IBC 2006 Call for Invited Session Proposals The Scientific Program Committee of the XXIII International Biometric Conference, to be held July 16-21, 2006 in Montreal (Quebec, Canada) is calling for invited session proposals. An invited session typically brings together a set of speakers (and possibly discussants) to describe the latest research in an area of statistical theory or application, and make it accessible to a non-expert audience. We encourage topics addressing a wide variety of emerging issues in biological sciences and life sciences. Please send proposals to the International Program Chair, Geert Verbeke ( [log in to unmask] ). Proposals should include * Your name, affiliation, contact address, email address * Suggested session title * Description of the proposed session * Suggested organizer (possibly yourself), speakers and discussant(s) Proposals should be submitted before October 1, 2004. The Scientific Program Committee will then select a number of proposals to be worked out in more detail.
