It is our silver anniversary and we are excited to host our 25th annual ISPE-CaSA Technology Conference.  The planning process is underway and we are seeking speakers to help solidify our education track.  This year will feature the latest technology and forward thinking concepts that relate to our local industry and beyond.  

The deadline for abstracts to be considered for ISPE-CaSA Technology Conference 2018 is Friday November 17th, 2017.  Whether it involves an innovative use of technology, or a novel approach to life sciences, consider submitting an abstract for a podium presentation across one or more pf these educational tracks. All vendor companies are strongly encouraged to partner with an end user to present a case study or panel discussion during their presentations.  We will have a Young Professional 101 Series track, so please take this into consideration as you are submitting your topics. You can submit more than one abstract per company and it can be the same topic for entry level (101 series) and intermediate – advanced for the education track.

The format features:


  • Each session is 45 minutes long.  
  • There are multiple tracks (ie., subgroups below) in each 45-minute period.  
  • There is a 150 word limit on the Overview, and a 500 word limit on the Content.  
  • Submissions must include speaker bios.
Please submit abstracts by following the instructions above. 


Deadline for submissions:   Friday, November 17, 2017.
