*Who should attend? *

The PAGANZ meeting is the Australasian forum for scientists with a
research and professional interest in the use of the population approach
in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. A strong focus of this meeting
is the application of population modelling and simulation techniques in
the experimental, clinical and regulatory settings of drug development.

This meeting is designed for scientists and clinicians working in basic
or clinical pharmacology research, pharmaceutical industry, regulatory
bodies and postgraduate students. The meeting combines a hands on
workshop led by leaders in the field and a one day scientific meeting
giving researchers the opportunity to present and discuss their own
work. This is a very informal meeting and in the past has been very
productive in helping and guiding researchers in this important area of
pharmacology and drug development.

*Population Analysis WorkShop* (1.5 days)

The PAWS courses will consist of lectures and hands-on exercises at a
computer. During the hands-on exercises, tutors will be available for
consultation and assistance. The Beginners Course for NONMEM and the
Intermediate Course will be conducted as parallel sessions. Attendance
at the Intermediate Course requires experience with the conduct of at
least one population approach analysis.

The beginners course will introduce the theory and practice of
population modelling with NONMEM 7.

The intermediate course covers:

1. Missing data (1/2 day).

2. Simulating large models (1/2 day).

3. Optimal designs for model discrimination (1/2 day)

*PAGANZ Scientific Meeting* (1.5 days)

The PAGANZ meeting will include a symposium highlighting recent advances
in the application of the population approach to pharmacokinetics and
pharmacodynamics in different clinical settings and in drug development.
The symposium speakers will include international and local experts in
the field and presents a unique opportunity for Australasian scientists
to see the best in action. Sessions will be dedicated to free
communications and discussions providing a forum for researchers to
present their work and receive feedback and advice from their peers in
an informal setting.
