Conference location and dates

After a two-year hiatus owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, PAGE will resume face-to-face at the same venue as the cancelled 2020 meeting - Ljubljana, Slovenia - from 28 June to 1 July 2022!

The PAGE meeting takes place in an informal atmosphere with vivid scientific discussion. PAGE 2022 will be held at the Cankarjev Dom. The meeting starts with a welcome reception on Tuesday evening 28 June. The scientific programme will start on Wednesday morning 29 June and will end at noon on Friday 1 July. Participants are encouraged to attend all conference days and present their work in the form of an oral presentation or poster.

Preliminary programme items:

  • Special session on modelling of therapeutic antibodies
    This session will be devoted to the latest developments in the area of modelling therapeutic antibodies and other large molecules. Keynote speaker Dr Iain Gardner (Certara, Sheffield, UK) will provide an overview of the challenges and opportunities for the use of PBPK models for large molecules in the drug development process with a lecture titled "Pre-clinical and clinical applications of PBPK models for monoclonal antibodies and other large molecule modalities." Furthermore, this year we have opened up a special oral abstract category with the title 'Immunogenicity and Anti-Drug Antibodies', where we welcome submission of all abstracts relating to modelling of immunogenicity of therapeutic antibodies. Further presenters for this session will be selected by the organising committee from the submitted abstracts.
  • The Lewis Sheiner Student Session
    The annual Lewis Sheiner Student Session was inaugurated, both to honour the memory of Lewis Sheiner and to highlight his lifetime passion for student education. Students who wish to be considered for this session should submit an extended abstract.
    • The abstract must be structured with the following subheadings: Objectives / Methods / Results / Conclusion / References.
    • There must be at least 6,000 but not more than 7,000 characters (including spaces) in the abstract text (excluding Title / Authors/ Affiliation and References).
    • The submitted work must have been performed either as part of an MSc or PhD programme and/or will ultimately form part of a PhD thesis.
    • Each year a rotating committee of three members, representative of the PAGE community, will judge who should receive the honour of presenting in the Lewis Sheiner Student Session.
    • If selected, the student will automatically receive a 300€ travel grant. A permanent list of students, with links to their presentation, will be maintained on the web site.
  • The Stuart Beal Methodology Session
    As a tribute to Stuart Beal, there is a Stuart Beal Methodology Session. The organising committee will choose presenters from the submitted abstracts.

The abstract submission deadline is the same for all submitted abstracts (Lewis Sheiner Student Session, orals, and posters) and there will be no option for late submissions. In practice, this means that any new abstract entered into the system after 8:00 (AM) CET on Saturday morning 9 April 2022, corresponding approximately to the time at which the last global time zones reach midnight on the submission deadline of 8 April 2022, will be manually removed by the system administrator. The PAGE organising committee cares about the quality of all abstracts, and sufficient time is required for judging them.

Satellite meetings and virtual events

A number of satellite meetings, courses and virtual events will take place concurrently with PAGE this year. See here for details.
