National group of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB) was founded on September 11, 2006. The group brings together medical statisticians from various areas of biomedical research practicing at academic institutions in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Their interest lies in developing advanced statistical methods, fostering their application in biomedical field and keeping in touch with the recent advances in numerous areas of medical statistics. Members of the EuroMISE center were substantially involved in initiating the group’s existence, some of them currently serve on its leadership and a number of them are involved as active members. Scientific seminars and workshops comprise a principal activity of the group. Recently, in cooperation with the Institute of Computer Science AS CR and the EuroMISE Center the group organized 30th Annual Conference of the ISCB, which was held in Prague 23-27 August 2009. The Conference was attended by 460 researchers from 35 countries. The successful international event underlined a growing importance of advanced statistical methodologies supporting biomedical research.
