From April 23rd to April 27th 2012 will be held at the Monastery of Avellanes (Lleida, Spain) the INBIOMEDvision Training Challenge 2012, an innovative training experience organized by the Biomedical Informatics Research Program (GRIB) of IMIM and UPF, that gathers two groups of 5 advanced students with expertise in various fields of Biomedical Informatics (Bioinformatics, Medical Informatics, Biology, Medicine, Chemistry, etc), who will collaboratively work on a case study related to a research problem.
Each student is required to submit a motivated case study upon application. Among the case studies proposed, the organizing committee will select one case study per group, according to the potential it offers for cross-discipline approaches. The call for student applications is now open, the deadline will be on December 31st, 2011.
The objective of this training activity is to promote the dialogue between disciplines, which is key for the future development of Biomedical Informatics.
The participants will spend the week in the Monastery of Les Avellanes, so that they can actually 'live' for a week on a research-driven environment. The INBIOMEDvision Training Challenge is organized by the EC FP7 funded Coordination and Support Action INBIOMEDvision. The INBIOMEDvision project will cover the participants’ expenses during the event.
