The scientific program includes Keynotes by leading researchers in the field and selected presentations of contest dataset analyses.

The two-day meeting also features a poster session and opportunitoes for informal discussions during a social dinner on Friday.

The conference closes on Saturday in time for delegates to join to the City Hall evening reception of ISMB/ECCB.

We are delighted to welcome you to the CAMDA keynote talks by established experts in the field.

Terry Speed

Portrait of Terry Speed Professor Terry Speed heads the Bioinformatics division at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI), in Melbourne, Australia.

Terry has made key contributions to microarray analysis, and has early identified the need for thorough low-level analysis of the data. His research interests include a large variety of applications, such as his recent contributions to the study of confounding factors in genome wide DNA methylation measurements or his research work on base calling for resequencing chips.

John Storey

Portrait of John Storey Professor John D. Storey heads the Genomine research group at the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics of Princeton University.

John's group is interested in the analysis of high-dimensional data sets, such as large-scale genotyping or gene expression profiles. He has developed efficient approaches to the multiple-testing problem central to the field. His recent research addresses challenges of integrating multiple genome wide data sources and the identification of confounding structures.

Stefano Volinia

Portrait of Stefano VoliniaProfessor Stefano Volinia is a Researcher at the Department of Morphology and embriology and heads the Data Mining for Analysis of DNA Microarrays Telethon Facility of Ferrara University

Stefano has a background in cancer genetics and bioinformatics. As a postdoctoral fellow at Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (London, UK), Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA), and Telethon Institute for Genetics and Medicine (Italy), he carried out extensive studies on both cancer biology, in particular signal transduction, and analysis of genomics data. He developed and applied new tools relevant to miRNA function in cancer. Recently, he became involved in the application of next-generation sequencing to cancer genomics. This work involved both digital expression studies of miRNome and transcriptome and mutation detection.
