W14 - Workshop on Sharing Data, Tools and Models for Workflows in Biomedical Research

!!!! We are sorry to inform you that this workshop N¬į 14 had to be CANCELLED !!!!



Access to available tools and data in the biomedical domain is dramatically important to support the creation of new knowledge capitalizing on already available resources. The VPH-Share Integrated Project aims to develop an easy to use and secure infostructure to expose and share data and knowledge within the biomedical community, and to jointly develop multiscale models for the composition of new clinical workflows. During its first years of activity the consortium has developed the core ICT and technical components of the new infostructure: besides data sharing, the VPH-Share infostructure facilitates the collaboration in the biomedical community, by providing services to share and re-use fundamental modelling components, making them available for the composition of new biomedical workflows.

As the research community will be the primary beneficiary of the developed service, we believe that it is essential for the potential users to actively participate and contribute so to drive the next VPH-Share developments in a direction, which is useful for the project and to the community at large. This one day workshop thus aims at both presenting the VPH-Share results and give voice to other presenters with contributions software components for sharing and re-using biological modelling tools.

The workshop is intended to have 10 presentations selected from contributing papers. The contributing papers will be one page abstract and will be subjected to quality standard review by the members of the Scientific Committee. Papers should be written following the provided template and needs to be submitted in pdf format to the workshop organisers by email by the the 7th of June 2014 (extended deadline!).
