Just a quick note to mention that bookings are now being taken for the next Conference of the Scientific Archivists Group (SAG). This will be of interest to anyone who is involved in the management and/or archiving of scientific records, especially those working in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and healthcare sectors.
For the first time, the conference will include parallel “clinical” and “pre-clinical” tracks, with topics that should be of particular interest to those specialist areas. So in the clinical track the sessions include an update on the TMF Reference Model and selecting an eTMF solution, whilst the pre-clinical track includes managing GLP/GMP samples and how to prepare for GLP/GMP compliance audits. We also have keynote sessions from the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Added to this are updates from the two Special Interest Groups – Electronic Records and Good Clinical Practice – and various networking sessions (including drinks reception and gala dinner), and it all makes for a fabulous event!
This is going to be a sell-out event and ticket numbers are limited so please make sure you book early. The dates are 21-22 April 2016. The venue is the Crowne Plaza City Centre Hotel, Birmingham, UK. Prices go up by 15% once the Early Bird booking period closes and SAG members benefit from a 15% discount on the displayed prices.
