I am associated with IASCT-CONSPIC for more than five years now. In the first year associated myself with the conference as a Viewer and in later year as presenter. I cheer the opportunities to learn more about what types of work or expertise other statistical programmers in pharmaceutical industry poses and what their jobs demand. The knowledge, connections and perspective I found at the CONSPIC continue enrich my thought and work. Now I know what to expect from future conferences and have begun to create a professional network. Thanks to the organizing committee for providing us the platform.
It was my dream come true presenting in ConSPIC where we get to know industry standards, novel approaches in clinical research trials and many more updates. It strengthens confidence, presenting topics in front of the talented crowd. I feel this is the best platform where we can exchange our thoughts and learning in SAS/Statistics/Clinical Research.

Every day morning I take out my bike, I sit on the same place in front of the same laptop doing what I do best – Clinical SAS Programming. However this routine continued for over past 3 years. Last year when I was a part of ConSPIC as a presenter I had a revelation, that my life is more exciting than this cubical box where I sit. Where I can learn and teach at the same time, where irrespective of seniority we are equals. I believe that every Clinical SAS programmer should at least attend ConSPIC once so that they can see a new world with brilliant minds and never ending enthusiasm for this profession. Today I truly feel proud to be a clinical sas programmer and to be a part of ConSPIC, which just doesn’t change idea but also change believes.

I had a wonderful chance of meeting people who have done brilliant work and were willing to share, I have learnt a lot of new things from what people have shared, and also made some friends. When I had presented a poster in 2013, many people gave wonderful ideas and feedback that has helped build better tools. I feel there are many things I would not had done if not for all the ConSPIC conferences I have attended, it has helped me develop professionally.

I attended two ConSPIC events. It gave me a great network with statistical programmers in the industry. As ConSPIC is meant for the associates not for the leaders we get to know lot of case studies in conference.Having a DJ and site seeing is few of the uniqueness of ConSPIC. This is the only one conference I expect every year and preparing my paper throughout the year.

ConSPIC gave me the right platform and opportunity where I can showcase my thoughts and ideas and gain feedback from some of the best experts available in the field of Clinical Programming. The conference was truly one of the best experience based on “FUN & LEARN” concept. The best part of the conference was the discussion on wide range of concepts and above all the true learnings from the best mentor Ashwini Mathur. I’m eagerly waiting for the CONSPIC 2014 where I can contribute to a larger audience.
