#RQA2022 News

14th April 2022

We had a Programme Committee meeting this morning to go through the abstracts we have received to date and put them into the conference programme format. It will not be long until we have an almost full conference programme to share with potential delegates.

We do still have a few spaces, especially for Open Discussions, so if you would like to submit an abstract we have extended the deadline until 29th April 2022. 

16th March 2022 

Today we have launched our 'Call for Abstracts' for the conference in Brighton. There are four types of abstract which potential speakers can select:

  • (1) Open Discussion (held in a room of up to 40, with a microphone provided)
  • (2) Panel (Up to 3 faculty, to include delegate Q&A)
  • (3) Presentation (1 person to include delegate Q&A)
  • (4) Workshop (up to 3 faculty, roving microphone for delegate interaction).

We are also reviewing the process for submitting posters to be displayed at the conference, more details available soon.

24th February 2022 

Work on the programme has started in earnest, with our committees starting to discuss their involvement in recent meetings.  We will be giving anyone the chance to be involved by putting out a Call For Abstracts in the upcoming weeks - details will be made available through a seperate conference related email.

We are delighted that we are able to announce the full set of sponsors for the event.  We are grateful to all our sponsors and exhibitors for their support, especially given the break in our face to face activities.

Platinum - Sparta Systems

Gold - MasterControl, RiverArk and Veeva

Silver - Arriello

We do still have exhibition stands and other sponsorship opportunities available.  Take a look here if you are interested in advertising in Brighton.

The programme committee met last week to discuss the format of the programme and some critical timelines.  A call for abstracts will open soon for anyone interested in speaking.
