7 February 2006 – 9 February 2006
The 8th* Annual Population Analysis WorkShop (PAWS) and Population Approach Group in Australia and New Zealand (PAGANZ) meeting will be held in Auckland, New Zealand. Both meetings will take place within the University of Auckland’s Grafton Campus.
Weather at this time of year will be typically warm, with daytime temperatures in the 20-25 range. It may rain but not for long. Rainbows are likely 🙂
*=The 2006 meeting was announced as the 9th meeting. After discussion at the 2006 AGM it was agreed that the PAGANZA meeting should be considered as being a special meeting in 2002 and not part of the annual series. Therefore the 2006 meeting is the 8th annual meeting of PAGANZ.

Who should attend?
The PAWS and 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 lead 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.
The dates are 7-9 February 2006. Note that Monday 6 February is Waitangi Day – a national holiday in New Zealand. This is a day of summer festivity so be sure to plan to be in New Zealand!
PAWS is expected to last 2 days. PAGANZ is a one day meeting.
Poster or Oral Communication Abstract Submission
As part of the PAGANZ scientific meeting researchers will have an opportunity to display research poster and also present a 5 minute overview of their research with a chance for discussion by attending scientists. This has been an informal and most valuable aspect of previous meetings.
Deadline for Abstract Submission: 31 January 2006
Abstract Format: Presenters should submit a 1 A4 page summary of their research with a Title, all authors and affiliations.
Abstracts should be emailed as a Word document attachment to:

The course 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 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.
PAGANZ Scientific Meeting
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. Two 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.
