Workshop on Exploiting Big Data Semantics for Translational Medicine - Public Events: 3/25/132013-03-19
On March 25 and 26, Indiana University School of Library and Information Science and School of Informatics and Computing will host a workshop on Exploiting Big Data Semantics for Translational Medicine. This workshop brings together leading practitioners from around the world in the areas of semantic technologies, network science and visualization, and computational translational medicine to identify the most critical areas for collaboration between these fields to maximize impact on the next generation of disease treatments.
The event organizers announced two public events (see below.) SLIS students are welcome to attend.
