Apologies if you receive this more than once.
It is the pleasure of the Microarray Gene Expression and Data (MGED)
society to announce the MGED11 meeting in Trentino, Italy, Monday
September 1st -> Wednesday September 3rd, 2008. In addition, there
will be two days of optional tutorials and workshops following the
meeting on September 4th and 5th.
Further information is available at http://mgedmeeting.org/ and key
Registration and Abstract Submission Opens: March 1st
Deadline for Abstract submission for consideration as an oral
presentation : June 10th
Notice of acceptance: June 25th
Early registration ends: June 30th
Abstract submission closes: August 5th
The scientific focus of the meeting will be high throughput
technologies - in particular microarrays and ultra high throughput
sequencing - and associated data handling issues and analysis
techniques. With the continued maturation of microarray annotation
standards and tools, this year's meeting will offer more 'hands-on'
tutorials and workshops to tackle specific practical applications of
these concepts. Tutorials are expected to cover in depth data
analysis and how to use Bioconductor.
We have already lined up the following outstanding international
Naama Barkai - Weizmann Institute of Science
Ewan Birney - EMBL-EBI
Joe Gray - UCSF/ Lawrence Berkeley Nat'l Laboratory
Steve Oliver - Cambridge University
and will announce invited plenary speakers in the near future. In
addition, this year we will again be selecting half of the plenary
speakers from submitted abstracts, to encourage greater participation
in the MGED community. Continuing from last year, we will again be
running a poster competition, with prizes for the best posters
presented by graduate and postdoctoral students.
We look forward to seeing you all in Trentino,
The Microarray and Gene Expression Data (MGED) Society
