November 09 - November 10

The conference is a two-day event that will consist of pre-conference workshops, invited and submitted presentations and poster sessions. At this conference, epidemiologists, health statisticians, risk assessors, other users of epidemiological evidence (e.g. toxicologists and nutritionists) as well as risk managers and stakeholders are invited to share and discuss their experiences to promote the use of epidemiological data for health risk assessments.

The 3 main topics of the event:

  • Using epidemiological studies in health risk assessments: Discussion and exchange on the current state of the use of epidemiological evidence in risk assessment.
  • Critical appraisal of individual epidemiological studies: Critical appraisal of the body of evidence plays a central role in the field of risk assessment and therefore requires well-established and standardized methods. Established methods and tools as well as new developments in the field of critical appraisal and risk of bias (RoB) of epidemiological studies assessment will be presented and discussed.
  • Appraising the epidemiological evidence on causality: Within this topic, current perspectives on how evidence from epidemiological studies can be used to answer causality questions will be presented and discussed.

The conference is free of charge, but registration is required until 25 October 2023. The detailed programme will be available from the end of August.
