6th International Advanced Research Workshop on In Silico Oncology and Cancer Investigation – The CHIC Project Workshop
Greece

6th International Advanced Research Workshop on In Silico Oncology and Cancer Investigation – The CHIC Project Workshop

3-4 November 2014 Athens, Greece

In silico medicine, an emergent scientific and technological domain based on clinically driven and oriented multiscale biomodeling, appears to be the latest trend regarding the translation of mathematical and computational biological science to clinical practice through massive exploitation of information technology. The term multiscale refers to several scales or levels of the manifestation of life such as the molecular, the cellular, the tissue, the organ, and the body system scales addressed concurrently.

The overarching idea is to view disease as a hypercomplex and multiscale natural phenomenon amenable to modeling and simulation. In silico (i.e., on the computer) experimentation for each individual patient using their own multiscale biomedical data is expected to significantly improve the effectiveness of treatment in the future, since reliable computer predictions could suggest the optimal treatment scheme(s) and schedules(s) for each separate case.

Clinically driven complex multiscale cancer models can produce realistic spatio-temporal simulations of concrete clinical interventions such as radio-chemotherapy applied to individual patients.

Clinical data processing procedures and computer technologies play an important role in this context. Following clinical adaptation and validation within the framework of clinico-genomic trials, models are expected to enhance individualized treatment optimization.  The latter constitutes the long term goal of the emergent scientific, technological and medical discipline of in silico oncology.

Treatment optimization is to be achieved through experimentation in silico. Moreover, provision of insight into tumour dynamics and optimization of clinical trial design and interpretation constitute short- and mid-term goals of this new domain.

The workshop to be held in Athens, Greece  is meant to be an excellent opportunity for both shaping and advancing the new discipline.

4th International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering
France
06/29/2015

4th International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering

29 June - 1 July 2015

Ecole Normale Superieure de Cahan (ENS Cachan) 61 Avenue du President Wilson 94230 Cachan, France

Computational and Mathematical Biomedical Engineering is a rapidly expanding research area with the promise of considerable implications on human health and wellbeing. Computational and mathematical modelling now plays a significant role in improving our knowledge of the biological processes in the human body and the pathophysiology of diseases. In addition, it supports the development of appropriate diagnostic tools, new instrumentation and medical devices to enable better clinical outcomes.

The International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering aims at bringing together fellow researchers and academics, specialists of several disciplines, practitioners and graduate students with a common interest, to discuss the current state of the art of Computational Biomedical Engineering research.

BCDE 2014 -- IEEE Workshop – Big Data in Computational Epidemiology
United States
Washington, DC
10/27/2014

BCDE 2014 -- IEEE Workshop – Big Data in Computational Epidemiology

The workshop is part of the 2014 IEEE International Conference on Big Data to be held in Washington DC on October 27, 2014.

Computational epidemiology aims to understand the spread of diseases and efficient strategies to mitigate their outbreak. It studies dynamics in socio-technical systems, where disease spread co-evolves with public health interventions as well as individual behavior. It has evolved from ODE models to networked models which apply agent based modeling and simulation methodologies. Computation of such high resolution models involves processing data sets that are massive, disparate, heterogeneous, evolving (at an ever increasing rate), and potentially unstructured and of various quality.

The workshop brings together researchers from epidemiology, data science, computational science, and health IT domains to tap the potential of emerging technologies in data intensive computations and analytical processing to advance the state of art in computational epidemiology. The central theme of how to manage, integrate, analyze, and visualize vast array of datasets has wider applications in the bio- and physical- simulation and informatics based sciences such as immunology, high energy physics, and medical informatics.

Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing

Big Island of Hawaii -- January 4-8, 2015

The twentieth Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB), will be held January 4-8, 2015 at the Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island of Hawaii. PSB will bring together top researchers from North America, the Asian Pacific nations, Europe and around the world to exchange research results and address open issues in all aspects of computational biology. PSB will provide a forum for the presentation of work in databases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, modeling and other computational methods, as applied to biological problems, with emphasis on applications in data-rich areas of molecular biology. PSB intends to attract a balanced combination of computer scientists and biologists, presenting significant original research, demonstrating computer systems, and facilitating formal and informal discussions on topics of importance to computational biology.

To provide focus for the very broad area of biological computing, PSB is organized into a series of specific sessions. Each session will involve both formal research presentations and open discussion groups.

• Cancer Panomics: Computational methods and infrastructure for integrative analysis of cancer high-throughput "omics" data to enable precision oncology

• Characterizing the Importance of Environmental Exposures, Interactions between the Environment and Genetic Architecture, and Genetic Interactions: New Methods for Understanding the Etiology of Complex Traits and Disease

• Crowdsourcing and Mining Crowd Data

• Including the Public in Research Projects: The impact on informatics from emerging global health research paradigms

• Personalized medicine: from genotypes, molecular phenotypes and the quantified self, towards improved medicine

• Cancer Pathways: Automatic Extraction, Representation, and Reasoning in the Big Data Era
