LEARN Project's Final Conference, London, United Kingdom

The use and sharing of research data has the potential fundamentally to change the way research is undertaken and shared. Pervasive networks mean that researchers are able to collaborate and share not only their publications, but also the research data, which underpins them. The LEARN Conference is designed to encourage all stakeholders - researchers, research funders, publishers, research organisations and senior decision makers - to explore what their roles and responsibilities are in this fast-changing environment.

The EU-funded LEARN Project has produced a model Research Data Management policy, along with guidance, for implementation at institutional level. An Executive Briefing, aimed at senior decision makers in six languages, gives clear signals on how research organisations can deal with the data deluge. A self-assessment survey allows institutions to measure their level of preparation for research data management activity. Finally, a Toolkit of 23 Best Practice Case Studies illustrates issues in the areas of policy and leadership; advocacy; subject-based approaches; open data; research data infrastructure; costs; roles, responsibilities and skills; tool development.

The conference will be split into two sessions. The morning session will be devoted to formal presentations, whilst the afternoon slot will have breakout groups which will examine the outputs of the LEARN Project and how they can be taken up by stakeholders. If you want to understand what your role is in the research data landscape, this is a conference not to be missed.

Workshop on Clusters, Clouds and Grids for Life Sciences, Madrid, Spain

Today, biomedicine and bioinformatics rely heavily on large scale computational resources, as they typically employ data- and compute-intensive methods. Omics, biomedical imaging and computational models quickly reach data volumes of terabytes and petabytes, data analysis may need teraflops or petaflops of computing power. New challenges arise from complex analysis of distributed heterogeneous data, for example in translational medicine.

Distributed IT-systems such as Grids, Clouds and recently Big Data environments are used for to speed-up large experiments and development time for new algorithms. Distributed systems also allow for better availability of new computational methods for supporting large-scale multi-centric collaborations. However, specific challenges in the employment of such systems for biomedical applications, such as security, reliability and user-friendliness, often impede wide-range adoption of prototype solutions.

This workshop aims at bringing together developers of bioinformatics and biomedical applications and researchers in the field of distributed IT systems. The goals of the workshop are to exchange and discuss existing solutions and latest developments in both fields, in particular for identified gaps and roadblocks. The workshop further intends to collaboratively explore new approaches to successfully apply distributed IT-systems in translational research, clinical intervention, and decision-making.

Contributions are expected but not restricted to the following topics:

  • Detailed application use-cases highlighting achievements and roadblocks
  • Exploitation of distributed IT resources for Life Sciences, health care and research applications, for example medical imaging, disease modelling, bioinformatics, public health informatics, drug discovery, clinical trials
  • Service and/or algorithm design and implementation applicable to medical and bioinformatics applications
  • Improved energy consumption of bioinformatics applications using Clouds
  • Modelling and simulation of complex biological processes
  • Genomics and Molecular Structure evolution
  • Molecular Dynamics
  • Ontologies and biomedical text mining
  • Biomedical data mining and visualization
  • Error handling and fault tolerance

Fifth Dutch National eScience Symposium, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The Dutch National eScience Symposium is a one-day event where scientists and researchers from different disciplines meet to discover how digital technology impacts scientific practice. The symposium will feature five thematic sessions showcasing world-class data-driven and compute-intensive research in different fields:

  • Internet of Things
  • Energy Science
  • Natural Language
  • Brain, Cognition and Behaviour
  • Future of Machine Learning

The thematic sessions are organized in partnership with SURFnet, NWO-Shell programme, CLARIAH, NeurolabNL and Commit2Data.

Digital technology cross-cuts all scientific domains. Our understanding of the universe, dealing with the challenges of climate change and discovering new energy sources, analyzing human behaviour, or tracking athletes' performances are just a couple of areas where digital technology is being used to enhance scientific research.

The cross-cutting aspect means that technologies used in one field can be applicable across other fields. This annual symposium is an opportunity for anyone working in academia or industry with an interest in digital technology and scientific research. It is the place to meet researchers, students, data scientists, scientific administrators, CIOs and CTOs dealing with the challenges and potential of digital technologies; from the humanities to physics and beyond.
