Brief description of the Symposium:
Systematic reviews and evidence-based health care face enormous challenges now and in the coming decades. Cochrane will need to address these challenges. One component of the Cochrane five-year strategic planning exercise is around technology. We want to look at how we can better leverage technology and knowledge, both to help us prepare systematic reviews more efficiently, but also to deliver evidence more effectively to our end users.

Join us in Québec for an exciting day of presentations, discussions and demonstrations and find out first hand what’s new in technology and what the future holds for systematic reviews!

RSVP here:, and please help us spread the word.

Chris Mavergames,
on behalf of the Preliminary Planning Committee for the #CochraneTech Symposium: Lorne Becker, Chris Champion, Gordon Dooley, Julian Elliott, Toby Lasserson, Chris Mavergames, Nancy Owens, Juliane Ried and Jessica Thomas
