Conference Dates: Thursday, May 25 – Saturday, May 27, 2017
The theme of the conference is to promote and support the development, application and appropriate use of statistical methods for lifetime or time-to-event data in data science, precision medicine and risk analysis. The focus of research includes i) Analysis of time-to-event data with censoring, truncation and competing risks, ii) Counting processes, multi-state, multiple or clustered events, and longitudinal biomarker histories, and quality-of-life models, iii) Interdisciplinary research in areas such as finance, economics, imaging, engineering, genomics and genetics. The conference is sponsored by the Lifetime Data Analysis Interest Group (LIDA IG), which operates under the rules of the Committee on Sections of the American Statistical Association (ASA). The Interest Group aims eventually to be approved as a Section of the ASA
