8h30 - 9h00 Inscription et déjeuner continental 9h00 - 9h05 Mot de bienvenue Eric Lacombe, MONSUG 9h05 - 9h20 SAS Updates Alice Yuan, SAS Canada   (Présenté en anglais) A quick look at new developments in the world of SAS. 9h20 - 10h10 Trucs et astuces avec SAS Enterprise Guide et SAS Studio Jean Hardy, Services conseils Hardy   Les interfaces-utilisateurs SAS Entreprise Guide et SAS Studio comportent beaucoup de fonctionnalités destinées à faciliter la programmation en langage SAS.  Cette présentation en illustre plusieurs qui passent parfois sous le radar des utilisateurs, même expérimentés. On y traitera notamment du débogueur de l'étape DATA, de la comparaison de programmes, de l'affichage simultané de plusieurs visionneuses, de la possibilité de figer les volets, de la visionneuse de variables macro, de multiples points de vue d'un même programme, de l'édition de blocs de texte et de plusieurs autres astuces.  La présentation ne cherche pas à comparer les deux interfaces mais à  mieux outiller les utilisateurs de l'une ou l'autre.  Pour tirer profit de cette présentation, les participants doivent être familiers avec SAS Enterprise Guide (versions 7.1 à 8.3) ou encore avec SAS Studio (version 3.8 à 2023.10). 10h10 - 10h35 Pause réseautage 10h35 - 11h00 Un outil pour évaluer la sécurité de votre écosystème SAS Yves Jalbert, Banque Nationale du Canada   Votre système SAS et vos données sont-elles sécurisées?  Avant ou après un désastre, voici un outil pour évaluer et faire le suivi de la sécurité de votre serveur SAS.     11h00 - 11h30 Préparez sa migration à SAS Viya® ou quelles questions se poser pour bien la réussir Christian Lamarche, Banque Nationale du Canada   La migration de SAS® 9 vers SAS® Viya® n'est pas juste un changement de version; c'est un changement de paradigme puisque c'est souvent la première incursion vers l'infonuagique et vient avec une multitude de questions.  Cette présentation tente de démystifier qu'elles sont les questions à se poser pour bien débuter votre projet de migration. 11h30 - 11h45 Tirage et mot de la fin   Register Now

SAS Viya Workbench is coming! Built for developers and modelers, Viya Workbench is a self-service, on-demand compute environment for analytical development, including building AI and machine learning models. We're excited about the release next month and are dedicating the June edition of the SAS Bowl to it.   Game Details The SAS Support Community trivia event, SAS Bowl XLI, SAS Viya Workbench is scheduled for Wednesday, June 12, at 10 a.m. ET. Register for the event and receive an invite to a Microsoft Teams meeting and a calendar event. On game day, join the Teams meeting and access the game here.   More on SAS Viya Workbench Build powerful models quickly and efficiently through the code-based environment. An intuitive user interface and integrations with your favorite IDEs get up up and running in minutes. Streamline your work by pulling in existing Python or SAS projects - with minimal to no code modifications needed. Boost your productivity and performance by customizing your CPU/GPU compute power to fit the needs of your project. Develop on-demand with self-provisioning and self-terminating features requiring minimal IT support. Workbench allows you to focus on creating, innovating, iterating, and testing your work through a code-based interface using Juypter Notebooks and Visual Studio Code.   Here are some resources where you can learn more and get familiar with SAS Viya Workbench.

Compared to other therapeutic studies, oncology studies are generally complex and difficult for programmers and statisticians. There is more to understand and to know such as different clinical study types, specific data collection points and analysis. In this seminar, programmers and statisticians will learn oncology specific knowledge in clinical studies and will understand a holistic view of oncology studies from data collection, CDISC datasets, and analysis. Programmers and statisticians will also find out what makes oncology studies unique and learn how to lead oncology study projects effectively. The seminar will cover four different sub types and their response criteria guidelines. The first sub type, Solid Tumor study, usually follows RECIST (Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumor). The second sub type, Immunotherapy study, usually follows irRC (immune-related Response Criteria). The third sub type, Lymphoma study, usually follows Cheson. Lastly, Leukemia studies follow study specific guidelines (e.g., IWCLL for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia). The seminar will show how to use response criteria guidelines for data collections and response evaluation.   Programmers and statisticians will learn how to create SDTM tumor specific datasets (RS, TU, TR), what SDTM domains are used for certain data collection, and what Controlled Terminology (e.g., CR, PR, SD, PD, NE) will be applied. They will also learn how to create Time-to-Event ADaM datasets from SDTM domains and how to use ADaM datasets to derive efficacy analysis (e.g., OS, PFS, TTP, ORR, DFS) and Kaplan Meier Curves using SAS Procedures such as PROC LIFETEST and PHREG.   Finally, programmers and statistician will understand how to build end-to-end standards driven oncology studies from protocol, study sub-types, response criteria, data collection, SDTM, ADaM to analysis.   Presented by Kevin Lee.    REGISTER today.
