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.
