In 2015 the topic of the annual PhUSE conference will be "Clinical Data Science - From Data to Knowledge".

The theme of the 2015 PhUSE Annual Conference in Vienna will be “Clinical Data Science - From Data to Knowledge”.

High volumes of life science data are becoming available from new sources like health care records, health apps, social media platforms for patients and patient claims databases. New skill sets are required for people connecting and analysing all kind of clinical data. Transferring different types of clinical data to knowledge requires a deep understanding of the data. The role of those who collect, transform and analyse clinical data is referred to as a “Clinical Data Scientist”.

A Clinical Data Scientist is someone who has expertise in clinical trials, understanding the complete drug development process; in data preparation and integration; in statistics, understanding methods used within clinical trials; in advanced computing, ability to use multiple tools; and in the visualisation of data. A Clinical Data Scientist works with scientific rigour in a collaborative manner and most importantly applies a “Hacker Mindset” to every problem.

Today, someone working on biometric data needs to have more skills besides statistics and programming to analyse data collected in controlled clinical trials and other sources! This is how our profession can truly contribute and add value to the science by turning data in to knowledge.

Everything that made PhUSE so successful over the years will continue in 2015 (with some new influences): The streams remain the backbone of the conference, inspiring keynote speakers will start each of the days of the conference, the discussion clubs that open the floor for debates on relevant subjects, new topics will be identified for our popular hands-on workshops and of course the conference remains a unique opportunity to network and share knowledge with colleagues and friends.

Patients will continue to be at the forefront at the Vienna conference. Together, let’s make sure this key element remains a core value, and ensure that the conference theme reflect the important transformation of our role!

How to publish a Conference Wiki

General guidelines on how to publish a Wiki can be found in the general Wiki Author Training.

There are different options if you want to publish a Wiki for the Budapest conference.

  1. Publish a Wiki in addition to a static PDF paper
  2. Publish a Wiki instead of a static PDF paper

You also should decide if you want to open your Wiki for global collaboration prior to the conference or after the conference. In either way you should let your stream chair know your decision. Your stream chair can lock your Wiki so that it cannot be changed by other users (including yourself).

Wiki in addition to a PDF paper

If you want to publish a Wiki in addition to a PDF paper the easiest way to avoid redundancies is to publish a Wiki where you briefly summarize your paper and add a link to your paper. You also can upload your PDF to the Wiki and refer to it.

After the creation of the Wiki please let your stream chair know if you want your Wiki to be locked for changes prior to the conference.

An example for an open Wiki in addition to a PDF can be found here: Review of Statistical Analysis Plans (Summary).

An example for a locked Wiki in addition to a PDF can be found here: Review of Statistical Analysis Plans (Summary locked).


In all cases please keep the title of your Wiki consistent with your paper title from the call for paper system.

Wiki instead of a PDF paper

If you want to publish a Wiki instead of a static PDF paper you have to publish all your content on the Wiki prior to the conference. After the creation of the Wiki please let your stream chair know if you want your Wiki to be locked for changes prior to the conference.

An example for an open Wiki instead of a PDF can be found here: Review of Statistical Analysis Plans.

An example for a locked Wiki instead of PDF can be found here: Review of Statistical Analysis Plans (locked)
