Dear colleague,

 We kindly remind your our invitation to the new edition of CAMDA


The European Project for Standards and Standardizations of Microarray
Technology and  Data Analysis (EMERALD,
http://www.microarray-quality.org/index.html) sponsors a workshop
Session in Valencia on December 13, 2007, hosted by CAMDA.

The EMERALD consortium would like to announce three travel grants for
Ph.D. students who are citizens of the European Union member states to
help them to participate in the CAMDA 2007-EMERALD workshop Session in

In its first European edition, a selection of contributions
to the CAMDA07 Conference will be published in Genomics

For more info see:


 CAMDA07 will be held in December 13th-14th,  2007 at the Centro de
 Investigacion Principe Felipe (http://www.cipf.es) in Valencia,
 See previous editions of CAMDA in: http://www.camda.duke.edu/.
 As you might know, CAMDA decided to become roving in the last edition
 and this is the first year for the conference to be held in Europe.

 CAMDA was founded to provide a forum to critically assess different
 techniques used in microarray data mining. It aims to establish the
 state-of-the-art in microarray data mining, as well as identify
 and highlight the direction for future efforts. In order to achieve
 these goals, CAMDA adopted the approach of community-wide experiment,
 letting the scientific community analyze the same standard data sets.
 Researchers worldwide are invited to take the CAMDA challenge.
 authors will be invited to give an oral presentation. Results of
 analysis are discussed and compared at the CAMDA conference.
