The BIR, jointly with the Fisher Memorial Trust, has actively celebrated the contributions of young biometricians by instituting the biennial Young Biometricians Award.  This meeting provides a forum for three of the winners to present some of their latest findings.  A counterpoint is provided in a talk by John Hinde, immediate Past-President of the International Biometric Society, on topics of current importance to the profession.

Speakers are:

Anaïs Rouanet (MRC Biostatistics Unit, University of Cambridge) - 2017 YBA winner
Joint latent class model for longitudinal data and interval-censored semi-competing events: application to dementia

David Robertson (MRC Biostatistics Unit, University of Cambridge) - 2015 YBA winner

Doug Speed (UCL Genetics Institute) - 2013 YBA winner

The meeting will be held from 1:30-5:30pm on Tuesday 28th November 2017 at the London Mathematical Society, De Morgan House, 57-58 Russell Square, London WC1B 4HS. The AGM of the BIR will precede the scientific meeting.
