It has gained popularity in fields including statistics, biostatistics, biomedical science, computer science, economics, epidemiology, and various social sciences. This conference will focus on the latest development in the statistic on causal inference in biostatistics.The program of the conference will target university-based statisticians and industry-based statisticians. The conference follows last year’s successful causal inference conference in Beijing.
