Parlez-Vous Francais?

Whether you speak French or the borderless language of Biostatistics, make your way to Montpellier, France, for another exciting and informative annual conference of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB). Dr. Nicole C. Close, EmpiriStat’s Founder and President, and Devin Hunt, EmpiriStat’s Manager, Statistical Programming will be both presenting at the meeting and learning more about the international advances and contributions of their colleagues.

Founded in 1978, ISCB works 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 real world of clinical medicine” (  To obtain these goals, the ISCB utilizes their courses, educational programs and newsletters, as well as their widely respected and attended annual conferences. The 31st ISCB Annual Conference will take place in Montpellier, France, 29 August through 2 September 2010. 
Famous French writer and philosopher Voltaire once wrote, “Judge a man by his questions not his answers.” ISCB is a forum of information sharing, where important questions regarding changes in Biostatistics and its importance to all fields of medical study, are welcomed and encouraged.  
Dr. Close will be providing her insights into “Is it intention to treat analysis or are we just fooling everyone?”, while Mr. Hunt will be presenting “Statistical analysis validation techniques and the often overlooked clinical review process”.
Through her peer respected educational seminars, Dr. Close has always urged the clinical research community to: learn and use statistical terminology appropriately; appreciate statistical considerations when planning, designing, and analyzing a clinical trial; learn statistical concepts of variability, bias, estimation, and hypothesis testing; and learn why and how to engage a statistician when conducting clinical research.
