Register now for the CAGI 4 conference, deadline extended; Lead Scientist job open

Dear CAGI Participant,

The CAGI 4 Conference will held 25-27 March 2016 at UCSF Mission Bay in San Francisco, California. All CAGI 4 participants are encouraged to attend and should register now. The standard conference fee is available through Wednesday, 9 March 2016. This is a 5-day extension of the original deadline. After that deadline, a late registration fee will apply.

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 4 are also welcome, but their attendance is limited by the capacity of the meeting space.

The conference will include presentations on all 11 challenges, with talks from the dataset providers, assessors, and predictors with particularly interesting methods and results.

We will not be having a room block, and in addition to traditional hotels, we advise considering AirBNB for accommodation. Also consider accommodation options in Oakland and the East Bay, which are connected to the conference site by public transportation (look for hotels near BART).

If you know of an organization that may wish to support the CAGI conference, please let us know!
