Biohackathon 2018 Paris
November 12 - November 16
ELIXIR France with the support of the ELIXIR Hub and the ELIXIR interoperability platform and in collaboration with COST CHARME, the National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) and the Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS), is organising a BioHackathon in November 2018 in Paris. This BioHackathon will complement and work in collaboration with the BioHackathon planned in Japan at the end of 2018.
The topics of this BioHackathon will go beyond semantics and interoperability, which are typically predominant in the BioHackathons organised in Japan. The priority topics will be defined by ELIXIR platforms (data, tools, compute, interoperability and training), ELIXIR communities (e.g., metabolomics and proteomics), a selection of new tools and communities (e.g., Cytoscape and reproducible networks) proposed by ELIXIR France, and common challenges proposed for the sister BioHackathon organised in Japan.
- Engage the technical people in the bioinformatics community inside and outside ELIXIR to work together on topics of common interest aligned to ELIXIR activities
- Strengthen the interactions with ELIXIR Platforms and Communities to establish and reinforce collaborations through hands-on programming activities organised at the event.
- Advance the development of an open-source infrastructure for data integration to accelerate scientific innovation focusing on technology implementations of FAIR, identifiers, metadata standards, ontologies and metadata catalogues.
