This international symposium attracts researchers, healthcare workers, policy makers and manufacturers actively involved in the development, evaluation or regulation of tests, (bio)markers, models, tools, apps, devices or any other modality used for the purpose of diagnosis, prognosis, risk stratification or (disease or therapy) monitoring.
The MEMTAB2020 symposium is hosted by Professor Ben Van Calster, Professor Ann Van den Bruel, Professor Jan Verbakel and the University of Leuven's EPI-Centre, part of the Department of Public Health and Primary Care.
We look forward to welcoming you to Leuven!
Coronavirus (COVID-19) update message from the LOC:
We are all concerned by the spread of the coronavirus and know that many of you have questions regarding what impact it may have on our meeting, so we just wanted to make it clear that the MEMTAB2020 symposium will be going ahead as planned on July 2-3, 2020.

This international symposium attracts researchers, healthcare workers, policy makers and manufacturers actively involved in the development, evaluation or regulation of tests, (bio)markers, models, tools, apps, devices or any other modality used for the purpose of diagnosis, prognosis, risk stratification or (disease or therapy) monitoring. Rapid technological progress coupled with the significant methodological complexities involved in developing, evaluating and implementing tests, markers, models or devices create formidable challenges. Yet these challenges are matched by unique opportunities, while the wide array of involved subdisciplines create an exciting milieu for the generation of new ideas and directions.
This symposium provides a forum for disseminating knowledge at the forefront of current research, and for stimulating dialogue that will propel future thought and endeavours to tackle the methodological and practical complexities facing the medical diagnostic, prognostic and monitoring field today.
The 2020 event is specifically aimed at bringing together researchers from the diverse reaches of test evaluation, from in vitro test developers, industry and regulatory representatives, through methodologists, guideline developers and practising clinicians, in the hope of improving current understanding through knowledge exchange, and forging our diverse experiences and perspectives to delineate the future direction of diagnostic test research. In this respect, it is the only conference in the world that provides a platform dedicated to the investigation of medical tests, markers, models and other devices used for diagnosis prognosis and monitoring.
There are different transport options available to the conference venue, depending on your arrival location.
