Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fifth Annual

Bioinformatics for Big Data

Converting Data into Actionable Knowledge

March 7 – 9, 2016 | Moscone North Convention Center | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 23rd International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference

 

Bioinformatics continues to face challenges of integrating molecular biological information with processes of quality patient care and accelerating the discovery of useful new therapies. The challenges are triggered by the increasing biomedical research that needs to be performed with large-scale data. Scientists are able to study entire systems of data in parallel using a variety of tools and methods. Tremendous computational resources are required to store, compute, analyze, and share. Through lectures and panel discussions, the fifth Annual Bioinformatics for Big Data Program will assemble thought leaders who will present solutions to some of these challenges. You’ll hear the latest developments of bioinformatics database platforms and tools that provide proper scalable archive strategies, optimize computing capacities, simplify data and NGS workflow, flexible and open analysis and interpretation, better collaboration models, and faster time to science. You’ll also hear best practice case studies of taking data from multiple –omics sources and aligning it with clinical action. Turning big data into smart data can lead to real time assistance in disease prevention, prognosis, diagnostics, and therapeutics.

Who should attend: Directors, Managers, Researchers, and Scientists from Pharma, Biotechs, Academia, Government and Healthcare Organizations working in Research, Biomedical Informatics, Information Technology, Data Science, Modeling & Simulation, R&D Informatics, Software Engineering, Translational Genomics, Predictive Medicine, Biostatistics, Computational Biology, and Bioinformatics

Program themes will center on the following:

  • Scalable Archive and Storage Strategies
  • Computing and Scaling Capacities
  • Data and NGS Workflow Models
  • Flexible and Open Analysis and Interpretation Strategies
  • Security and Access Controls
  • Collaboration Models

If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.

The deadline for submission is August 28, 2015.

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
