Brown University is pleased to host the 2014 Atlantic Causal Inference Conference, scheduled to take place Thursday, May 15th through Friday, May 16th, 2014.
On Wednesday, May 14th, Tyler VanderWeele from Harvard University will offer a short course on Causal Mediation Analysis.
The Atlantic Causal Inference Conference is a gathering of statisticians, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, economists, social science and policy researchers to discuss methodologic issues with drawing causal inferences from experimental and non-experimental data. The inaugural meeting was held in 2005 with a small group of researchers at Columbia University and has since grown into an annual event with over 100 attendees. Recent meetings have been hosted by the University of Michigan, New York University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University (see schedule from last year's conference here). What began as a regional conference has grown in geographic reach, now attracting researchers from across the US and from abroad.
Registration for the conference scientific sessions and short course has now closed. The conference registration fee (professionals $125/Students $75) covers attendance for the scientific program on May 15-16th, and includes the cost of conference materials, continental breakfast on May 15th and 16th, refreshments during break periods, and box lunch on May 15th. The fee does not cover the cost of parking, the junior researcher dinner on May 14th, or the short course on May 14th. To attend the May 14th short course, a one-time fee of $75 will be charged, covering course material costs and included refreshments. Seats are limited, so register soon to guarantee your space!
