The conference to discuss the outcome of the CAGI 5 experiment will be held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago in Chicago, on 5-7 July 2018. All CAGI 5 participants are encouraged to attend.

Registrants will receive a code for $50 off for ISMB registration.

As with the previous conferences, the aim of the CAGI 5 Conference will be to disseminate the results of the most recent CAGI experiment and assess our collective ability to make accurate and meaningful predictions of phenotypes from genomic information. CAGI data providers, assessors, and selected predictors will give the majority of the talks at the conference, with significant time allocated for discussions.

Fellowships are available, and in previous years we were able to provide support to most eligible applicants. To be eligible for fellowship support you must be a student or postdoc and a US citizen or permanent resident. We may also be able to support some members of under-represented groups, including those with disabilities, regardless of citizenship. All eligible participants are strongly encouraged to apply for a fellowship and are likely to receive support.

Observers who did not participate in CAGI 5 are also welcome, but their attendance is limited by the capacity of the meeting space.

If you belong to an organization that would like to support the CAGI conference, please let us know!
