    There has been a myriad of reasons over the past few years to safely assume the popularity and perceived worth of face-to-face medical meetings was well and truly on the decline – from advances in technology, to funding challenges.

    Separate, yet complementary studies looking at global HCP preferences reveals that the medical meeting is in fact their preferred channel for scientific communications.

    Yet a 2018 study by Ashfield looking at global HCP preferences reveals that the medical meeting is in fact their preferred channel for scientific communications.

    Furthermore, HCPs exhibit consumer behaviours in selecting and attending events – which means that while these conferences offer potential engagement riches, they have to offer a specific mix of focus, value and ROI to be successful. To analyse this situation, discuss the learnings from the research and offer guidance on what a modern medical meeting needs to be we present an exclusive debate.

    Bringing together experts from Ashfield Meetings & Events and the European Society of Cardiology our panel will discuss:

    1. Findings from the 2018 Ashfield Science of HCP Meetings research and whitepaper
    2. How HCPs want to engage with pharma and scientific communications
    3. What works? How to create the events that HCPs want to attend
    4. The future of meetings - balancing face to face and digital
    5. How HCPs determine whether a meeting is likely to be worth the investment
    6. Strategies and tactics for planners and meeting stakeholders to implement to continue to add value for HCPs attending medical meetings

  • The importance of innovation throughout the workplace
    The importance of innovation throughout the workplace Jade Pearson, Regional Lead, Global Training Services, Kepner-Tregoe Jun 26 2018 8:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Great innovators solve important problems that make peoples’ lives better often by designing simple adjustments that look obvious. Innovators are curious, they look for fresh approaches and tend to see a bigger picture than the world that is presented to them. They are always on the lookout for methods, systems or new designs to cut through complexity, reduce time or combine many tasks into one. Ultimately their work ends up being “of service” to their team and their organisation.

    If you consider that tomorrow’s problems will not be solved using yesterday’s thinking and you are looking to provide value to your organisation’s strategic planning and problem-solving capabilities then becoming an innovator should be on your short list!

    Join Jade Pearson, Regional Lead, Global Training Services with Kepner-Tregoe, in the second of our “Future of Thinking” webinar series where she’ll discuss how innovation can be a friendly component of your work.

    What you will learn:

    How innovative thinking can improve dealings with customers

  • Modelling Piezoelectric Devices
    Modelling Piezoelectric Devices Paul Wilson, Knowledge Transfer Associate, Queen's University Belfast and Richard Chippendale, Technical Manager, COMSOL Jun 27 2018 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In this webinar, learn about a multiphysics approach for modelling piezoelectric devices with couplings between electrostatics, acoustics and structural mechanics. Incorporating such models within the design process enables a better understanding of the interactions between structural materials, piezoelectric ceramics and fluid damping, which can reduce development time and prototyping costs.

    Piezoelectric transducers can be used, for example, in ultrasonic cleaning, sonochemistry and cell disruption or homogenisation. For such applications it is important to accurately design the ultrasonic horns (or sonotrodes) to increase the amplitude of piezoelectric vibrations and transfer energy to liquids through the production and disintegration of microscopic bubbles.

    In this presentation, Paul Wilson from Queen's University Belfast will discuss how to design such a horn to maximise power transfer to a liquid. An existing transducer will be modelled and the tuning of material parameters to match experimental results will be discussed. Parametric sweeps are then used to investigate the design space of the horn and predict the electrical and mechanical properties of the model. These results can then inform experimental procedure, where the simulated response shows strong agreement with laboratory measurements.

    The webinar will include a live demonstration in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and conclude with a Q&A session.

  • Winning the Battle for OTT Audiences
    Winning the Battle for OTT Audiences IBC365 | Limelight Networks | Rede Telecine Jun 28 2018 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Great content alone is not enough to sustain a successful on-demand internet-delivered OTT service.

    Whether it's broadcaster catch-up, special-interest content or producers like HBO and Disney going direct, the pressure is on for platforms trying to compete with the big beasts Netflix and Amazon. With the announcement of Salto as a joint venture of broadcasters in France, and UK channels investing in updating Freeview Play, OTT is centre-stage once again.

    Audiences have huge expectations of user experience, video image and quality-of-service - regardless of the network or device they are using. Delivering and managing a consistently-high quality of experience is crucial for media companies wanting to deliver a popular, engaging and profitable OTT service - whatever the content and business model.

    Leading OTT operators and their technology providers discuss how they have designed-in quality and user experience all the way through to consumers' devices, showing how this directly drives audience growth.

    They will reveal the risk factors that can destroy audience engagement, including poor streaming performance and data privacy and security fears.

    As OTT becomes inseparable from live broadcast, solutions for streaming time-sensitive, high-value live events and sports are assessed.
