On behalf of the organizing committee, I warmly invite you to the 12th International Conference of the International Biometric Society's Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR 2023) event that will be held in İzmir, the beautiful city of Türkiye, on May 15-18, 2023.
We are happy to be able to hold this event face-to-face after a long time. We are trying to prepare an event that is rich in both scientific and social aspects for you. EMR 2023 will include pre-conference tutorials, invited sessions, round tables as well as oral and poster presentations. The themes of the conference will include topics, but are not limited to, related to 'Statistics in the Pandemic and Post-Pandemic Period' and 'Biometrics in the Data Science Era'. The event will also include an honorary mini-symposium dedicated to marking the retirement of Professor Refik Burgut and Professor Ergun Karaağaoğlu. Both professors gave huge efforts of promoting Biostatistics in both Türkiye and the EMR region. This symposium will take place in the afternoon of the first day of the event and will include invited talks.
İzmir is the third largest metropolitan city in western Turkey, as well as a port city on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage. With its 8500-year history, İzmir has hosted many civilizations in its geography. Tepekule, which is the oldest and most historical city in the history of the West, was discovered in Izmir. The Temple of Artemis, one of the 7 wonders of the world, is in Ephesus. The conference venue of EMR 2023 is in the center of Izmir, within walking distance of Izmir Bay and the coastline. As part of the social program of the event, a social trip will be organized to Ephesus, The House of the Virgin Mary, and Sirince Village.
We will be very happy and honored to see you among us.
