Researchers often have difficulties collecting enough data to obtain statistical power: when target groups are small, hard to access, or measuring the participants requires prohibitive costs. Such obstacles to collecting data usually lead to a limited data set. Researchers can overcome this through simplifying their hypotheses and statistical models. However, this strategy is undesirable since the intended research question cannot be answered in this way.

The aim of the S4 Conference (March 6-7, 2018; with pre-/post-conference workshops on 5 and 8 March) is to bring together international researchers working to provide Solutions for Small Sample Size and to share information, learn about new developments and discuss solutions for typical small sample size problems. We will organize such meetings once a year for all interested researchers (applied researchers, statisticians & methodologists).

The call for posters is still open. At this conference – where dialogue is encouraged – the posters can serve to share a question – a struggle in dealing with small sample sizes – with other researchers and methodologists and statisticians to find solutions to their small sample problem.
