CAMDA'08, Vienna, Austria, 4-6 December 2008   --

Dear colleague!

We cordially invite you to attend this year's conference on

      Critical Assessment of Microarray Data Analysis (CAMDA) .

CAMDA was founded to provide a forum for the critical assessment of
the many different techniques
used in microarray data mining (Nature 411, 885, Nature 424, 610). It
aims to establish the state of the
art in microarray data analysis, as well as highlight progress and
identify directions of future efforts.
In order to achieve these goals, CAMDA adopted the approach of a
community-wide experiment,
letting the scientific community analyse the same contest data sets.
Researchers worldwide are invited to take the CAMDA challenge.
Accepted submissions will be asked
to give an oral presentation. Results of analysis are discussed and
compared at the CAMDA conference.
As a special opportunity, this year, a selection of analysis
predictions will also be verified experimentally
by the laboratory collecting the original contest data set. CAMDA
provides a unique environment for
testing and demonstrating your latest analysis methods.

CAMDA, which began in 2000, was initiated by Simon Lin and Kimberly
Johnson from the Duke University
Bioinformatics Shared Resource (www.camda.duke.edu). CAMDA has since
become an internationally
roving conference, with the first such meeting held 2007 at CIPF in
Valencia, Spain.
This year, CAMDA is hosted by Boku University Vienna in Austria.

Your participation is critical for making this year's CAMDA meeting
again a great event.

Please do distribute this announcement to other colleagues who might
be interested.

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna!

David Kreil   &
Joaquin Dopazo
