Find out more about the programme so far and how to submit meeting requests

The Colloquium is a multi-disciplinary event exchanging ideas about how we best generate, summarize and communicate evidence to inform and change practice and policy worldwide. On this page, find out more about what we have planned so far.  


Plenary sessions

We are delighted to be joined by a renowned list of regional and international speakers. They will be bringing a variety of perspectives - researcher, patient, carer and clinician - to bear on key issues and challenges in evidence-based practice.

Meeting requests

The purpose of Colloquium meetings is to give sufficient time for the Cochrane community and others to hold business meetings. Priority will be given to internal Cochrane priority projects, executives and groups. There are several dedicated meeting slots in the programme. 

As meeting requests are submitted and processed, they will be published on the meeting list. When planning your meeting, please refer to the programme overview and the meeting list to avoid conflicts.
