The CRS Annual Meeting Program Committee is calling for proposals for the Invited Sessions. The Invited Sessions will make an attempt to bring a set of speakers and opinion leaders face-to-face to present and discuss the most recent results or important, relevant and emerging issues in an area of clinical research and translational medicine. The invited sessions areas can include (but should not be limited to) statistical science, data management, information technology, ethics, study management, policy, regulation, etc. For the 1st Annual Meeting, we would be particularly interested in sessions around the theme of “Changing paradigms in the management of clinical trials.” Besides the main theme, the Program Committee encourages a variety of topics and issues in clinical trials research that would be of general interest to the diverse audience that will participate in the meeting. There will be four simultaneous Invited Sessions during each of three 90-minute sessions for a total of up to 12 sessions.
Proposals should be submitted by December 31st, 2011 to ensure that they have the best chance of being selected for the Program, although late submissions will not be ruled out as long as program slots are available. The final selections from the submitted proposals will be made in January, 2012.
Please use the form below to upload your proposal for a 2012 invited session. Deadline is December 2012. Selection decisions will be made after that date.
