The 10th ISPE Asian Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology invites expressions of interest for symposia topics and speakers in the area of pharmacoepidemiology and drug safety.

Up to four such symposia will be accepted for inclusion in the program for ACPE 2017. These symposia will be programmed on either Monday 30 or Tuesday 31 October 2017.

Each symposium will be of strictly ninety minutes duration and can be expected to include multiple speakers whose contributions will be of interest to a substantial proportion of ACPE 2017 registrants.

All symposium expressions of interest will be evaluated by the ACPE 2017 Local Host Committee, as well as the ISPE ACPE International Steering Committee. Decisions on symposia to be included in the ACPE 2017 program will be final. – These decisions will be notified to the lead author of the symposium on 14 July 2017.

The lead author of each accepted symposium will be responsible for ensuring that by 1 September 2017 each of their symposium speakers is registered to attend ACPE 2017. They will also be responsible for timely liaison with the conference secretariat concerning biographical and pictorial information required for the conference program.

All expressions of interest need to be submitted in the format found in the proforma.
