...be quick to B3 (Big Biology and Bioinformatics Symposium) 2015!
6th October, 2015
Insitut Pasteur, 28 rue du Dr Roux, Paris, France
Satellite Workshop of GdR BiM 2015
This workshop aims at promoting discussions and collaborations between biologists (modelers), computer scientists and applied-mathematicians involved in metagenomics and/or metatranscriptomics studies, either in the bioinformatics or statistical aspects of such analysis.
Metagenomics studies refer to analyses based on high-throughput sequencing of environmental samples and microbial ecosystems. Both marker-gene (16S, 18S, ITS, ...) and whole-genome strategies will be adressed to cover a wide array of question ranging from quantifying the microbial diversity in order to find structuring factors to assessing the functional role of microbial communities.
The workshop will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art methods currently used in metaomics including comparative metagenomics and metatranscriptomics. At the other end of the spectrum, case-studies will illustrate how these methods produce insightful biological knowledge.
The program of this workshop will consist mainly of presentations of refereed papers (30 minutes) and invited talks (50 minutes). Contributions are welcomed on all aspects about bioinformatics and statistical analyses of metaomics datasets, including, but not limited to:
* new methods, tools or pipelines involved in the characterisation of microbial diversity,
* original methods for taxonomical assignment,
* data reduction,
* comparative metaomics,
* models for community assembly,
* challenges for tackling the complexity of metaomics datasets.

Please send the abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org
All submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the program committee.
Submitted abstracts should not exceed 2 pages including bibliography.
Abstracts must be written and presented in English. They may describe work that has already been published or that is simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings.
The worskhop is free of registration fees but registration is still mandatory through this registration form. Moreover, for security reasons, the organizers would have to provide the name of all the participants to Institut Pasteur some days before ; participants need then to register before October 1st.
Submission Deadline (abstract): 6th September, 2015
Notification: 14th September, 2015
Registration deadline : October 1st, 2015

In the last decade Big Data Analytics has become a major decision support factor in industry and government organisations. Visual Analytics is the enabling science for effective exploration of big data through meaningful visualisations and interactive user interfaces. Understanding the multidisciplinary nature, including user querying, powerful analytics, machine learning, visualisation, human-computer interaction, perception and cognition, is critical for Visual Analytics to be effectively deployed.
The symposium will be held at the beautiful Hobart harbour site of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) on 22-25th September 2015. BDVA’15 will host an exciting programme with internationally renowned keynote speakers, special sessions, and a day of complimentary hands-on workshops. BDVA’15 will be the first of its kind with the aims to
- bring together leading experts from all relevant scientific domains to advance the understanding of visual analytics of complex, big, and dynamic data;
- provide an exciting venue for researchers to network and establish national and international collaborations; and
- provide early career scientists with an inspiring event allowing them to connect to relevant experts in the field.
The symposium will accept a range of manuscript types, including methods, systems, applications, evaluation techniques and theoretical work in the area of Visual Analytics. The scientific scope of the symposium includes, but is not limited to:
- Visual Analytics of High-dimensional and Spatio-temporal Data
- Scientific and Information Visualisation
- Machine Learning and Data Mining for Big Data Visual Analytics
- Visual Representation and Interaction
- Perception and Cognition of Visual Information
- Analytical Reasoning and Sense-making on Big Data
- Context-driven User Querying
- Semantics-driven Visual Analytics
- Evaluation Methods for Visual Analytics
- Visual Analytics Algorithms and Foundations
- High Performance Graphics for Visualisation
- Advanced Technologies and Applications for Visual Analytics
- Virtual and Augmented Reality for Visual Analytics
- Art and Science for Visual Analytics
- Big Data Management, Transformation, and Presentation
- Visual Analytics Processes and Workflows
- Simulation for Visual Analytics

What is Chemical Proteomics?
Chemical Proteomics is an emerging multi-disciplinary mass spectrometry based study of the interaction of natural or synthetic small molecules and their interaction with proteins in complex biological samples. This new frontier of research is helping to lead the way in improving drug discovery, determining drug off-target effects, and it can also reveal new medical uses of existing drugs
