PSI One Day Meeting: New Starters SIG

  • Dates: 28 Mar, 2019
  • How to find us: IQVIA, 500 Brook Drive, Reading, RG2 6UU

This is the inaugural meeting of the recently relaunched New Starters Special Interest Group. The aim of this meeting is to provide a relaxed environment for early career statisticians to network and interact with their peers across the industry. We will provide a program of informal talks alongside breakout and ice-breaker sessions in order to facilitate discussion amongst attendees. For this one-day meeting the audience will be peers with similar levels of experience and sessions will include content of interest to statisticians early in their careers. In addition to presentations from fellow statisticians there will be a workshop on estimands and ample opportunity to connect with colleagues across the industry.

If you’re interested in presenting at this event, please send a brief description of your proposed presentation to Sam Hadlington by 22nd February 2019. We’re compiling a New Starters email distribution list so that we can let members know about future events and ideas for New Starters. Please click here to join the mailing list.
