Welcome to Kraków...

  • After careful consideration and in light of the uncertainty concerning travel restrictions and social distancing measures,

    ISCB had made the decision to convert ISCB41 Krakow 2020 to a virtual conference.

    We were very excited to hold ISCB41 in Kraków, and it is disappointing that we will not all be able to come together in person in August. However, the scientific programme will be preserved, i.e. equally rich and exciting.
    Both Plenary Sessions, and their distinguished Speakers, are formally confirmed; and all 12 Invited Sessions, as well as all 5 proposed pre-conference Short-Courses and most of the Mini-Symposia, will be held as originally planned.

    Guidance for authors, and questions about registration, including reduced fees, will be announced soon, please watch the website.

    The ISCB was founded to stimulate research into the principles and methodology used in the design and analysis of clinical research and to increase the relevance of statistical theory to the area of clinical medicine. As previous conferences, the ISCB41 will provide a scientific forum for international exchange of theory, methods and applications of biostatistics in medical research among clinicians, statisticians and members of other disciplines interested in this field.

    The royal city of Kraków is a unique symbol of Polish national identity. The former capital of Poland for almost 600 years was the seat of the kings of Poland. The royal court played an important role in supporting artistic and cultural life. Outstanding humanists, scientists and artists used to come here to live and work, and this continues. Contemporary Kraków is a city of science, literature and art.

    It is a charming city with beautiful medieval, renaissance and baroque buildings and city squares. The old centre of Kraków, which has been formed over 1000 years, was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, as one of the most notable urban complexes in Europe.

    We cordially invite you to Kraków and to ISCB41.
