The Convergence Planning Committee welcomes proposals for the 2018 Convergence conference, 1-4 October 2018 at the Vancouver Convention Center in Vancouver, BC.

RAPS Regulatory Convergence is the largest professional meeting for those engaged with the regulation of healthcare products worldwide, and the conference’s goal is to educate attendees about the complex and evolving healthcare product regulatory environment and give them an opportunity to gather as a community, connect with one another, and share knowledge. The event attracts participants representing global regulatory bodies, industry, research, academic and clinical organizations involved with the full range of healthcare products across all facets of the product lifecycle.

Proposals are peer-reviewed for quality, educational content, logical presentation, and impact on the global healthcare regulatory community. Accepted proposals are scheduled as oral presentations in a variety of formats based on anticipated interest by attendees. By submitting a proposal, you agree that if your proposal is accepted, it will be presented as described.
