  • Introduction to Effective Medical Writing

    25 - 26 September 2017

    Berlin, Germany

    Introduction to Effective Medical Writing https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-effective-medical-writing Medical writing is both a science and an art. The art of medical writing is to comprehend and present scientific information clearly to suit the specific target audience's level of understanding including patients, the general public, physicians and/or regulatory agencies. Often it is not poor science that kills a scientific paper; rather, it is the lack of clarity and continuity. Poor writing can be very costly to companies and frequently slows the review process of regulatory submissions. In this 2-day course, you will learn about the different types of medical writing and how to write effectively. We will examine various types of writing including abstracts, regulatory documents, and patient education materials. We will also consider ethical issues that face medical writers. You will gain insight into the design of effective documents and what goes into putting together a compelling manuscript. You will also learn how to keep your writing free of medical jargon and common grammatical errors, while ensuring the scientific integrity of your work. 2017-09-25 09:00:00 UTC 2017-09-26 05:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education Mohrenstraße 30, 30, Mohrenstraße, Berlin, Germany Mohrenstraße 30, 30, Mohrenstraße Berlin Germany The Center for Professional Innovation & Education info@cfpie.com The Center for Professional Innovation & Education PharmaceuticalMedical Device 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Medical WritingRegulatorySubmissions

    Medical Devices: EU Directives, Guidance, CE Marking and ISO Standard Certifications https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/medical-devices-eu-directives-guidance-ce-marking-and-iso-standard-certifications Things are changing for Medical Devices and IVDs in the European Union (EU): new fundamental standards, new EU device regulations and BREXIT. What is now needed to enter or, more importantly, to maintain presence in this attractive marketplace for medical devices? Satisfying requirements harmonized across the 28 member states should be a straightforward process to get products approved for distribution in each country - but is it? This course identifies and explains the requirements – old and new – for medical devices, the steps to obtain entry into the marketplace (including setting up on-going procedures and relationships), the increasing importance of Clinical Evaluation and Post Market surveillance, Notified Bodies and Competent Authorities. The course also shares some lessons learned from the Course Director, who has over 25 years of experience with CE marking medical devices for distribution in the EU. 2017-10-12 09:00:00 UTC 2017-10-13 17:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education The Berlin Hilton, Berlin, Germany The Berlin Hilton Berlin Germany [] info@cfpie.com The Center for Professional Innovation & Education Medical Device 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served EU DirectivesGuidanceCE MarkingISO Standard

  • Integration of Risk Management Principles and Activities into the Quality System

    16 - 17 October 2017

    Berlin, Germany

    Integration of Risk Management Principles and Activities into the Quality System https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/integration-of-risk-management-principles-and-activities-into-the-quality-system The regulatory and business requirements for the pharma, diagnostics, and medical-device fields continue to update, blend, overlap, and blur. With these changes, the importance of risk assessment—and risk management—gains higher business and regulatory significance. It now becomes even more important for professionals in these fields to recognize, accept, understand, and respond to these changes —particularly since new regulatory requirements have emerged within this changing environment. The market’s Tolerance for Failure of Drugs, Devices, and IVDs has reduced significantly in recent decades. This reduction reflects a general loss of confidence in the medical industry. The adoption of formal Quality Management Systems (QMS) has recovered some of that confidence, but we must still do more. This course addresses what we can do. 2017-10-16 09:00:00 UTC 2017-10-17 17:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education The Berlin Hilton, Berlin, Germany The Berlin Hilton Berlin Germany [] info@cfpie.com The Center for Professional Innovation & Education quality/production managersengineersauditorsregulatory/quality professionalsclinical/product specialists R&D engineerslaboratory professionalsproduct-development professionals 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served diagnosticsPharmaceuticalMedical DeviceBiotech

    HPC-lunchbox: worker and atools https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/hpc-lunchbox-worker-and-atools In many scientific domains experiments are set up to explore parameter spaces. This type of workload can easily be parallelized since the individual computations are independent. However, a considerable amount of bookkeeping may be required to perform such experiments effectively.Two frameworks have been developed to make this type of task trivial.worker was developed in 2010, and has been improved over the years.atools is a recent development to accommodate use cases that worker is not optimal for.Both frameworks have a fairly large feature set, including monitoring of running jobs to keep track of the tasks that are completed/failed/pending, resuming interrupted tasks, merging output from the tasks, and so on.This lunchbox session will introduce you to these tools, and illustrate the more advanced features. You will also get tips on how to use the tools efficiently.

    Code Optimization https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/code-optimization Attention to the quality of code in terms of its computational efficiency is a rather important aspect of using HPC system effectively.In the introduction, we will cover how to quantify performance, and how to dimension computations to ensure optimal use of the compute resources. In order to write efficient scientific code, the developer should be familiar with a number of important aspects of modern CPU architecture.The impact of the NUMA memory architecture, vectorization and out-of-order execution will be discussed. The NUMA memory architecture also has its impact at the level of a compute node, while the interconnect properties will determine performance of distributed applications.Several tools will help the developer to profile his application to discover performance hot spots, and make informed decisions on how to improve the efficiency of the code, or the use of resources.

  • C++ for scientific computing

    C++ for scientific computing https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/c-for-scientific-computing C++ is a modern, object-oriented programming language that is used tobuild industry strength applications when performance and reliability are important.The language has a reputation of being challenging to use, but forscientific programming, a core set of features is sufficient for most programming tasks. In this training, we will concentrate on thatfeature set. Although the scope is scientific programming, most of the material presented in Bjarne Stroustrup's excellent "A tour of C++" is covered, as well as some addition introduced in the C++14 specification.The STL (Standard Template Library) will be covered in some detail since selecting the appropriate data structures and algorithms is one of themost important design decisions. We will see that C++ code can be compact, straightforward, elegant and fun to write, and is a very useful programming language for more demanding applications.Hands-on and programming challenges will be provided.
