Welcome to Copenhagen for the 2020 ANCR annual symposium!

The symposium covers a broad range of topics within epidemiology with a basis in use of register data for risk estimates, prognostics and prediction.

Two pre-meeting workshops will be held on 8 September; one directed at expert registrars and the other targeted at statisticians and epidemiologists. Please see short descriptions here.

The two-day symposium is a great option for scientific networking and for younger researchers to develop their skills as well as their scientific networks. Sessions will cover e.g. cancer surveillance, epidemiology, early diagnostics, risk factors, outcome studies etc.

See the programme.

We look forward to seeing you in September!
