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
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.
In addition, the Emerald project has just provided fresh data from
an experiment dissecting technical and biological variance in
known mixture samples on three different platforms.

CAMDA, which began in 2000, was initiated by Simon Lin and Kimberly
Johnson from the Duke University Bioinformatics Shared Resource
<http://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
