The Division of Biostatistics at the Medical College of Wisconsin announces a conference entitled "Biostatistics in the Modern Computing Era" co-sponsored by the Division, the ASA Section on Bayesian Statistical Science and the Wisconsin Chapter of the ASA. It will include invited presentations by leading statisticians from both the Bayesian and frequentist perspectives. Presentations will focus on clinical trials, high-dimensional statistics, survival analysis, precision medicine and population health. A grant-writing workshop and a Bayesian additive regression trees short course will also be presented. The conference will be held September 28-30, 2017 at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. Travel awards may be available for PhD students and junior faculty. The autumn weather in Milwaukee is historically very pleasant and enjoyable. Beer-making, bratwurst and Oktoberfest are great German traditions brought to Milwaukee and Wisconsin by waves of immigrants. There will be social events featuring beer, bratwurst and biostatistics hosted at idyllic beer gardens on the "cheese coast". The main event will include an exclusive Oktoberfest engagement of polka-palooza with The Polkaholics led by Dandy Don Hedeker with a guest appearance by fellow Imposterior Brad Carlin.
