      • Workshop on Python Language

        Python as a high-level programming language is a fast growing programming tool. The main strength of Python is its ability to connect with other software as well as hardware modules. It is especially powerful in its implementation of machine learning modules and handling big data. Its usefulness and popularity can be assessed through the available 119948 additional packages which almost ensure that a beginner will rarely need to write detailed codes. Python being open source is free and taking a decision to learn or switch to it is only a matter of adaptation and has no cost implications. Python specialized packages such as clinical_trials, scikit-survival 0.3, and lifelines are handy for using survival analysis methods. Bayesian analysis in Python is carried out using packages such as BayesPy and pymc3. This interactive workshop will be conducted by Dr. Vikram Pudi from IIIT, Hyderabad and Mr. V Ashwin from GSK, Bangalore. The workshop will begin with an introduction to basics of Python and move to concepts such as, for loops, functions, if-while, lists, trees, arrays and dictionaries etc. The workshop will be interspersed with examples and exercises which are generic in nature and some which are from the clinical domain. At the end of the workshop, end users should have a good understanding of the potential of Python and how it can be used in some of the day to activities such as validation, simple number crunching besides others.

      • Quality Control and Quality Assurance in clinical data analysis

        In drug development, high quality, consistent and reliable performances are the key expectations of the bio-pharmaceutical companies. Quality is more than making a good product. It is important for the sponsors and CROs to monitor their quality control and quality assurance systems, as defined by their long-term standard operating procedures to provide high quality products and services to their stake holders. The workshop demonstrates the importance of Quality Control and Quality Assurance in clinical data analysis and participants will learn about efficient and prescribed methods, their applications and best practices used in Quality Control and Quality Assurance in clinical data analysis. "Quality is not an act, it is a habit" – Aristotle
