In recent years, research design and data analysis have received widespread attention due to advancements in various areas of biostatistical research. Previous Joint Biostatistics Symposium held by universities in mainland China has fostered dialogue among biostatisticians from mainland China and abroad, as well as promoting an interdisciplinary approach for research.
International Society of Biometrics-Chinese Region, Peking University, the Chinese Association of Applied Statistics, China Association for Applied Statistics - Biomedical Statistics, in collaboration with other renowned organizations, are jointly hosting the 6th IBS-China Biostatistical Conference & The Satellite Conference of IBC2020 (SC-IBC2020) between June 30 and July 2, 2020, in Beijing, China.
