Machine Learning for Personalized Medicine

Marie-Curie Action: "Initial Training Networks"

ESHG Symposium 2016

 "Machine Learning for Personalized Medicine" 


May 19 & 20, 2016, in Barcelona

in conjunction with the European Human Genetics Conference 2016


Machine learning is a powerful tool to analyze large, high-dimensional biomedical data sets (e.g. genetic, proteomic, or transcriptomic data). The objective is to find patterns in the deep sea of data that are significantly related to the development or progression of diseases or play a role in individual drug responses. Ultimately, machine learning algorithms are developed to provide physicians and other health professionals with clinical decision support.

At our conference we will bring together experts from this highly interdisciplinary field: human geneticists, bioinformaticians and machine learners will discuss recent research results and benefit from each others expertise.



The ESHG symposium 2016 will take place 

             on May 19-20, 2016

             in Barcelona, Spain

             at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Campus Ciutadella)

             Mercè Rodoreda Auditorium

             as a satellite meeting of the European Human Genetics Conference 2016

It will be open to external participtants but places are limited (65 seats).
