Life History Research Society Biennial Meeting
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania May 7th-10th 2014
The 2014 Life History Research Society Meeting will be held in Pittsburgh, PA, May 7th - May 10th
The Life History Research Society is an informal, multi-disciplinary group of scholars who are pursuing prospective longitudinal research examining various aspects of human development. The unifying theme of this society is the longitudinal research approach: the study of human development across time. Studies range from examining a population over the course of a year to multi-generational studies examining relationships between grandparents, parents, and their children. The focus of the longitudinal programs of research varies widely, from delinquency and criminality to various psychosocial (i.e. happiness, financial autonomy), life-transition (i.e. puberty, retirement, etc), and health-related outcomes (i.e. internalizing behaviors).
The society has been having meetings for over three decades at approximately 18 month intervals at different international venues. The objectives of these conferences are to (1) share information that will advance the study of human development and influence the next generation of longitudinal studies, (2) promote multidisciplinary research and interdisciplinary dialogue/collaboration around a common theme, and (3) foster communication between senior and junior researchers, and researchers and students.
Life History Research Society meetings attract researchers from around the world. The nature of the meeting and of the scholars who have been part of the Life History Research Society make it a rare opportunity for longitudinal researchers from different disciplines and different countries to come together to discuss common problems and successes. Sessions focus on new research relating to antisocial behavior, mental and physical health, and psychosocial development, as well as methodologies, statistical analyses and problems specific to longitudinal research.

Automation & Serialization in the Secure Pharmaceutical & Food Supply Chain
International Society of Automation Food & Pharmaceutical Division March 5-7, 2014 Symposium in Research Triangle Park North Carolina
The symposium will bring together experts, vendors, and end users in a 2 day symposium to cover the important issues of automation and serialization and their impact on the secure pharmaceutical and food supply chain. Recent legislation and incidents of contamination and tampering have raised the importance of automation to reduce errors and implement serialization to improve tracking and tracing throughout the supply chain. The symposium will put out a call for papers that cover the following topics; Serialization, Track & Trace, Validation, Cyber Security, RFID, PAT, QBD, Virtualization, Batch Controls, MES, and automation project management.
Serialization is an increasing important requirement in pharmaceutical and food production, in order to protect food and medicine supplies. Implementing serialization involves automation, supply chains, and information security. Automation is involved because printers and verification systems must be added to existing production and packaging lines. There is a supply chain aspect because serialization information is maintained in the corporate ERP systems but must also be available on a 24×7 basis to production and to supply chain partners. Information security is important because serialization information must be protected, otherwise counterfeit medicines or unsafe food products will be undetected in the supply chain, with potentially great harm to end users. Serialization has many aspects, all the way from the shop floor to corporate business systems and outside a company to multiple supply chain partners. The 2014 FPID symposium will bring together experts, vendors, and end users in a 2 day symposium to cover these important issues.
