The 2018 CPW edition has passed. Thanks to all participants for joining us in Athens, Greece!

The second 2018 bioinformatics and computational pathology summit (CPW) took place in conjunction with ECCB, the annual international computational biology / bioinformatics conference.

The second CPW summit took place in Athens, Greece on Sunday, September 9, 2018. A pre-workshop dinner was organized at Saturday, September 8.

The final program from the 2018 edition is now available.

Why CPW?

Jeffrey Fine, one of our keynote speakers of the 2016 edition, writes the following:

Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are everywhere, and digital (computational) pathology is no exception. As more and more pathologists begin to work with whole slide images (WSIs), they begin to understand that these digital data sets are full of unlocked potential. This workshop presents and frames these emerging technologies that will get pathologists and bioinformaticians alike up to speed.

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:

How to advertise

One great way to participate already is by spreading the word for this event. We offer two template images currently that you can use in your own presentations, or for print flyers/announcements in your own organization:
