15th Annual International Conference on Critical Assessment of Massive Data Analysis (CAMDA 2016)
Sprache des Titels:
The emergence of Big Data in the life sciences is considered one of the grand challenges of our time. The interpretation of large data sets is now one of the scientific key techniques in the post genomic era. Still the data analysis bottleneck limits genome scale experiments in providing new medical and biological insights at a larger scale. This trend towards the need for analysing massive data sets is further accelerated by novel high throughput sequencing technologies and the increasing size of biomedical studies. CAMDA focuses on the analysis and integration of the massive data sets now prevalent in the life sciences. It introduces new approaches and solutions to the Big Data problem, and presents new techniques in the field of bioinformatics, data analysis, and statistics for handling and processing challenging large data sets. By discussing cutting-edge problems and opportunities, the conference offers researchers from a wide range of fields a unique opportunity to benefit from a critical comparative evaluation of approaches to exploiting Big Data in the life-sciences.
