*=The 2006 meeting was originally 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 was the 8th annual meeting of PAGANZ.

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.



The dates are 13-15 February 2007.

Note that Chinese New Year is on 18 Feb 2007. There will be many extra visitors in Singapore over this period so you are encouraged to book flights and accommodation as soon as you can.

Visiting Singapore at this time can be especially rewarding. Be sure to check out the updates on the many events that will be going on that week at


PAGANZ is a 3 day meeting. The first part of the meeting will be a Population Analysis Workshop (PAWS).


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 2007

Abstract Format: Presenters should submit an abstract on line at

The organizers reserve the right to accept abstracts based on suitability for the aims of PAGANZ.

PAWS Workshop

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.
