17 & 18 October

Hybrid format: Melbourne, and online

 We warmly invite you to join us at our second Australian Trials Methodology Conference, a hybrid event which will take place both in person and online on the 17th and 18th October 2023.

After conducting our first conference fully online due to COVID restrictions, we are delighted to announce our visiting international speakers James Wason and Thomas Jaki who will be presenting live in-person. Our Scientific Program Committee have assembled an exciting program including leading international speakers, some of whom will present live via video link. 

The meeting program will showcase cutting-edge trial design and analysis approaches in a way that is thought-provoking yet still accessible to biostatisticians, methodologists and trialists (across any clinical discipline) alike.

There will be ample opportunity for attendees to engage with speakers and fellow delegates both during the sessions and at the networking reception on the Tuesday evening. Those attending online will have similar opportunities, with the purpose-built conference platform enabling you to interact with online and in-person attendees throughout the event.


We hope you will join us in October.

Warm Regards,

Rhys Bowden, Chair, Conference Committee

Rebecca Harding, Deputy Chair, Conference Committee

Rory Wolfe, On behalf of the AusTriM Management Committee
