The field of microbiome research starts to investigate microbial functions in relation to dysbiosis (i.e. the unbalanced composition of the microbiome) being associated with health disorders and disease states. While many microbiome studies mainly rely on genome-based analyses, the integration of meta-omics data at the gene, transcript, protein and metabolite level is a holistic approach that extends the capabilities of microbiome studies. However, the potential of integrative meta-omics has not been fully exploited so far. An important reason is that bioinformatics methods are developed by different research communities. This limits the exchange of ideas and transfer of methods between researchers across different omics fields.

In this workshop, we want to bring together bioinformaticians and researchers working in meta-omics and microbiome-focused disciplines. The meta-omics workshop aims to:
(i) provide a platform of presenting new algorithms and software tools for integrative multi-omics approaches or related single omics technology
(ii) stimulate discussions on challenges and open questions
(iii) help exchanging ideas on bioinformatics methods
(iv) identify what is currently lacking for integrative omics in microbiome research

Abstract proposals for oral presentations (15 min talk + 5 min discussion) of tools, methods or open problems can be submitted until July 31, 2019

Draft schedule:

• Abstract deadline for open speaker slots: July 31, 2019
• Response to applications for speaker slots: August 20, 2019
• Each talk is limited to 15 minutes and additional 5 minutes of discussion for each talk. Coffee break of 15 minutes after the first half of the workshop. Final plenary discussion (20 minutes).
• Proposed time schedule: 13.30 – 16.30
