Dear colleagues,

the 13th annual Fall conference for the society for clinical Data management (scDm) will be
held in chicago, illinois from sunday, september 16th through Wednesday, september 19th at the
cosmopolitan Hyatt regency chicago, located within walking distance from michigan avenue and
navy Pier. With the help of a dedicated and hard working Fall conference committee, we have
created a program that is targeted at individuals in the discipline of clinical Data management at
various levels of experience.

the conference will kick off on monday morning with a keynote presentation entitled--
Pharmacovigilance in 2010 - What Should we be Prepared for?--by Dr. Hugo stephenson, mD,
President, Quintiles, inc., strategic research & safety. Dr. stephenson is one of the few executives
in the world who specializes in strategic research - a specialty discipline that blends knowledge of
research, marketing, law and psychology. Following regulatory approval, clinical researchers and
brand teams are continually looking at ways to determine “real world” safety through well-qualified
studies. Dr. stephenson’s recent book, Strategic Research: A Practical Handbook for Phase IIIB and
Phase IV Clinical Studies, provides an overview of study designs, advantages/disadvantages, dynamics and the value of
Phase iiiB and iV research.

additionally, prior to the conference will be an all-day leadership Forum for senior-level industry leaders, on sunday,
september 16th. Further details can be found at

there will be two tutorials offered at the Fall conference, both of which are full-day (six hour) intensive training sessions.
the first, offered on saturday, september 15th, will provide an introduction to coding. our second tutorial will take place
on sunday, september 16th and focus on managing lab Data.

the exhibit hall and conference schedule will provide attendees dedicated time to meet with all of our exhibiting vendors.
in addition, this year we are introducing the SCDM “Data Driven” Innovation Awards. this new program will give service
and technology providers an opportunity to highlight innovative solutions they have developed with their customers to meet
the needs of clinical Data management organizations.

the 13th annual conference will conclude at noon on Wednesday, september 19th.

Please join us in chicago for the scDm 13th annual conference. We look forward to meeting you and learning about your
vision of clinical Data management in the future.

Do data standards keep you up at night? Do you see cDisc in your coffee cup? Hear esource in your iPod?

if so, the 2007 society for clinical Data management leadership Forum is designed for you. Join your peers in a
meaningful, results-driven dialogue about the challenges and opportunities involved in the implementation of data
standards. through participation in Data standards and technology – Past, Present and Future, you and other industry
leaders, will help bring clarity and understanding to the Data management profession on this critical topic.

Beginning with an historical overview from experts in the discipline of Data standards, you will gain a better appreciation of
the path that led us to this important period in our industry.
general session Presenters include:
Clement McDonald, MD, Director of lister Hill center, national library of medicine, national institutes of Health
and Carl Kraus, MD, senior Director, infectious Diseases, i3research and Vice President, i3global technology

then, forum participants will hear from a variety of organizations (e.g. cro, Pharma, technology vendor, etc.) on how they
have interpreted the standardization movement and how they have implemented changes to date. this important session
will feature peer discussion on:

• How will new technology and data standards change data management?
• What kind of process and organizational changes are recommended to take place to ensure successful implementation?
• What is the effect on a business when adopting data standards?
• are there different interpretations of where data and technology standardization will take us?
• can companies take different paths and still be successful?
• How can you best ensure your organization is knowledgeable about the industry changes?
• can a better dialogue and understanding be had across the profession? How can scDm facilitate?
• How can continued changes and discoveries be communicated and shared?

Forum Facilitators include:
Anthony Costello, CCDM ,Vice President, Product Development and Data services, nextrials, inc.
Suzanne Lamerand, Vice President, Data management, Dsg, inc.
Ginger Kessing, senior Director, clinical Data management, Quintiles, inc.
Michael Luker, manager, medical informatics, eli lilly and company
Regina Nye, Director of Dictionaries and standards, global clinical Data services, Pfizer, inc.
Landen Bain, cDisc liaison to Healthcare, clinical Data interchange standards consortium (cDisc)

the leadership Forum is designed for 80 people and will allow for time for informal discussion in addition to the
presentations and group discussions.

those that would benefit most from this discussion are individuals who:
• Have director, managerial or supervisory responsibilities
• Have input and been involved in the strategic direction of their department and/or organization with regard to standards
and technology.

the cost to attend the leadership Forum is $250, which includes all session materials, continental breakfast, lunch and
two breaks. those attending both the leadership Forum and the 2007 scDm Fall conference will receive a reduction in
fee of $50.                                                                                                                        11

  Session IIC: Working Session on the CDISC Chapter Addition to the Good Clinical Data Management
  Practices Document (GCDMP)
  session chair: Dr. Khaled el-emam, chief scientist,
  trialstat corporation

  this workshop is the first meeting of the cDisc/standards task force. the objective of the task force is to identify and document
  how cDisc-developed (and other standards) impact data management, and provide input into how this can be addressed in the
  gcDmP. our first meeting will define the scope and work plan for the task force and outline the method by which the task force will
  address the topic of standards in the gcDmP. it is hoped that many of the participants in this session will continue on to become
  members of the task force and work toward the development of meaningful and useful gcDmP content for data management
  professionals. this will be a working session where small groups will discuss together and then provide a group debrief with their
  ideas to the group at large.

  Please note this session is limited to the first 60 people.
