Lightbulb CAMDA'11 - ISMB Satellite Meeting, Vienna, 15-16 July 2011 -- www.camda.info

Dear colleagues!

We enthusiastically invite you to attend this year's conference on

Critical Assessment of Massive Data Analysis (CAMDA)

which will be held 15-16 July 2011 in Vienna, Austria (www.camda.info).

CAMDA was founded in 2000 to provide a forum for the critical assessment of different techniques used in large-scale data analysis in the life-sciences, such as for high-dimensional gene expression profiling. It aims to establish state-of-the-art analysis methods, as well as identify progress and highlight promising directions for future efforts. To this end, CAMDA adopted the approach of a scientific community-wide contest, with everybody analysing the same data sets. Researchers worldwide are invited to take the CAMDA challenge, which has become a prominent fixture (cf. Nature Methods 5, 569). Accepted contributions are presented through talks and posters, and the results and methods of the different analyses are discussed and compared at the conference.

As a special focus this year, we will consider the integrated analysis of a particularly rich structured data set that includes gene and miRNA expression, DNA SNPs, copy number variation, and methylation for about 500 matched samples. With the fast ongoing development of novel genome-wide experimental techniques (such as next generation sequencing), an assessment of how we can gain better insight from an integration of heterogeneous large-scale data is particularly topical.

Keynotes by leading researchers in the field provide further focus points for discussion, with both experimental and theoretical issues covered. This year we are proud to confirm Terry Speed, John Storey, and Stefano Volinia as keynote speakers. (See online Agenda for more details)

CAMDA was founded by Simon Lin and Kimberly Johnson at Duke University (Nature 411, 885. Nature 424, 610). In 2006 CAMDA became a roving conference, with recent venues including Valencia and Chicago. This year, we will host CAMDA in Austria. For the first time, the conference is run as an official Satellite meeting of ISMB/ECCB, and in close collaboration with FGED, providing further opportunities for interaction with colleagues at the conference.

We strongly encourage you to take part in this year's CAMDA. Your contribution helps make CAMDA an exciting meeting!

Please distribute this announcement to other colleagues who might be interested.

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna!

Programme announcement & Call for Posters

Dear colleague!

We enthusiastically invite you to attend this year's conference on

Critical Assessment of Massive Data Analysis (CAMDA) .

which will be held 15-16 July 2011 in Vienna, Austria (www.camda.info).


The early registration discount for CAMDA/ISMB ends 3 June – book now if you want to join us! This year's exciting line up of keynote speakers includes Terry Speed (WEHI), John Storey (Princeton) and Stefano Volinia (Ferrera). See the full two-day programme for details on papers and events...

CAMDA still accepts poster submissions (abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings).

We can still accept suitable posters for presentations of recent topical work in the dedicated poster session. Poster abstracts are published in the conference proceedings.

Please also distribute this announcement to other colleagues who might be interested.

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna!

Exclamation CAMDA presentations and videos released

We are glad to announce that presentations and videos recorded during CAMDA 2011 are now publicly available !!!

http://bioinf.boku.ac.at/camda11.php


As the CAMDA conference itself was not focused mainly on NGS, however, a few interesting talks from RNA-Seq field were presented.

Like:

‘Dealing with the GC-content bias in second-generation DNA sequence data’,
Terry Speed, Bioinformatics division, WEHI, Melbourne, Australia

or

‘Differential expression in RNA-seq: a matter of depth’,
Ana Conesa, Centro de Investigacion Principe Felipe, Valencia, Spain
