2024 Korea Interchange Call for Abstracts - CDISC Abstracts

Abstracts Due: Friday, 5 July 2024

We welcome abstracts for the 2024 Korea Interchange on any of the CDISC topics listed below.


Novelty in Clinical Trials and CDISC Standards

  • Modernization of clinical trial impact on CDISC standards: decentralized trials incl. digital endpoints, master protocols, patient and rare disease registries.
  • Applications of AI to extract value from Clinical Trials and Real World Data
  • Regulatory and CDISC positioning on usage of AI

Real World Data / Evidence

  • Experiences of RWD/RWE in regulatory decision-making for drugs and biologics
  • Use of CDISC and other industry standards (OMOP data model, HL7 FHIR, etc.) incl. conversions between standards
  • Regulatory guidance, progress and barriers

CDISC in Academic Research

  • Healthcare Data Systems
  • Use case of using CDISC standards in Academic Research
  • Non-standard implementation of CDISC standards
  • Use of CDISC standards to facilitate data sharing and data reuse
  • eSource/Direct Data Capture (DDC) for e.g. using electronic health records and the FHIR standard
  • Meta Analysis/Data Integration
  • Computer Science and Data Science perspectives on CDISC standards
  • Opportunities across the life sciences data sharing (FAIRified) ecosystem post anonymization of critical GDPR data

Bringing Data Back to Life - Re-use and Harmonisation of Clinical Trials

  • Pool historic R&D data and harmonize it using CDISC-SDTM standards to leverage big data for more effective data-driven decision-making across the value chain.
  • Utilize harmonized terminologies and vocabularies to facilitate data sharing of completed clinical trials and identify studies/subjects of interest.
  • Combine RCT data with Omics, RWD, and Imaging to unlock the full potential of clinical data and improve R&D returns.

Open Source usage, including CORE, OAK, ARS, COSMoS

  • Experience in the use of CORE, Rules Authoring Tool and generation of Rules
  • Experience of various validation tools for SEND/SDTM/ADaM/Define
  • Experience in use of Open Source tools
  • Implementation examples of ARS

Digital Data Flow

  • Implementation examples of DDF
  • Extensions to DDF
  • DDF impact on drug development
  • DDF and integration with upstream and downstream process: challenges and advantages

Global Regulatory Submissions

  • Submission to FDA/PMDA/NMPA learnings
  • Submitting around the Globe, submission experience with other Health Authorities e.g. EMA Clinical Trials Raw Data Pilot
  • Supporting FDA BIMO Deliverables
  • Achieving quality and efficiency in data submission e.g.
    • Proper documentation
    • How to correctly provide metadata in define-xml
    • Automation
    • Process flow
  • Impact of new FDA guidance e.g.
    • Standard Safety Tables and Figures Guide
    • Experience and adherence to FDA division guidance e.g., CBER Vaccine, CDER NASH, etc.
    • Inclusion and diversity requirements and challenges from standards point of view e. g. Gender How to correctly provide metadata in define-xml
    • RWE impacts decision making by regulators – opportunities and challenges from data standards/harmonization/review
  • Experience integrating data from multiple studies in support of Integrated Summary of Safety (ISS) and Integrated Summary of Effectiveness (ISE)
  • Imagine Data Submission in 2041: how technology, standards and industry initiative can fasten data submission

Standards governance and MDRs

  • Managing CDISC versions and handling (non) adherence in terms of submission to one or multiple regulatory agencies
  • Metadata-driven governance and automation experiences
  • How to ensure end to end connections between different CDISC standards: CDASH-SDTM-ADaM
  • Pharma/Bio tech experiences with graph databases/linked data implementations

CDISC Foundational Standards

  • CDASHIG 2.3/3.0
    • Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity (SOGI)
  • SDTM/IG 2.2/4.0
    • Preparing for SUPP to NSV Transition
  • ADAM 3.0/1.4

  • Define-XML v2.1
    • upversioning from 2.0 experience
  • CT domain changes



You are welcome to submit an abstract on any CDISC model experience, its implementation and associated planning. Related use cases are encouraged. We want to hear your success stories even if they do not fit into the topic areas mentioned.  CDISC is an open and multidisciplinary standard which interfaces with many areas and we are eager to hear about your experiences working with standards.
