The Genotype Tissue Expression (GTEx) Project Community Meeting - Barcelona, Spain

The GTEx Community meeting is held annually and is open to the scientific community who are interested in learning more about the project and data, or who are already using the data in their research. Prior meetings have been held in the US at the Broad Institute (2014), the University of Chicago (2015) and at Stanford University (2016). This year, for the first time the meeting will be held in Europe, in Barcelona in April 20 - 21, 2017 following the completion of the main production phase of GTEx data. It will aim to congregate a community of scientists from all over the world that are using, or that plan to benefit from using, the GTEx data.

Systims2017 - Ascona, Switzerland

The understanding of adaptive immunity is of paramount importance for human health and the prevention of disease. A full understanding of its complexity may only be gained by adopting a multi-scale systems approach that integrates high-throughput and computational methods. This conference will bring together established researchers and young scientists from different facets of the burgeoning field of systems immunology. Topics presented will range from data-driven mathematical modeling of the complex regulation of lymphocytes to the analysis of immune repertoires in health and disease. Systims2017 will be held from May 14 to 17, 2017 at the Conference Center Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland.
