The Division of Biostatistics at the Medical College of Wisconsin announces a conference entitled
"Biostatistics in the Modern Computing Era" co-sponsored by the Division, the ASA Section on
Bayesian Statistical Science and the Wisconsin Chapter of the ASA.  It will include invited presentations
by leading statisticians from both the Bayesian and frequentist perspectives. Presentations will focus
on clinical trials, high-dimensional statistics, survival analysis, precision medicine and population
health.  A grant-writing workshop and a Bayesian additive regression trees short course will also
be presented.  The conference will be held September 28-30, 2017 at the Medical College of Wisconsin
in Milwaukee, WI.  Travel awards may be available for PhD students and junior faculty.  The autumn
weather in Milwaukee is historically very pleasant and enjoyable.  Beer-making, bratwurst and
Oktoberfest are great German traditions brought to Milwaukee and Wisconsin by waves of immigrants.
There will be social events featuring beer, bratwurst and biostatistics hosted at idyllic beer gardens on
the "cheese coast".  The main event will include an exclusive Oktoberfest engagement of polka-palooza
with The Polkaholics led by Dandy Don Hedeker with a guest appearance by fellow Imposterior Brad Carlin.
