CAMDA 2022 Conference


CAMDA runs in collaboration with ISMB, which joins up with ECCB every other year. CAMDA is an established full conference track at ISMB, representing one of its Communities of Special Interests (COSIs). This gives you wide exposure and further opportunities for interaction with colleagues without separate registration fees. You just register with one of multiple options at ISMB, specifying CAMDA as your interest.

CAMDA focuses on one of the grand challenges of our time, the intelligent exploitation of Big Data in the life sciences. In the post-genomic era, an effective scientific interpretation of large datasets is key to new medical and biological insights from novel high throughput assays and the increasing size of biomedical studies. CAMDA puts a spotlight on the successful analysis and integration of the massive data sets now prevalent in the life sciences.

This year, recognizing the recent events, the scientific committee of CAMDA has set the following data analysis contest challenges:

  • The Extended Literature AI for Drug Induced Liver Injury Challenge provides biomedical publications curated by FDA experts on DILI. Build their digital twin to identify the sparse positives and demonstrate robustness under distributional shifts!
  • The Anti-Microbial Resistance Forensics Challenge features diverse meta-genomics profiles from urban and non-urban areas. Track emerging AMR and its relationship with phages!
  • The Disease Maps to Modelling COVID-19 Challenge provides highly detailed expert-curated molecular mechanistic maps for COVID-19. Combine them with available omic data to expand the current biological knowledge on COVID-19 mechanism of infection and downstream consequences!

Leading scientists present their best methods and analyses in talks, complemented by poster sessions. Papers based on the submitted extended abstracts enter a fast track for publication in the open access, fully indexed conference proceedings at Frontiers in Genetics. Related method papers can enter the ISMB proceedings track of the Bioinformatics journal.

All delegates vote for the best-contributed analysis. The top three presenters are honoured each year, with the first prize being the prestigious CAMDA Trophy award.

We cordially invite you to attend and contribute to CAMDA, and look forward to seeing you this year - virtually or in person!   (Fellowships available)
