I'll be involved in the ENCODE Users' Meeting this month. Here's the advert for it:
Registration for the first ENCODE Users Meeting is now open. Cost and links to abstract submission and registration are available at: http://www.encode2015.org.
The ENCODE 2015: Research Applications and Users Meeting will be a 2.5-day workshop to learn how to navigate, analyze, use, and integrate ENCODE and mouseENCODE data. The NHGRI-sponsored meeting will be held from June 29 - July 1, 2015 at the Bolger Center (http://www.bolgercenter.com) in Potomac, MD.
This meeting will have both scientific presentations from a distinguished list of invited speakers and hands-on tutorial sessions with the goal of learning how ENCODE and mouseENCODE data has been used and providing opportunities to apply these tools to your own data.
We will have a poster session and select talks from the submitted abstracts. In addition, this meeting will provide opportunities for scientist to interact with people familiar with ENCODE datasets and analysis and foster future collaborations.
Abstract submission deadline: June 1, 2015
