PAGE meetings take place in an informal atmosphere with vivid scientific discussion. Because of the increase in submitted abstracts seen over the years, the organising committee has decided to extend the PAGE meeting with an extra afternoon. The meeting will therefore start on Wednesday June 14 at noon and will end on Friday afternoon (around 5PM).

Participants are encouraged to attend all conference days and present their work in the form of an oral presentation or poster. Participants are explicitly encouraged to contribute with work on clinical applications. Given the great success of both the Lewis Sheiner Student Session and the Model Building Session last year, these will be an important part of the PAGE2006 program as well:

a) The Lewis Sheiner Student Session
The annual Lewis Sheiner Student Session has been 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 (equivalent to 2 pages of typed A4) of their intended presentation for the PAGE meeting. 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 elected, the student will automatically receive a PAGE-sponsored 300 euro travel grant. A permanent list of students, with links to their presentation, will be maintained on the web site.

b) The Model Building Session
This session is aimed at giving insight into and providing a basis for discussion around model building. Therefore, presentations should be analyses of real data sets with a focus on one or more model building issues. The intention is to generate a discussion forum to deal with real life issues that may not have a solution yet. Participants are encouraged to consider sharing any relevant issues within the PAGE community. If you want to participate in this session, submit an abstract with a description of your model building problem using the normal procedure and choose "Oral presentation: Model Building Session" as your abstract type.

c) The Stuart Beal Methodology Session
As a tribute to Stuart Beal, the organising committee would like to institute a permanent Stuart Beal Methodology Session (open for submitted abstracts), and both Alison Boeckman and Tom Ludden have been invited to commemorate Stuart's immense contribution to the field.

d) The Tutorial
This year's tutorial will be presented by Prof. Geert Verbeke (Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium) on categorical data analysis.

e) The Modelling Absorption Session
A special session will be organised on modelling absorption with contributions from academia and software developers in the field:
Mats Karlsson - Uppsala University
Amin Rostami-Hodjegan - University of Sheffield and SimCyp
Walter Woltosz - GastroPlus / Simulations Plus
Stefan Willmann - PKSim

The many canals that make their way through romantic Bruges and the pedestrian zones along historic streets and squares offer you complete freedom. Upon visiting Bruges, you will immediately notice that this city has always carefully cherished its architectural and artistic treasures from the past. What makes Bruges so typical though, is the way it deals with this past today. The people of Bruges would like to invite you to join them and to enjoy it as much as they do. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy and learn more about this city (http://www.brugge.be).
