eCTD 2010 Conference and Talking to the Speakers
I have often noticed that people attending conferences would like a chance to talk to the speakers that they have found to be interesting. Of course, you can ask questions at the end of the session, but often what you would really like to do is to pick someone’s brain – talk to them about your ideas and challenges.
That’s why you often see the speakers mobbed during the cocktail hour!
eCTD 2010, being held March 10th in my hometown of beautiful Philadelphia, PA, has implemented a practical strategy for extending this benefit to their conference attendees. The conference will feature three Interactive Break-Out Discussion Groups:
- Is Your Organization Moving toward Collaborative Authoring and Content Management – Hosted by Don Palmer, Associate Director, Regulatory Systems, Regulatory Affairs, MedImmune
- In Search of Submission Efficiencies: Is Your Organization Using Tools/Processes To Handle The Growing Workload of eCTDs? Hosted by S. Albert Edwards, Director, Regulatory Affairs Operations-US, Takeda
- Preparing for Future FDA, EU and ROW Initiatives for eCTD: What is ahead and what does it mean to you? Hosted by Meredith Sewell, Associate Director, Global Regulatory Affairs Publishing, Allergan, Inc.
During these breakouts, you’ll be able to have a more extended discussion with the speakers.
These folks are great speakers and industry experts – I can personally vouch for that! I’ll be at eCTD 2010 and urge you to consider attending as well. If you’ll be there, think about asking your colleagues what questions they wish they could ask Don, Meredith and Albert. It will make for interesting conversation.
After the conference, I’ll be posting highlights on The eCTD Summit.
