BioData World Congress is the world's leading event for individuals working with Big Data in precision medicine.
Precision medicine is joining the big-data club. With the advent of high-throughput genomics, life scientists are starting to grapple with massive data sets, encountering challenges with handling, processing and moving information that were once the domain of astronomers and high-energy physicists.
With the advent of revolutionary high-powered computing architecture and the exponential decrease in the cost of sequencing, this new era has now truly begun with the likes of the 100k Genome Project taking center stage in the efforts to drive genomics into the clinic.
However, with the vast quantity of personal data there come challenges and questions into how to implement infrastructure and deliver this data in a usable format. Welcoming in this new generation of healthcare is a multifaceted effort requiring academics, commercial businesses, clinicians and pharmaceutical companies and of course the patients to congress and discuss how to develop this new exciting field of healthcare.
We have partnered with the worlds of leading organizations: EMBL EBI, Genomics England, Sanger Institute and many others to deliver the BioData World Congress. The event will showcase innovation, demonstrate success and break through the obstacles and barriers to ensure that the innovations in genomics and big data enter the clinic with speed and efficiency. It will aim to make the dream of stratified medicine a reality.
COST Action CHARME is co-organizing a workshop on “Reproducibility, standards and SOP in bioinformatics” in collaboration with EMBNet and NETTAB. October 25-26, 2016, in Rome, Italy.
NETTAB workshops have been devoted, since 2001, to some of the most innovative ICT technologies, their adoption in bioinformatics, and related issues.Although the meeting will be focused on reproducibility in bioinformatics, it will include the usualtopics of the NETTAB workshops as well.
See the full list of topics at http://www.igst.it/nettab/2016/call/topics/ .
Moreover, a Special Session on "Bioinformatics Education and Training ", organized in collaboration with GOBLET and ELIXIR-ITA, will be included in the programme.
Other satellite events will be held during the week, in the same location, including a tutorial, jointly organized by ELIXIR-ITA and GOBLET, an ELIXIR Hackathon, and the EMBnet Annual Meetings.
The web site of the meeting is available at http://www.igst.it/nettab/2016/ .
"The CHARME of standardisation in life sciences" conference will take place from June 21 to June 22 2016 in Warsaw.
Registration and abstract submission is now open.

The first ERANet-LAC first joint call was launched in September 2014. Deadline for submission of project applications is the 27th November 2014
The ERANet-Lac was established to strengthen the bi-regional partnership between LAC countries and the countries from the European Union in Science, Technology and Innovation. The joint call provides a unique opportunity for researchers from both regions to establish new cooperations and research programmes. From Latin America 9 countries joined the ERANet-Lac, and 8 European and Associated countries.
Information about ERANet-LAC and the joint call can be found here: www.eranet-lac.eu
