The Resource Facility for Population Kinetics (RFPK) is pleased to offer a
series of Introductory Workshops on Population Analysis using the System for
Population Kinetics:

Padova, Italy: July 2-3, 2007

Pittsburgh, PA, USA: September 24-25, 2007 

Perth, Australia: December 10-11, 2007

The two-day workshop will feature: Model development, testing and
identifiability; hands-on introduction to differential equation and
numerical modeling; individual and population models, population
distributions; approaches to population analysis based on likelihood
approximations. The understanding, practical usage and implementation of
modeling concepts described in the workshop will be reinforced through
hands-on use of published data sets.

The System for Population Kinetics (SPK) will be used for workshop training.
The SPK is a web-based service for modeling and simulation being developed
by the RFPK at the University of Washington. SPK facilitates nonlinear least
squares and mixed effects modeling via a web browser and Java interface and
uses a NONMEM-compatible language for model specification. The service is
freely available and individual accounts will be provided to workshop
participants (pursuant to the SPK Terms of Service). The SPK is accessible
through the RFPK website located at http://www.rfpk.washington.edu.

Cost of attendance for each workshop is USD 400 (USD 200 for students and
postdoctoral fellows), and includes workbooks, coffee breaks and lunch both
days. Space is limited for each workshop. Software and computer access
during the workshops will be provided. Registration and more information can
be found at: http://workshops.rfpk.washington.edu.
