The Joint Statistical Meetings is the largest gathering of statisticians and data scientists held in North America and features various topics ranging from statistical applications to methodology and theory to the expanding boundaries of statistics, such as analytics and data science. More than 6,500 attendees from 52 countries usually attend. It also offers a unique opportunity for statisticians in academia, industry, and government to exchange ideas and explore opportunities for collaboration.

The nQuery booth was busy as always and the team were delighted to meet both long term and new nQuery users alike. We took this chance to get direct feedback on some great new features we plan to release in the near future and also to discuss how nQuery can further help our users with sample size and power analysis for frequentist, Bayesian and adaptive trial planning.

Ronan Fitzpatrick Head of Statistics at Statsols and the Lead Researcher for nQuery Sample Size Software, in association with fellow Statistician Yongqiang Tang, presented a poster session at JSM 2019. The poster was tilted "Sample size calculation for the Andersen-Gill model comparing rates of recurrent events" .

JSM 2019 in Denver was an excellent conference with many useful insights and innovations when it comes to planning clinical trials. Sessions on topics such as the challenges for designing immunotherapy design were insightful and some interesting talks on new adaptive designs will be interesting to follow up on.

In addition, nQuery was delighted to show off the work of Yongqiang Tang about sample size for Andersen-Gill model during the Biopharmaceutical Section poster session and look forward to presenting more innovative work in the field of study planning and sample size determination at future events.
