Dear Friends,

Following the success of the first two MOVISS Bio&Data meetings, we would like to invite you to be a part of the third! MOVISS – the “Mountain Village Science Series” takes place on 14th – 17th September, 2020 New date: 13th – 16th September 2021 in CHATEAU HOTEL HRUBA SKALA, within the protected landscape area known as the Bohemian paradise about 90 kilometers north-east of Prague.

MOVISS is different to the usual conferences. It is designed as a small, problem-driven meeting, full of discussions and questions about how to deal with metabolomics data reasonably. In this way, we hope to constructively engage some of the greatest minds collaboratively on solving some of the challenges of the metabolomics and bioinformatics community. Together with hiking tours and social program, MOVISS is planned to be a friendly and relaxing meeting for scientists interested in the fields of metabolomics and statistics. Our previous attendees overwhelmingly voted for us to hold it again. We deliberately keep the number of attendees low – so register early to avoid disappointment (Registration is scheduled to open in February 2021).

Four sessions are planned, each devoted to a separate step of the metabolomics process:

1) Mountain planning: Seeing the vision (Royston Goodacre)
2) Mountain safety: awareness of strengths and weakness of statistical tools (Sebastian Böcker)
3) Misty peaks: making sense of data (TBA)
4) End in sight: reviewing your mountain adventure (Lorrain Brennan)
