Dear ​CAMI/M3 ​community, ​

We ​enthusiastically ​​invite ​​you ​​to ​​attend ​​you ​a ​​joint ​​CAMI ​​(Critical ​​Assessment ​​of ​​Metagenomic ​​Interpretation) ​​and ​​Spring ​2017 ​M3 ​​(Mid-Atlantic ​​Microbiome ​​Meetup) ​​workshop. ​The ​overarching ​theme ​of ​this ​workshop ​ ​will ​be ​assessment ​and ​standards ​for ​metagenome ​interpretation, ​with ​special ​focus ​on ​long ​reads ​and ​strain ​level ​evaluation. ​This ​joint ​workshop ​will ​take ​place ​on ​Sunday, ​May ​7th ​and ​Monday, ​May ​8th ​at ​the ​University ​of ​Maryland ​College ​Park, ​and ​will ​be ​preceded ​by ​a ​3-day ​CAMI2 ​hackathon ​taking ​place ​from ​Wednesday, ​May ​3rd ​through ​Friday ​May ​5th ​(hosted ​at ​CBCB, ​University ​of ​Maryland ​College ​Park).
