    WEBINAR: Where to go when your bioinformatics outgrows your compute https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-where-to-go-when-your-bioinformatics-outgrows-your-compute Bioinformatics analyses are often complex, requiring multiple software tools and specialised compute resources. “I don’t know what compute resources I will need”, “My analysis won’t run and I don’t know why” and "Just getting it to work" are common pain points for researchers. In this webinar, you will learn how to understand the compute requirements for your bioinformatics workflows. You will also hear about ways of accessing compute that suits your needs, including Galaxy Australia, cloud and high-performance computing services offered by the Australian Research Data Commons, the National Compute Infrastructure (NCI) and Pawsey. We also describe bioinformatics and computing support services available to Australian researchers. **Who the webinar is for** This webinar is intended for biological researchers who wish to understand what computational infrastructure is available outside their institution’s compute facilities. Some familiarity with the concepts of high performance computing is recommended. We think you will enjoy this webinar if you have experienced one of the following: • Your high performance computing jobs fail because of walltime limits • Not having enough disk to process your data • Feeling intimidated by the compute resources and time required to process large datasets If you’re considering applying for access to compute through the NCMAS allocation scheme you can find out more about tailoring your application to bioinformatics projects in our next webinar [High performance bioinformatics: submitting your best NCMAS application](https://www.biocommons.org.au/events/ncmas). **Presenters:** Georgina Samaha and Dr Tracy Chew, Sydney Informatics Hub, University of Sydney **Date/time:** 19 August 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST **How to join:** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here](https://unimelb.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_hJ2bJLlBQC2kJ0tCUOP9SQ)** 2021-08-19 12:00:00 UTC 2021-08-19 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Australia Australia Workflows Bioinformatics Australian Biocommons Melissa Burke melissa@biocommons.org.au [] Biologistsbioinformaticians 500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served HPCHigh performance computingComputeBioinformaticsWorkflowsNCMAS

    WEBINAR: High performance bioinformatics: submitting your best NCMAS application https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-high-performance-bioinformatics-submitting-your-best-ncmas-application Bioinformaticians are increasingly turning to specialised compute infrastructure and efficient, scalable workflows as their research becomes more data intensive. Australian researchers that require extensive compute resources to process large datasets can apply for access to national high performance computing facilities (e.g. Pawsey and NCI) to power their research through the National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS). NCMAS is a competitive, merit-based scheme and requires applicants to carefully consider how the compute infrastructure and workflows will be applied. This webinar provides life science researchers with insights into what makes a strong NCMAS application, with a focus on the technical assessment, and how to design and present effective and efficient bioinformatic workflows for the various national compute facilities. It will be followed by a short Q&A session. **Who the webinar is for** This webinar is intended for biologists and bioinformaticians who wish to apply for the NCMAS 2022 allocation. Familiarity with HPC is recommended. For an overview of compute options available to Australian researchers and advice on how to match your bioinformatics needs to compute join our other webinar on[ Where to go when your bioinformatics outgrows your compute](https://www.biocommons.org.au/events/compute-resources). **Presenters:** Georgina Samaha and Dr Tracy Chew, Sydney Informatics Hub, University of Sydney **Date/time:** 20 August 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST **How to join:** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here](https://unimelb.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYscuigrDMjEtbGTLGmc3LZooB6zn16vKWv)** 2021-08-20 12:00:00 UTC 2021-08-20 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Online, Australia Online Australia Workflows Bioinformatics Australian Biocommons Melissa Burke melissa@biocommons.org.au [] Biologistsbioinformaticians 500 [] first_come_first_served HPCHigh performance computingWorkflowsNCMASBioinformatics
  • Translational Immunology

    22 - 23 November 2021

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Translational Immunology https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/translational-immunology The organizing committee is looking forward to organize the postponed edition of this event on 22 - 23 November 2021 in Ghent, Belgium. The aim of this conference is to bridge the translational gap in immunopathology, bringing together clinicians, research scientists and industry partners to discuss prominent advances from the bench to the clinic. Internationally renowned speakers will present their latest findings during 5 plenary sessions: Making the most of your antibodies T Cell activation and exhaustion Bugs and drugs in immunology From drug to market Tissue immunity Information for poster submissions The format for your poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation. The best three abstracts were given a short talk slot in the plenary program. The 2 best posters will win the Poster prize sponsored by Elsevier's journal "Cellular Immunology"! Travel grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros. Are you interested in attending Translational Immunology and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 30 August 2021. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance by the end of March. 2021-11-22 09:00:00 UTC 2021-11-23 17:00:00 UTC VIB De Bijloke, Jozef Kluyskensstraat 2, 9000 Gent, Gent, Belgium De Bijloke, Jozef Kluyskensstraat 2, 9000 Gent Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium 9000 Immunology Translational medicine VIB conferences@vib.be [] PhD StudentsAcademicsPhysiciansIndustry [] first_come_first_served Immunologytargeted therapeuticstherapeutic application
