Conference Preview: ISMPP Europe 2024

The 2024 European meeting of the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals takes place January 23 and 24, 2024, at Novotel London West. 

This year’s theme is “Innovation: The New Tradition.” Registration is open until January 9, 2024. The event promises a host of helpful sessions and networking opportunities across Europe. Here are some of our can’t-miss events during ISMPP Europe 2024.

Tuesday, January 23

Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 23. Registration remains open all day, allowing attendees to check in at a time that works best for them.

At 8 a.m., a special satellite session titled “Integrating AI in Medical Communications: Building Trust, Understanding and Adoption” will take place in the Mouton Cadet Suite. This session requires an additional registration fee, and space is limited. Video will be recorded, however. 

The Exhibit Hall on the Champagne Terrace opens at 9 a.m., and at 10 a.m. the conference officially opens with a welcome session and remarks from ISMPP’s president. 

After this, head to a 10:35 a.m. session titled “Medcomms 2030: A Blue Sky and Black Cloud Perspective,” hosted by moderator Jocelyn Woodcock, SVP and Senior Medical Director at Caudex. Panel participants include James Dathan, Global Publications Manager at AstraZeneca, and Bethany Whalley, Senior Scientific Publications Manager at Novo Nordisk.

Once you’ve enjoyed a networking lunch and tour of the exhibit space, 16 separate roundtable sessions kick off at 1:25 p.m.. These roundtables focus on various topics proposed by ISMPP members, and many offer CMPP credits. 

A sampling of roundtable topics for January 23 include:

  • Where Are the Data? A Shared View on Data Sharing.
  • Tackling Author Challenges in the Changing World of Publications.
  • Transforming the Traditional Scientific Platform to Be Fit for the Future.
  • AI: The Next Breakthrough for Medical Communications? 

Don’t see a roundtable that speaks to you? Use this time to join a guided poster tour or a workshop titled “What’s a ‘Good’ Journal Anyway?,” both hosted in the Mouton Cadet Suite.

Starting at 3:30 p.m., reconvene for two sessions in the Cremant Room, followed by a poster and networking session on the Champagne Terrace.
