CFP : Workshop on Reproducibility and Robustness in Biological Data Analysis and Integration (RRoBIn 2016)‏

 
Dear Colleagues

Please consider submitting your work to Reproducibility and Robustness in Biological 
Data Analysis and Integration (RRoBIn 2016) 
https://sites.google.com/a/unomaha.edu/rrobin2016/home

held in conjunction with

The 7th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics 
(ACM-BCB 2016).

l
Deadline Extended to June 17th
The objective of our workshop is to promote awareness of the need for rigor in biological 
data and to highlight methods that can improve the correctness of data analysis.

Potential topics for this workshop include:
•                Pros and cons of machine learning methods for data analysis
•                Anomaly detection in biological image processing
•                High-throughput assay preparation, execution, and analysis of results
•                Methods for multiple-hypothesis testing
•          Accuracy and sensitivity of Next Generation sequencing and assembly methods
•                Algorithmic transparency and communication standards
•                Network modeling – creation, thresholds, and filtering
•                “Omics” methods for data aggregation
•                Biomedical data fusion
•                Verification and validation methods for sorting biological noise from signal
•                Trustworthiness of in silico methods without benchmarking studies
•
