Copenhagen, April 24th – 26th, 2019
The University of Copenhagen was proud to host the second annual Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers (SafJR) conference outside the UK. This was the 8th annual SAfJR conference. It was a three-day event that was aimed at career-young statisticians with an interest in the application and development of time-to-event analysis and related topics. The conference provided a unique opportunity for participants to present and discuss their work with peers at a similar stage in their careers in a relaxed and friendly environment. The event included a short course on Recurrent Event Analysis by Per Kragh Andersen (University of Copenhagen), talks from keynote speakers Nadine Binder (University of Freiburg), Thomas Alexander Gerds (University of Copenhagen) and Christian Torp-Pedersen (Aalborg University), as well as contributed talks, a poster session and an informal and a formal conference dinner.

We, the SAfJR 2019 organising team, greatly enjoyed the conference, which took place during beautiful weather in the heart of Copenhagen at the Royal Library. Both keynote and contributed sessions were very inspiring and of impressive quality, especially taking into account that for many speakers this was their first conference. In particular we would like to congratulate the oral presentation award winner Sven Erik Ojavee and the poster presentation award winner Natasha A. Sahr with their excellent contributions.
We are looking forward to next year’s SAfJR conference, which will take place from April 1-3 in Ulm. See their website for more information: https://www.uni-ulm.de/safjr2020/
