The 2017 ICSA China Conference in Jilin invites applications for Junior Researcher Award. Awardees will be selected from junior researchers who submit their papers for presentations at the conference in Jilin. This award will be sponsored by Biostatistics & Data Sciences Department at Boehringer Ingelheim (BI).

There has been no change on the regular fee for 16 years, and no change on lifetime membership for 7 years. The income from current membership fees can cover less than half of ICSA expenses. Unlike ASA, ENAR and IMS, current ICSA operations are mainly based on volunteers. Although ICSA pays IT and office staff, the payment is minimal and our IT needs much more investment to keep current support, let alone better support. The membership fee has been reviewed by the membership committee several times and the rate change has been discussed in the board of directors meetings.

The environment has become increasingly important in recent years as pressures from human impacts and interactions are starting to be realized. This is not an isolated or a local issue. Most indicators suggest that global warming is already showing impacts throughout the world and extreme weather events have become commonplace. Furthermore, the impact of air pollution, such as smog and high PM2.5 measurements, on health and economy is once again a serious problem in developed and developing countries worldwide.

Dear ICSA members,

We would like to draw your attention about the deadline extension (Feb. 16, 2017) for the abstract submission for The 10th International Multiple Comparison Procedures. The MCP2017 organizing committee encourage you to submit abstract through the conference web site  (http://www.mcp-conference.org). 

Best regards

OICSA
