Upcoming conferences relating to big data and SC1

There’s some great conferences coming up in this domain relating to big data in healthcare use cases. Some of these there will be BDE representation, but all are relevant to the challenges on using big data in this societal challenge. So, if you want to understand more about big data and how it relates to our use cases then please consider coming along to all/any/some of these:

  • BioData World Congress 21-22 October 2015 at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridge “Genomics, big data and bioinformatics mark the start of the journey, personalised medicine is the end goal. How we get there will depend on whether we can get useable intelligence from the data – and then acting on it. “
  • Open Bridges for Life Science Data 17-18 November 2015 at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridge “Join us to discuss the latest advances in the technical infrastructure behind large-scale data sharing in the life sciences, and the interoperability of data resources supporting biological, medical, translational and clinical research.”
  • Target Validation using Genomics and Informatics 8-10 December at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridge “This meeting will bring together researchers based in academia and industry to focus on the opportunities and challenges for genomics in drug discovery”

The location of these meetings is co-incidental, but all are very relevant to the challenges of big data in this domain, and particularly highlighting the 4Vs of big data – or perhaps in this domain variety variety variety and variety!
