It is with great anticipation that we look forward to the upcoming ENAR 2024 Spring Meeting, to be held from March 10th to 13th, 2024, at the Marriott Baltimore Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland. The 2024 meeting theme is “ENAR – A Home for Every Biostatistician”.

The Program Committee for ENAR 2024 has now begun accepting formal proposals for invited paper sessions. Following the long-standing collaborative relationship between IMS and ENAR, nine of these invited sessions are dedicated to contributions from IMS members. As the IMS Chair for ENAR 2024, I am writing to invite you to submit your innovative session proposals. Your participation is pivotal to maintaining a strong IMS presence at ENAR. To submit your proposals, please visit the following link here: ENAR 2024 Invited Session Proposal Form.

To indicate your participation in the dedicated IMS invited sessions, please ensure to check “YES”  to the question “Is this an IMS Invited Session?”..

This year, ENAR welcomes proposals across a spectrum of categories, methods development/theory, applied statistics, consulting and team science, teaching and mentoring, capacity building, and diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. We are particularly interested in proposals that align with the themes of the ENAR meeting and the mission of the IMS in supporting foundational statistics and probability. Furthermore, we encourage submissions that propose diverse and inclusive panels of speakers and those with the potential for broad, real-world scientific impact.

Please note, the deadline for the submissions of IMS invited sessions is June 30, 2023, at 11:59 pm ET. Don’t miss this opportunity to contribute to an enriching experience for all attendees at ENAR 2024.

Thank you for your continued commitment to the field of mathematical statistics.

Ying Wei,

IMS Chair for ENAR 2024
