Global Controls in Stem Cells

Global Controls in Stem Cells

5-7 November 2014 Singapore

The ISSCR’s Regional Forum Series expands the global reach of our educational programming in 2014 by partnering with the Stem Cell Society Singapore (SCSS) for a joint conference, Global Controls in Stem Cells. Designed to complement the ISSCR Annual Meeting, Regional Forums are held in more intimate settings and provide a focused look at specific topics within stem cell research. In 2014, ISSCR is joining SCSS to offer a cutting-edge program. Global Controls in Stem Cells will also be the SCSS’s Annual Symposium.

International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications

International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications

12 September 2014 London, United Kingdom

The event is part of the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2014) at the Guildhall School of Music in London.

The vast amount of content hosted by digital libraries nowadays poses new challenges to the research community. It's no longer enough to make publications available for human readers; enormous value can be derived from opening these catalogues of data to machine reading.

Data mining tools can be used to read scholarly articles, transforming them from lists of words and images into real-world information such as facts, opinions and hypothesis. This can be a great time-saver for researchers, helping them to find important information in huge corpora quickly and easily.

The 3rd International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications, which is collocated with the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2014) September 8 to 12 in London, will explore these possibilities by bringing together people from different backgrounds who are interested in analysing and mining databases of scientific publications. In addition, the conference is open to all those involved in developing systems to enable such analysis, designing new technologies to improve the way research is being done, and supporting the openness and free availability of publications and research data.

Mendeley is co-organizing the event along with CORE, the Open University, Athena Research and Innovation Center, and the European Library/ Europeana .

The audience for the workshop will be a mixture of cross-disciplinary researchers, practitioners from industry and government, open access enthusiasts, and digital library developers.

Together, we will discuss different approaches to addressing the challenges of mining scientific publications, and we're now inviting people to submit their papers online, for inclusion in the programme. Both long papers (up to eight pages in the ACM style) and short papers (not exceeding four pages) are welcome, as are practical demonstrations and presentation of systems and methods (demonstration submissions should consist of a two-page description of the system, method or tool).The workshop will be structured around three main themes:

The whole ecosystem of infrastructures, including repositories, aggregators, text-and data-mining facilities, impact monitoring tools, datasets, services and APIs that enable analysis of large volumes of scientific publications.

Semantic enrichment of scientific publications by means of text-mining, crowdsourcing or other methods.

Analysis of large databases of scientific publications to identify research trends, high impact, cross-fertilisation between disciplines, research excellence etc.

International Stress and Behavior Society (ISBS) 7th One-day Zebrafish Behavioral Neuroscience and Neurophenotyping Workshop (ZB2N-2014)

 In conjunction with SfN-14 meeting

Washington DC, Nov 14 or Nov 20, 2014 Georgetown University School for Continuing Studies, Downtown DC (next to the SfN Convention Center)

As more and more labs are establishing zebrafish (Danio rerio) projects, zebrafish are rapidly becoming a popular model organism for neuroscience research. This day-long ISBS course consists of a series of lectures covering major neurobehavioral domains and advanced phenotyping techniques for probing normal and pathological behaviors in zebrafish. The lectures will be followed by informal breakout sessions discussing the practical application of zebrafish screens, 2D and 3D behavioral analyses, video-tracking tools, and future new directions in the field. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to present their data, discuss their research problems, and obtain expert consultation from workshop organizers.

• Introduction to behavioral ecology of zebrafish

• General motor phenotypes

• Neurotoxicity models

• Anxiety and fear-related behaviors

• Social phenotypes: shoaling and social preference

• Memory and Learning

• Predator avoidance behavior

• Depression-like phenotypes

• Drug abuse and withdrawal

• Genetic/strain differences

• Aggression and boldness phenotypes

• Advanced video-tracking and 3D phenotyping

2nd Conference on In-Situ and Correlative Electron Microscopy

2nd Conference on In-Situ and Correlative Electron Microscopy

October 14-15, 2014 Saarbruecken, Germany

CISCEM 2014 aims to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scientists from the fields of biology, materials science, chemistry, and physics, to discuss future directions of electron microscopy research. Topics will include nanoscale study of biological samples, and functional materials under realistic or near realistic conditions, for example, in gaseous environments, at elevated temperatures, and in liquid.

It will be discussed how processes can be studied by including the time domain in electron microscopy, or by a combination of different microscopy methods, for example, correlative fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy, or by using nanoparticle labels.

Big Data in Life Sciences

In conjunction with the ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Health Informatics

Saturday, September 20, 2014 Newport Beach, California

The ever-growing volume and diversity of biological and biomedical data collections continues to pose new challenges and increasing demands on computing and data management. The inherent complexity of this Big Data forces us to rethink how we collect, store, combine and analyze it. BigLS, pronounced "Beagles", is a workshop dedicated to the broad theme of Big Data in life sciences. The goal of the workshop is to bring together leading researchers and practitioners working on a diverse range of Big Data problems relating to biology and medicine, and engage them in a discussion about current Big Data problems, the state of computational tools and analytics, the challenges and the future trends within life sciences. In this context, the workshop focus is on, yet is not limited to, the following broad themes:

Scalable algorithms and techniques for Big Data analytics in molecular biology

Statistical and integrative approaches to Big Data biology and informatics

High performance computing methods and software for Big Data biology

Scientific workflows and platforms for Big Data in life sciences

Software and hardware solutions for managing Big Data in biomedical informatics

Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health Symposium

Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health Symposium

5 January 2015 Phoenix, Arizona.

A one-day Symposium on Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health sponsored by the American Meteorology Society (AMS), and organized by the AMS Committee for Meteorological Aspects of Air Pollution and the AMS Board on Environment and Health will be held 5 January 2015, as part of the 95th AMS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.  Preliminary programs, registration, hotel, and general information will be posted on the AMS Web site ( in late-September 2014.

The theme for the 2015 AMS Annual Meeting is “Fulfilling the Vision of Weather, Water, and Climate Information for Every Need, Time, and Place”. In our modern society, people, businesses, and governments increasingly depend on weather and climate information to anticipate the quality of the air that we breathe and the consequent heath effects. This information on air pollution and health effects influences decisions that range from the development of local, state, and national policies to an individual decisions regarding outdoor activities or anticipating and preparing for the impacts that these activities will have on one’s health.  Developing the necessary science and technologies to produce this information requires an integrated multi-disciplinary solution that involves a combination of atmospheric science and biomedical science / public health expertise.  The goal of this symposium is to bring together the scientists and researchers required to solve these challenging problems in a forum that encourages the exchange of information across these scientific disciplines.
