From attending to collaborating… this year, we have decided to go for a conference concept rather than a formal theme. The conference will continue to address relevant topics for pharmaceutical software users and this year, we want to promote new ways of sharing knowledge and interact in those face-to-face meetings. This vision started back in Basel 2009 when the Discussion Clubs were introduced and the feedback we received since then encouraged us to continue on this path.
PhUSE already provides a Wiki platform and Blogs Section to the PhUSE website where members already post, share and debate the whole year long. A great addition too will be that presenters will have an option to be able to submit their papers as Wikis instead of static pdf files, which will open the topic to a wide range of potential co-authors. PhUSE Wikis provide a great opportunity to keep our contributions as presenters up to date and allow for others to add their piece of knowledge to the puzzle. The presentations remain the corner stone of the conference and making the papers available as Wikis will provide a great opportunity for everyone to share knowledge moving forward.
In Budapest, PhUSE will be launching its first conference app including all abstracts, authors, schedule, maps and the functionality of tweeting about the presentations or events directly from the app.
You will also have the opportunity to learn new tools and techniques via computer-based hands-on training sessions together with other colleagues from the industry.
You can easily access all the PhUSE Budapest 2012 relevant information by clicking here PhUSE Budapest 2012
At the heart of the conference are the 15 streams that give a platform for presenters to share knowledge and exchange ideas.
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.
- Publish a Wiki in addition to a static PDF paper
- 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)
