ELIXIR Single Cell Omics Community F2F/hybrid meeting

Wed 18 October 2023, 09:00 to Fri 20 October 2023, 14:30
Hinxton Conference centre, Hinxton, United Kingdom

This year, we are combining the annual community gathering with the FAIR Data Management Workshop. The annual meeting is scheduled for October 18th and will be hosted at the EMBL-EBI Campus in Hinxton, UK. Following that, the workshop will take place from October 19th to 20th, 2023.

During the workshop, the focus will be on discussing and sharing practices related to FAIR data management. The agenda includes insights from members of the Single Cell Omics Community who will present their data production and analysis workflows. Challenges in reusing others' data and creating usable datasets will also be addressed. The aim is to establish best practices in managing research data and pinpoint key areas where the community requires improvements to enhance data FAIRness. The workshop is scheduled for a duration of two days, from morning to lunchtime.

The current agenda (draft) can be found here.

Seats for the in-person segment of the meeting are limited, whereas there is no cap on the number of virtual participants. Those who receive invitations to attend will be offered funding based on their participation in either one or both parts of the event, as well as their involvement in the implementation study. Detailed information about funding and reimbursement will be provided after registration. We kindly request that you refrain from making any travel arrangements until you have received a confirmation notification.
