  Ms. Chavan opened the next session, reminding the audience to focus verbal questions to more generic topics and submit specific questions in writing, or to use the breaks for discussions with the speaker.
  Dr. Huber helping this table with the workshop exercises 
  Many times delegates had follow-up questions. But at the end everything was clear.  
  A frequent question was on how detailed User Requirement Specifications should be. 
  In the lunch break the Global CompliancePanel management introduced Dr. Huber to the Sponsors and Media Partners.
  During the interactive discussion sessions the delegates had many questions, mainly to validation and dat integrity issues..
  Also long after official program was finished delegates still had  many detailed and very specific  questions.
Dr Huber answered them all.

  The moderator and speaker are ready for the next session, the audience is eagerly waiting for what's  next
  Dr. Huber was always close to the audience, facilitating the interactive format.  
  One of the popular questions was on how to validate Virtual Software and Cloud Computers
  During the break seminar attendees were asked to give feedback on video.
Practical examples, case studies and interactive exercises have been dispersed into and between the presentations. 
All attendees worked to complete the workshop tasks. Here the task was to define, justify and document Part 11 compliance, mainly to ensure data integrity..
Does the system has to comply with Part 11 and if yes, with which function?
There are still some doubts about the Part 11 system requirements
Team delegates presented the workshop results, and received the Labcompliance Computer System Validation Package
  Dr. Huber handing over  Prizes sponsored by Global CompliancePanel
  Dr. Huber with the 3 winners of the Prize sponsored by Global CompliancePanel
  Delegates taking photos of the speaker.
