CAMDA 2013 Conference

The 12th CAMDA conference will be held in Berlin, Germany from Friday, July 19 through Saturday, July 20, 2013. As in recent years, CAMDA runs as a Satellite Meeting of the Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB).

CAMDA focuses on the specific challenges and opportunities in the analysis of the massive data sets that are increasingly produced in several fields of the life sciences. The conference offers researchers from the computer sciences, statistics, molecular biology, and other fields a unique opportunity to benefit from a critical comparative evaluation of the latest approaches in the analysis of life sciences' “Big Data”.

This year, CAMDA's scientific committee set up two challenges:
1) the prediction of drug compatibility from an extremely large toxicogenomic data set, and
2) the decoding of genomes from the Korean Personal Genome Project.

Leading scientists from around the world are selected to present their analyses in talks, complemented by poster sessions. Papers based on the submitted extended abstracts submitted for presentation at the meeting are published in the conference proceedings. Starting with 2012, CAMDA has entered a partnership with Landes Biosciences, publishing the CAMDA Proceedings as an open access PubMed indexed special issue of Systems Biomedicine. As in last years, there will be prizes for the best contributed analysis / presentations. The three prize winners will receive a free one-year subscription to F1000Prime (worth $250) and a free submission to F1000Research (worth $1000). The first prize winner will additionally receive the prestigious CAMDA award.

We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin!

CAMDA award We congratulate Marinka Zitnik, Deepali Jhamb, and Ashley Bonner for winning the prizes for the best presentation.
