On behalf of the Planning Committee, I cordially invite you to attend the Twelfth American Conference on Pharmacometrics (ACoP12), which will now be hosted virtually from November 8-12, 2021. Although we are seeing progress in the availability of vaccines worldwide, given the ongoing uncertainties in travel and evolving restrictions around meeting sizes and mask requirements, the ISoP Board of Directors decided that holding an in-person meeting is not optimal this year. This change in conference format also allows us to better support our global Pharmacometrics community with a diverse speaker roster and more opportunities for international participation.
The theme of ACoP12 is “Charting the Course for Our Future”. As we chart a course for the future of Pharmacometrics, we also honor the many scientific pioneers who made this discipline what it is today. Our theme aligns with ISoP’s vision to promote and advance the discipline of Pharmacometrics and broaden its impact. It also embraces the pillars of our 5-year strategic plan: Scientific Expertise and Innovation, Influence, Education, Tools and Resources, and Internationalization.
ACoP12 will host a pre-conference event titled “Integrating Standardization and Innovation in Your Organization: Find a Workflow that Works for You!”. The main conference will leverage and build on our experience with virtual ACoP11 and feature numerous exciting scientific sessions, poster presentations, awards, SIG events, dedicated activities for students and trainees, as well as ample networking opportunities.
Please stop back for periodic updates from the Planning Committee. I look forward to seeing you virtually at ACoP12!
Heather Vezina, PharmD, PhD
