44th Annual Conference of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics
Joint Conference with the Italian Region of the International Biometric Society
ISCB Conference Awards for Scientists
The ISCB Conference Awards for Scientists (CASc) are available to biostatisticians from countries underdeveloped in clinical biostatistics, to provide financial support for their active attendance at the 2023 ISCB Annual Meeting and to present their original, previously unpublished research. Previously awarded applicants by the ISCB or previously awarded research by another scientific institution are therefore not eligible to apply for the 2023 ISCB CASc award. One may, of course, apply for an award in parallel with different scientific bodies, which is not a problem when submitting original research.
Up to three ISCB CASc awards may be granted in 2023. Applications are invited from all areas of biostatistics, including clinical and biomedical research, epidemiology, clinical pharmacology, vaccines research, hospital performance evaluation, survival analysis, causal inference, genomics and system biology, functional analysis, etc. However, applications with purely theoretical content or those involving mere routine data analyses are not encouraged.
The Society has decided to make the CASc competition attractive for eligible applicants. Consequently, for in-person participation in the conference, the 2023 CASc award will include the following:
- Free registration to the Milan Conference
- Free accommodation (paid and arranged by the Milan LOC)
- Free registration to one pre-conference short course of the applicant’s choice
- Invitation to the Milan Conference Dinner
- Travel support (economy flights only)
The LOC will organize all of the above benefits other than travel, which must be arranged and paid for by the successful applicant: reimbursement will be made after the conference on production of appropriate receipts.
Applicants should submit their abstract (limited to 350 words) using the ISCB44 abstract submission system http://iscb2023.onlinecongress.it/ISCB44/scientific . As part of the online abstract submission you are asked to check the box that indicates that you are applying for the Conference Award for Scientists. Once the box is checked applicants will be asked to upload the documents described in the guidelines.
Applicants should not register for the conference until they have heard the outcome of their application for the CASc. Unsuccessful applicants who still wish to attend the conference will remain eligible for the Early Bird rate until three weeks after the outcome of their application is sent to them: see guidelines for details.
The closing date for applications is the same as the general abstract deadline (March 31, 2023). If the latter is extended the CASc deadline is automatically extended to the same date.
