Adaptive Designs and Multiple Testing Procedures

Joint Working Group (Section) of the ROeS and the German Region of the IBS

The working group has the aim to promote the development and application of biostatistical procedures in the fields of multiple testing and group adaptive designs. The working group organises an annual workshop which offers presentations on the state of the art research on adaptive designs and multiple testing procedures and related fields, but also showcases of the practical implementation of these methods. practical implementation of these methods.

Next workshop:

Adaptive Designs and Multiple Testing Procedures Workshop 2017

Will be held June 8-9, 2017 in Cambirdge, UK at the The Sainsbury Laboratory. The workshop will be organised in collaboration with the Adaptive designs working group of the MRC network of Hubs for Trials Methodology Research and the Joint Working Group of the Austro-Swiss and the German Regions of the IBS on Adaptive Designs and Multiple Testing Procedures. For further information please see the workshop website.
