will be made on the basis of a summary of a paper to be presented, which should illustrate the application of statistical methodology to clinical or epidemiological research. Results of particular studies are of interest only if the analysis has methodological implications or shows a novel and interesting application of biostatistics.


Applications, prepared as described in this document, should be sent by email to the Chair, Nadine Binder, copying the Secretary, Katherine Lee. All applications will be acknowledged, so please look out for an email.
