2014 ISCB Conference Awards for Scientists

The 2014 ISCB Conference Awards for Scientists (CAS) are available to biostatisticians from the countries underdeveloped in clinical biostatistics to attend the 2014 ISCB Annual Conference in Vienna, Austria, and present a paper there. Up to three CAS awards will be granted in 2014.
    
Only original contributions, not previously presented or published before the time of the application will be considered. Also, the applications with purely theoretical content or those representing mere routine analyses of data sets are not encouraged by the ISCB.
    
This year the CAS award consists of a free registration to the 2014 ISCB Annual Conference, free accommodation, free subscription to one short course selected by the applicant, invitation to Conference Dinner sponsored by the ISCB, and the travel support.
    
Scientists should submit their completed application form, one-page abstract and full poster or paper/presentation to Zdeněk Valenta (see the address below).
    
Abstracts not granted the CAS award will be eligible for an independent review by the 2014 Scientific Programme Committee (SPC). However, the abstracts will be forwarded to the SPC only at the specific request of the applicant.
    
Caution: The authors of the abstracts not granted the CAS award that will subsequently have been accepted by the Vienna SPC, shall not be eligible for additional ISCB support.

Please note that students are not eligible for the CAS.
