We are pleased to present a diverse range of invited speakers, including Dr Kris Thayer, Director of the Integrated Risk Information Systems Division at the US Environmental Protection Agency; Dr Allison Harbin, freelance writer and editor whose blog describing her PhD experience has resonated with graduate students across disciplines; Sir Jim Smith, Director of Science at the Wellcome Trust, and Dr Jonathan Kimmelman, a bioethicist concerned with the social and policy dimensions of translational research. Further details of these and other speakers are available here.

Our ambition has been to create a faculty of insiders and outsiders, of those immersed every day in the challenges of biomedical research and of others from outside this narrow world, that their perspective may bring new understanding to the problems we face.

The meeting will include an inaugural EQUATOR Doug Altman lecture by Prof Isabelle Boutron, Université Paris Descartes, France. As well as these invited speakers, submitted research (oral presentations and posters), we have created space for less traditional conference formats including so-called focus tracks (structured discussions between conference participants, proposed by anyone attending the conference) and formats encouraging authors to present content that is relevant to the conference themes, however doesn’t fit into the research abstract format („Concepts, Initiatives and Ideas”). Details of these can be found here.

The conference, however, will only be truly successful through the contributions of all participants. We welcome people at every career stage, and from every country. To support this participation, we will support the attendance of junior researchers and those from emerging or developing countries (LDC) through a bursary scheme, provided for the top 10 abstract submissions with first authors who are ECRs, and for the top 10 with first authors from LDC. Please check here for more details.

Please bring your most interesting work, an open mind, and an enthusiasm to engage with your colleagues. For “traditional” research submissions, we are interested in the most relevant, rigorous and contemporary material; and we are particularly interested in work which describes the evaluation or implementation of strategies to reduce research waste.
