Quality enhancement tools
Content sharing within an organization and between organizations: Using cloud-based systems in the life sciences arena?

Regulatory Requirements:
Challenges of becoming a regulated business
Adhering to language requirements for software and manuals: How do we keep on top of the latest regulations? How do emerging markets play a vital role in your strategy for growth in localization and distribution?

Web-based Platforms in the Medical Device Arena:
Innovative approaches to localization for web and mobile platforms
How have electronic health records requirements changed the way life sciences companies do business?
Patient facing versus clinician facing platforms: How do we treat the graphic user interfaces differently? Integrating SMS and voice messaging platforms within your localized web platform

Cross-cultural Interaction:
A cross-cultural focus on distributed (or virtual) teams
How can we use adaptive strategies for work within “high” and “low” context cultures?
