The Swedish e-Science Research Center (SeRC) welcomes you to its fifth annual meeting with the theme: “Big Data and e-Science in Medical Science”. The meeting includes presentations by invited international speakers as well as scientists affiliated with SeRC. The first day concerns how e-Science and Big Data can make a difference in medical science. The second day also includes talks in other subjects, but the focus on “Big Data” remains. The venue is the new Aula Medica (Day 1) and Samuelssonsalen (Day 2) at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden (directions and map). The SeRC Steering and Advisory boards have additional meetings in connection to the conference.

NOTE: Registration is now closed!! There might still be room at the lectures the first day – if you are interested ask on site for availability.

The conference is free of charge but the number of seats is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Welcome!
