CloudMET 2017: Scientific School on Cloud-based Metabolomics Data Analysis and Collaboration
September 11-15, 2017
Pula, Sardinia, Italy
The PhenoMeNal consortium (through CRS4), along with the Universities of Cagliari, Jena and Cambridge are organizing the “Scientific School on Cloud-based Metabolomics Data Analysis and Collaboration” (http://cloudmet2017.crs4.it/), to be held in CRS4’s research campus in [Pula, Sardinia, Italy](http://s.crs4.it/EL) on September 11th-15th, 2017. The School will offer participants an opportunity to learn about current topics in metabolomics, with a slant on the integration of cloud computing technologies where they can be most beneficial to the effectiveness and efficiency of research and analysis work. The course will include lectures by experts and hands-on sessions aimed at deepening theoretical and practical knowledge, all while learning how to leverage cloud computing resources.

September 20 - 23, 2017
Announcing MOVISS: Bio and Data
A problem driven meeting aimed at bioinformaticians, biochemists, statisticians and those who handle and interpret metabolomics data
When: Sept 20th-23th 2017, There is a followup R Summer School is September 25 – 27, 2017 in Vorau.
Where: Vorau, Austria
Not just an ordinary conference, where people present work they have already done, MOVISS is centered on identifying and problem solving current challenges relating to metabolomics data handling by getting everyone in the room discussing it. Want to be at the forefront of solving some of the major bottlenecks in the Metabolomics Revolution – see you at MOVISS!
SMMAP2017: Mass Spectrometry, Metabolomics and Proteomics Analysis
October 2 - 5, 2017
Disney Resort, France
The French Society of Mass Spectrometry, the French Network of Metabolomics and Fluxomics and the French Society of Electrophoresis and Proteomic Analysis are happy to introduce the first joint conference SMMAP 2017 (Mass Spectrometry, Metabolomics and Proteomic Analysis 2017). The local organising committee will welcome you at the New York Hotel® (Disneyland® Paris, Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy) from Tuesday 3 to Thursday 5 October 2017. A satellite metting will be organised on Monday 2 October, for training activities, round tables and a young researchers's meeting.
This unique event, which will host more than 450 participants, will foster interdisciplinarity, as well as scientific exchanges between communities that traditionally meet separately. It will also be an opportunity to broaden our knowledge, share experiences and create new links, both scientific and personal. The conference will also welcome scientists from the private sector, working on instrumentation, sample preparation and data processing.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Metabolic Phenotyping
October 12 - 13, 2017
Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.
This 2-day course will provide a comprehensive overview of the application of quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) in metabolic phenotyping. The course is aimed at students and researchers who are actively working in the field. Experts who have developed the application of QA and QC procedures within the field will lead the course. It will include both theoretical and practical components to,
- Introduce QA and QC in metabolic phenotyping
- The application of QA and QC in untargeted and targeted studies
- Preparation of QCs and data acquisition
- Data processing and reporting standards
The course will finish with a question and answer session with a panel of experts.
Hands-on LC-MS for Metabolic Phenotyping
November 13 - 17, 2017
Imperial College London, South Kensington, London, UK
This week long course aims to cover how to perform a metabolic profiling experiment, from start to finish. It covers study design, sample preparation, the use of mass spectrometry for global profiling and targeted methodologies and data analysis.
It combines lectures and tutorial sessions to ensure a thorough understanding of the theory and practical applications. Topics covered include:
- Targeted and untargeted sample preparation
- Targeted and untargeted data analysis
- Statistics and OPLS
