Dear all,

On behalf of the scientific committee of the 6th EMR-IBS conference, we would like to invite you to participate in the conference that will be held from 8 to 12 May 2011 at Hersonissos in the Greek island of Crete.

Information can be found on:


The conference is dedicated to the memory of Steve Lagakos and coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the formation of the EMR region of IBS.

Steve Lagakos, in his efforts of promoting Biostatistical Science in the Region, has been a great supporter of EMR, participating actively in all of the Regional conferences. In 2005, he gave a full day workshop on Clinical Trials to medical professionals to provide the funding to support student participation in the 3rd EMR conference. He had the vision of making the region an educational center for young Biostatisticians and Clinical Trialists, through his collaboration with Postgraduate Studies Programs where he served as a visiting instructor for many years and by co-founding in 2007, Frontier Science Foundation-Hellas (FSF-H), in Athens, Greece.

The EMR Region of IBS includes the following countries: Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Israel, Jordan, Palestinian National Authority, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and recently, Bulgaria. The International Biometric Society (IBS) is a worldwide organization that exists to promote and develop the use of sound biometric (biostatistical, biomathematical) methodology in the study of medicine, biology and agriculture. Members include biostatisticians and general applied statisticians, as well as epidemiologists, clinicians, biologists and agriculturists with a strong interest in the methodological aspects of their subject. Short courses are scheduled for Sunday 8 May.

We hope you will be able to participate at the 6th EMR-IBS Conference.

We’ll be happy to answer any inquiries regarding the meeting,

Urania Dafni

Scientific Committee Chair,

6th EMR-IBS Conference
