May 6-8, 2021
Nowadays, statisticians and health data scientists actively work together on the frontier of biological, medical, and public health research. The transdisciplinary collaboration not only develops the modern foundations of Health Data Science but also accelerates the pace of scientific discovery and innovation.

The First CANSSI-NISS Health Data Science Workshop will be held virtually on May 7-8, 2021, with pre-workshop short courses on May 6th. The workshop brings statisticians and health data scientists from the U.S. and Canada together to explore current approaches and new challenges for learning Big Data in Health Data Science.

The two-day workshop consists of two keynote presentations, four invited sessions, a poster competition for students and new researchers, a late-breaking session on AI and Health Data Science, and a networking happy hour. The themed invited sessions will explore current approaches and new challenges in

(i) Statistical Issues with COVID-19,
(ii) Statistical Problems in Imaging and Genetics,
(iii) Causal Inference for Big Health Data, and
(iv) Methods for Electronic Health Data.
