INBIOMEDvision Training Challenge 2012

23 Apr 2012 to 27 Apr 2012
Catalonia, Spain (near Barcelona)

From April 23rd to April 27th, 2012 the INBIOMEDvision Training Challenge will be held in a nice location close to Barcelona. During the Training Challenge 2 groups of 5 advanced students with expertise on different biomedical (informatics) fields will collaboratively work on a single case study.

The call for student applications is now open! Application deadline: December 31st, 2011.

Each student will be asked to submit a motivated case study - for example a topic from your PhD works that is suitable for a multidisciplinary approach and that focuses on more personalised healthcare. Among the case studies proposed, the organizing committee will select one case study per group.

INBIOMEDvision will cover travel costs, accommodation and meals. No registration fee is charged. During the whole week INBIOMEDvision staff members from different areas of expertise will closely supervise and collaborate with the teams. At the end of the week both teams will present their results at a closing scientific event in Barcelona. A jury will select the winning team which will be rewarded with a prize.

INBIOMEDvision is an initiative funded by the European Commission that aims to identify and disseminate common ground and possible synergies between Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics, and thus develop Biomedical Informatics (BMI) als a scientiic field that serves to progress in health care and biomedical research. BMI deals with the integrative management and synergic exploitation of the wide ranging and inter-related scope of information that is generated and needed in healthcare settings, biomedical research institutions and health-related industry.
