Systems Biology Developers Foundry |3rd Systems Biology Developers Foundry (FAIRDOM/de.NBI)
1st – 2nd December 2016 – Frankfurt Main Station (Hauptbahnhof)
About the workshop
Data management is generally recognised as a crucially important but challenging part of Systems Biology. Data management systems that are useful, usable and used are difficult to get right. It is not easy to find out about already existing software, or the state of standards that could or should be adopted.
Following the successes of the Systems Biology Software Developers Workshop in 2012 and 2014, we propose the next meeting in the series that enables practitioners in the field to meet like-minded scientists, show their working and upcoming developments, and give opportunities to team up.
A meeting to socialise, yes. But also a meeting to figure out how we can team up beyond the confines of single work packages, or projects, in the light of ESFRI research infrastructures, national infrastructure projects, as well as the move from systems biology to systems medicine and synthetic biology.
At the same time, the rise of containers creates a new set of software reuse opportunities. This foundry workshop series has already demonstrated its use as a platform creating and intensifying collaborations.

Who should come?
Participation is limited to 25 people and the intended participants are software developers working in the field of data management in biology.
If you want to participate you should be:
Participation in the workshop is free. However, participants have to bear travel and accommodation costs by themselves, and we reserve the right to pick participants.
Check out the information at http://www.station-lounge.de . It is literally across the street from Hauptbahnhof Frankfurt.
The first day will focus on interactive demonstration/discussion in 4 parallel sessions, Each session takes 40 minutes. Each demo/talk is about 10 minutes and is given 4 times to varying small groups of people! Each parallel session will see all tables. This way, we get small discussion groups which facilitates true, interactive discussion.
Participants have described the process as fun, exhausting, and rewarding.
Questions to be addressed in each lightning demo:
