DREAM Challenges and EPIDEMIUM@RECOMB in Paris 2018

DREAM Challenges and EPIDEMIUM@RECOMB in Paris
 – April 19-20, 2018

The meeting will focus on proteogenomics, single cell systems biology and cancer epidemiology, and how crowdsourced science, data sharing and a culture of collaboration can help advance research in these fields. We will highlight the solutions of the top performing strategies in the Epidemium program in cancer epidemiology and the recent NCI-CPTAC Proteogenomics DREAM Challenge. We will also brainstorm as a community on the possibility of organizing a DREAM challenge on Single Cell Systems Biology.

1/2 Day Workshops

1) Designing your collaborative open science campaign

A growing amount of scientific research is done in an open manner. Numerous examples demonstrate that open initiatives including crowd, citizen- or open science are dealing with more and more complex problems, moving towards producing more tangible results. Still, open science approach is not widely used practice by researchers. Then why is it difficult to create tangible scientific outputs with crowds? What are the pain points that actors face today and how to avoid them? How to ensure the success of your open science initiatives? What is the future of collaborative open science? We invite you to our collaborative session that brings together practitioners & researchers. Our goal is to discuss open science challenges that actors face and to identify together how they can be solved.

2)  RAMP Challenge Hands on Session
Monoclonal antibodies constitute one of the most important strategies to treat patients suffering from cancers such as hematological malignancies and solid tumors. In order to guarantee the quality of those preparations quality control has to be developed. The aim of this study is to explore a noninvasive, nondestructive, and rapid analytical method to ensure the quality of the final preparation without causing any delay in the process. The RAMP challenge will be divided into an initial individual phase followed by a collaborative phase of discussion. Solutions will be shown instantly in a leaderboard. Ensemble predictions will also be performed during the RAMP workshop.  More information herePre-sign up for RAMP Session.  (30 participants needed to preregister to reserve the session.)
