I invite you to the next Bio-IT & de.NBier session, which will take place on June 11 (Monday) at EMBL staff lounge (18:00 onward) on the topic "OpenML Platform for Open and Collaborative Machine Learning". You are welcome to join us to listen and discuss this topic and its relevance in life-science.
With this event, we aim to provide a common platform to all the scientists in Heidelberg area who are interested in bioinformatics. Please share this event announcement anyone who might find it interesting.
Heidelberg has a significant number of research institutes that are known for their expertise in specific fields of biosciences. These institutes support life-scientists who are not only biologists but also informaticians, mathematicians, engineers and experts from many other disciplines, who together constitute a large bioinformatics community. These scientists from different research groups potentially face similar kind of challenges in their day-to-day work and develop highly specialized bio-computational solutions to address them, however, they have limited opportunities to share their ideas and collaborate with each other.
Heidelberg Center for Human Bioinformatics (HD-HuB) is hosting an event series in collaboration with Bio-IT EMBL – Technical sessions with de.NBier and Bio-IT, in order to provide a common platform to the life-scientists in and around Heidelberg to network with each other and exchange their knowledge. We will organize this event periodically on various technical issues to facilitate discussions and opportunities for scientific networking in an informal set-up over drinks.
The general format of the event is to choose a technical topic every month in Bioinformatics, have 1-3 speakers present their experience and knowledge in a short talk, followed by a general discussion in a world cafe format (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Cafe).
I will update the topics and dates on our website and our meetup page every month.
We are the members of HD-HuB (https://www.hd-hub.de), which is one of the partners of The German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure – de.NBI (https://www.denbi.de/), a national infrastructure supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research providing bioinformatics services to life-science and biomedicine users. HD-HuB provides courses and training opportunities in diverse topics, in addition to hosting various events and bio-computational resources to assist researchers in and around Heidelberg.
