Yes, believe it or not, submissions for symposia, colloquia, and the
like have to be in by June 20 for next year's meeting of the American
College of Sports Medicine in Baltimore, May 30 to June 2.
Ian Shrier <ishrier@...
> has suggested a mini-symposium
entitled "New Trends in Statistics for Epidemiologists". The
objective is to teach the fundamental concepts in generalized
estimating equations, survival analysis, and path analysis. He would
like suggestions for speakers for these topics. He is prepared to do
survival analysis, if no-one else can.
We also need something for experimental exercise scientists. See
below for some ideas that are already floating around. Please email
me about which of these or any other topics you would like to see at
Baltimore. The format would probably be a multi-speaker workshop
presentation of the kind that has been well attended and appreciated
in the past. Preferably we want three or more topics that hang
Volunteers or suggestions for speakers for these or other topics
would also be welcome. For reasons of economy the conference
organizers prefer speakers who are members of ACSM.
Bayesian Analysis: updating your beliefs.
Individual Responses to a Treatment: responders and non-responders
Coping with Bad Residuals: log transformation, rank transformation
(non-parametric analyses), logistic regression.
The Best Measure of Reliability/Validity: standard error of
measurement/estimate, limits of agreement, or correlation?
