The CHIC Summer School addresses early-stage researchers, modellers, clinicians, medical students, engineers, IT specialists and others who wish to exchange ideas and learn more about the fairly recent discipline of in silico oncology.
The Summer School is part of a whole series of workshops dedicated to IT-aided and personalized computational medicine and follows the 6th International Advanced Research Workshop on In Silico Oncology and Cancer Investigation (IARWISOCI) which was held in Athens in 2014.
The CHIC Summer School 2015 will cover a range of topics, from (hyper) modelling of tumors and diseases in general to IT-related topics such as semantics, tools, services and interoperability. Moreover, a full day of the workshop will be dedicated to the advances in in silico oncology in the clinical context. The goal of the CHIC Summer School is to foster exchange, ideas and further research and, ultimately, to increase the skills and knowledge required to understand the complexity of the fascinating, innovative discipline of in silico medicine.
The venue of this year’s workshop is the renowned Leibniz Center for Informatics at Schloss Dagstuhl in Germany which offers state-of-the-art facilities for a successful workshop.
The CHIC project is very well embedded in the VPH and computational oncology community with several consortium partners in other projects, such as VPH-Share, MyHealthAvatar, Dr Therapat, VPH-Prism, Go-Smart and the recently started project iManageCancer. Members of these consortia are very welcome to participate in the CHIC Summer School. The workshop is, however, open to all interested parties.
Registration and abstract submission for the CHIC Summer School are open until June 12, 2015. The registration sheet can be downloaded directly from the Summer School website.
Questions and comments should be sent to the organizers of the CHIC Summer School at firstname.lastname@example.org.
