We're proud to announce the second 2018 bioinformatics and computational pathology summit (CPW) in conjunction with ECCB, the annual international computational biology / bioinformatics conference.

The second CPW summit will take place in Athens, Greece on Sunday, September 9, 2018. See also the full schedule for that day of ECCB at http://eccb18.org/workshops-sigs/. The CPW workshop is listed as W4.

Why CPW?

Digital pathology is increasingly used to study biological processes and diseases as novel molecular probing and imaging techniques allow the measurement of single molecules in whole tissue sections. Resulting multi-gigapixel images can be viewed on a computer screen via dedicated software. However, automated analysis of such large-scale datasets is challenging and their combination with omics data is not trivial. This workshop wants to facilitate bridging opportunities between the bioinformatics and tissue image analysis communities.

The CPW summit (SIG) wants to address two emerging opportunities:

We're still looking for additional sponsors. Contact us if you're interested.

How to participate

One of the goals of the summit is to build a virtual community that links interested parties from both the bioinformatics and the digital pathology / whole slide imaging / microscopy communities alike. We want to be a jumping board supporting and co-organizing meetings, connecting researchers, results, and resources, pointing to training opportunities and the latest published research.

This is a new initiative. Do have a look at frequently asked questions page for additional information and enlightenment.
