March 16th - 18th, 2014
The aim of the FDA/PhUSE annual Computational Science Symposium is to provide updates on collaborations with project groups to improve standards, tools and processes across regulatory review and computational science.
The annual Computational Science Symposium will bring FDA, industry and academia together for updates and work on collaborations established at previous symposiums and continued throughout the year. Additional collaborative projects will be created to address additional challenges related to the access and review of data to support product development. The groups will work on possible solutions and practical implementations with the goal of helping the broader community align and share experiences to advance computational science.
Over the last few months the CSS Steering Committee has performed a formal review of each working group's mission, objectives and progress since the last meeting. Based on this review and to maximize efficiency and organization, the groups will be re-organized into fewer working groups with broader focus with each working group having multiple specific, well-defined projects within it. Click here to see the summary of the working groups which will move forward within the initiative.
As part of the annual CSS, the FDA, in co-sponsorship with PhUSE, is accepting proposals for new projects. A proposal will address problems of significant relevance to computational science related to drug, biologic and device development and must meet all of the guidelines for projects within the FDA/PhUSE collaboration.

The FDA/PhUSE Computational Science Collaboration would like to formally announce an emerging technologies session on March 19th at the Annual Computational Science Symposium in Silver Spring, MD. The session will include demonstrations, presentations, and an open panel discussion to address real examples of promising new technologies. The goal of the collaboration is to expand our collective vision of computational science and technologies and provide a forum for understanding and discussing the strategic allotment of resources. An emerging technologies working group will commence immediately following the panel discussion.
The conference will commence at 5pm on Sunday, March 16th with the opening sessions and end at 5pm on Tuesday, March 18th.
Advanced onsite registration will open on Sunday, March 16th between 3pm - 5pm.
