CHARME is organising a conference The CHARME of standardisation in life sciences on 21-22 June 2016 in Warsaw, Poland. The programme features several ELIXIR-related talks, including two keynotes by Barend Mons, Head of ELIXIR Netherlands, and Chris Evelo, co-leader of the ELIXIR Interoperability platform.
The registration and call for posters are now open. More information can be found on CHARME website.
CHARME brings together various projects and collaborations in standardisation of life science data and facilitates information exchange. Several interoperability experts from ELIXIR Nodes are involved in the initiative, including Carole Goble (ELIXIR UK) and Chris Evelo (ELIXIR Netherlands), co-leaders of the ELIXIR Interoperability platform.
Focusing on systems biology, CHARME will develop a framework to harmonise standards and formats in systems biology data. It will also act as a mediator between scientific standardisation efforts and relevant standardisation bodies and committees.
CHARME is a COST Action, kicked-off in March 2016. COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) supports trans-national cooperation among researchers, engineers and scholars across Europe. COST Actions are bottom-up, multidisciplinary and collaborative networks to address specific issues in various domains in science and technology.
