DESCRIPTION (Applicant's Description)
This proposal requests funds to support travel expenses of approximately 25
U.S. Scientists, of whom approximately ten participants have an official
capacity such as organizers and invited speakers and approximately fifteen
are young investigators (including women and minorities), to attend the
International Biometric Conference which will be held December 13-18, 1998
in Cape Town South Africa. The strength of the meetings lies in the broad
international participation of statisticians, biologists and mathematicians
interested in quantitative and statistical aspects of agriculture, biology,
genetics, epidemiology, pharmacology, medicine, ecology, public health and
other fields. Topics to be discussed on statistical issues directly related
to these areas include modeling and inference of infectious diseases,
cancer, HIV, pharmaceutical bioequivalence, longitudinal data analysis,
linear and generalized linear models, space-time epidemiological analyses
and models, survival analysis, optimal design mixtures, classification,
toxicology analyses, Gibbs sampling, genetics and environmetrics, all of
which have direct bearing on solutions to the major concerns of today
including ecology and the environment, AIDS, cancer and heart disease, plant
science epidemiology, agriculture, forestry, etc. In addition, discussions
on fundamental statistical issues of repeated measures, structural
inference, image processing and causal inference all have direct application
to current health related and agricultural sciences. It is anticipated that
the Conference, which is the major international meeting of biostatisticians
and biometricians throughout the world will be attended by 500 or more
scientists from the international community.
