Special session on CAMI on ISMB/ECCB conference in Prague, July 23rd

The CAMI initiative is increasingly recognized by the scientific community. After the very successful and interesting CAMI + M3 meeting in May 2017 in College Park, Maryland, we will now connect CAMI with the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).

With a special session at ISMB/ECCB 2017 (SST02) we will kick-start the new MICROBIOME COSI, which is supposed to establish a platform for developers and users of computational methods in microbiome research within the ISCB.

We invite you all to register to the ISMB/ECCB 2017 and to join our Session SST02.
