The Workshop on Innovative Technologies for Remote Collection of Data for the National Children's Study was held on May 12-14, 2003 at the Hyatt Harborside Hotel Boston, MA. The National Children's Study is a large longitudinal study of environmental influences on children's health and development. The study will examine about 100,000 children across the US and follow them during prenatal development, through birth, childhood, and into adulthood. The workshop was structured around three breakout groups: medical and biological measurements, data collection, and environmental and exposure-related measurements. The Workshop was produced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The workshop sessions were structured around three breakout groups: data collection; environmental; and medical and biological measurements. Through a series of telephone conference calls, Westat and EPA discussed the general plan of the workshop and the mix of relevant experience that was necessary to balance each breakout session. Expert participants were selected for the workshop based on their appropriate expertise in the three areas of data collection, medical and biological measures and environmental measurements. Experts were contacted to confirm their interest and availability to participate in the workshop. Their expertise was verified reviewing publications authored by the expert, their professional record, and their resumes. Three chairpersons were chosen to lead each of the three break-out groups.
