Description

We would like to invite you to participate in our upcoming one-day CompBioMed meeting on Cloud & HPC in Biomedicine on Thursday 27th April 2017. This event is free to attend.

The day will involve presentations from our Core and Associate Partners, punctuated with discussions over tea and coffee, with lunch provided. Please follow this link to view the agenda:

This meeting is intended to provide a forum for users from academia, industry and healthcare sectors to meet with open source software developers alongside independent software and hardware vendors, in order to determine what the best selection of capabilities is to meet their own needs. It will thereby help CompBioMed to define directions in which we would like to advance our users' interests.

Microsoft is proud to sponsor Cloud & High Performance Computing in Biomedicine 2017. Academic participants can receive a $500 Azure cloud credits, valid for one month, by simply emailing Kenji.Takeda@Microsoft.com Larger Azure awards are available through the Microsoft Azure for Research program – apply by June 15th 2017 at www.azure4research.com

CompBioMed is an EU-commission Horizon 2020 user-driven Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Computational Biomedicine.

The main objective of the CoE is to nurture and promote the uptake and exploitation of high performance computing (HPC) within the biomedical community. We are keen to form partnerships throughout the world that will strengthen the project’s collaborative output.
