Call for papers for PSB 2018 Workshop

On behalf of my co-organizers Philip Payne (Washington University), Jessie Tenenbaum (Duke University), Lara Mangravite (Sage Bionetworks), it is my pleasure to invite you to submit your research for the PSB 2018 Workshop: Democratizing Health Data for Translational Research.

Submission deadline: August 1, 2017

Following last year’s workshop on “Open Data for Discovery Science”, as well as the inaugural Research Parasite Award ceremony (http://researchparasite.com/) at PSB, we are planning this session to address best practices, lessons learned, and the need for both technical and policy innovation for sharing of health data for translational research.

We invite paper submissions for this session that address the following areas:

  • The creation, verification and validation of tools and methods for sharing, discovery, and analysis of open health data.
  • The conduct of discovery science in data-intensive experimental contexts that leverage such open health data resources across scales from molecules to patient to populations
  • The interaction of multidisciplinary computational, biology, clinical, and population health science teams to conduct research that serves to identify policy, technical, and socio-cultural needs.

Meeting date and location: January 3-7, 2018 – The Big Island of Hawaii

Please forward to any groups or individuals who might be interested.
