The second Summer School in Computational Oncology will be taking place in Wadern, Germany on June 23-28, 2013.
This year's Summer School follows on from the success of the first Summer School in Heraklion, Crete on June 13-18, 2011, organised by the p-medicine partner FORTH.
This year, the renowned "Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz Center for Informatics", located in Wadern, Germany, will host the Summer School. At the 2nd Summer School in Computational Oncology, p-medicine and its partners will provide basic training on the new research dimension of computational oncology based on the experience and expertise acquired in various European collaborative projects (p-medicine, EURECA, INTEGRATE, VPH-Share and CHIC).
Together with the participants, international experts in the field of computational oncology will cover a broad range of multidisciplinary aspects including both clinical and engineering/basic science viewpoints. Moreover, the participants will be introduced to the legal and ethical issues at stake in the field of personalized medicine.
The Summer School gives students, PhD candidates, young researchers, legal scholars and engineers from diverse backgrounds and disciplines the opportunity to gain the necessary knowledge and skills required to understand the basics of multiscale cancer modelling, its legal and ethical implementations and the biomedical informatics framework. Insight into all these areas is essential if we want to bring this new technology closer to the clinical setting and decision making process. The latter is crucial for achieving our ultimate goal: to place patients into the centre of interest of medicine and offer tailor-made therapies for as many people as possible. The Summer School is one step in this direction.
The lectures and workshops will cover the following topics:
• Impact of IT towards personalized medicine
• Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics
• Law and Ethics in IT frameworks for personalized medicine
• Interoperability and Sustainability
Schloss Dagstuhl is the home of the renowned Leibniz Center for Informatics which promotes scientific research, academic education and networks between researchers and engineers. Schloss Dagstuhl offers a space well-equipped for our needs, with conference rooms, accommodation for the night and full catering.
