Attend the virtual Cochrane Colloquium

5 10 2008

The annual Cochrane Colloquium is now ongoing in Freiburg, Germany. The theme is “Evidence in the Era of Globalisation.”

As many readers may already know, the Cochrane (CC, Cochrane Collaboration) is an international not-for-profit and independent organization, dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. It produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions (see Glossary).

The yearly Cochrane Colloquium is meant for members of the CC, and those interested in the organization.

For those that cannot attend the meeting, there is an opportunity to virtually view the following items:

To go to the individual virtual items you can click one of the items above.

You can also go to “Welcome” by following this link and go to the Virtual Colloquium. It is easier to switch to another item from there.

It should be noted that there is also a lot uncovered by the virtual media: the meetings and workshops (of course), as well as the (non plenary) oral sessions and even the very interesting opening session with the following speakers: Gerd Antes (German Congres Centre), Tikki Pang (WHO) and Pekka Mustonen (Duodecim).

An overview of the colloquium program can be found here.

All great ideas but I would also add another item to it: consider doing a virtual event/meeting. Virtual events and meetings are a great way to stay in front of customers, generate new leads and help close business already in the pipeline. These solutions are being deployed so rapidly by companies that the market is projected to exceed $18 billion by 2015. If you are interested in how you can use virtual environments attend the Virtual Edge Summit Feb. 22-23 (virtually or in-person if you are in/near Silicon Valley). There is no registration fee if you take a short survey.

Virtual Edge Summit 2010 is the only event that focuses exclusively on providing education, training and solutions for planning and producing virtual events, meetings and communities. Over 2 days, 80 experts will share their experience with you, and be available for one-on-ones. The event also offers a rich program for featuring experts from Cisco, Stanford, IBM, Disney SAP, Oracle, Intel as well as top virtual technology and service providers like InXpo, ON24, 6Connex, Stream57, CGS VirtualEvents365, George P. Johnson, Unisfair and Digitell.

When: February 22-23, 2010 8am until 6pm

Where: At the Santa Clara Convention Center in California and virtually in browser based virtual environments offering 2D and 3D experiences.
