About the Conference

2020 Conference

2021 Conference

PSI are pleased to announce the countdown to the 2021 Conference, has begun! The conference will be held at Gothia Towers, Gothenburg, between 20 to 23 June 2021. Registration will open in November, with the early bird deadline for registrations on 19 March 2021.

The conference will consist of a variety of plenary and parallel sessions, as well as breakout discussion sessions, workshops, a poster session and the annual general meeting. Please note the conference will be a full 3 days from Monday to Wednesday, with an optional half day training course on Sunday afternoon (at an additional cost). A draft agenda will be released later.

Submission for oral and poster abstracts will open late September/early October. Due to popular demand, we are keeping the 10% discount on the 3 day conference price, for anyone selected for an oral presentation.

Please note the submission deadlines:

  • Oral abstract: 20 November 2020
  • Poster abstract: 9 February 2020

We will be welcoming abstracts on any subject, but will be particularly interested in the following:

  • Bayesian topics within early or late phase
  • Combining different sources of data
  • COVID-19 – Developing Treatments
  • COVID-19 – Implications on Drug Development
  • Data Science and it’s applications
  • Data Visualisation
  • Decision Making including policies/go-no-go/development programs
  • Estimands Methods and Theory
  • Estimand Case Studies
  • Innovative Trial Design
  • Non-parametric Statistics
  • Personalised Medicine
  • Pre-clinical and Early Phase Statistics

If you are a career young statistician (approximately less than 5 years working in the pharmaceutical industry) then you will have the option to present in a dedicated contributed session alongside your peers. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in presenting in a friendly environment and to network with those of a similar experience at other companies.

Given the success of our 1 minute poster preview in the last few years, anyone selected for a poster will be asked if they would like to give a 1 minute presentation as part of the final session on the Monday leading into the poster session, in order to give people a brief insight into their work.

We hope you will join us in building on the huge success of previous conferences and make 2021 in Gothenburg an even greater event.
