Biostatistics has experienced exciting developments in the last decade. While Biostatistics textbooks are still focused on presenting traditional approaches to an ever-growing number of clinicians and researchers in the biological sciences, the advent of big data and the quest for precision medicine have significantly transformed the landscape of Biostatistics. Therefore, Biostatistics necessarily overlaps with other important research tracks at the forefront of today research: the analysis of complex data, neuroscience, causality and network modeling are just a few examples.

The proposed track compiles a set of sessions that comprise many current hot topics in Biostatistics: the analysis of dependent and correlated data, advances in statistical genetics, including the analysis of the emerging microbiome samples, the challenges put forward by the analysis of electronic health records, dealing with high-dimensional complex data and large-scale computing in biomedical applications.
