Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers Leiden, 24-26 April 2018

Leiden is proud to host the first annual Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers conference outside the UK

This is the seventh annual SAfJR conference and is hosted in Leiden, the Netherlands. It is a three-day event that is aimed at career-young statisticians with an interest in the application and development of time-to-event analysis and related topics. The conference provides a unique opportunity for participants to present and discuss their work with peers at a similar stage in their careers in a relaxed and friendly environment.

The event includes a tutorial on multi-state models by Prof. dr. Hein Putter (Leiden University Medical Center), talks from keynote speakers Dr. Maja Pohar Perme (University of Ljubljana) and Dr. Birgit Lissenberg-Witte (VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam), as well as poster sessions, a welcome reception and a conference dinner!

Who should attend?

The conference aims to bring together researchers and statisticians working in different areas of survival analysis who are in the early stages of their career. This includes,

  • Career-young researchers and statisticians
  • Post-docs
  • PhD students
  • Postgraduate students

Anyone who does not consider themselves “career-young” is also welcome to attend and present their work.
