Dear friends,

following the success of the first two MOVISS Bio&Data, we would like to invite you to be a part of making the third! MOVISS – the “Mountain Village Science Series” takes place in CHATEAU HOTEL HRUBA SKALA, protected landscape area called Bohemian paradise about 90 kilometers north-east of Prague, in September 21-23, 2020.

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 friendly and relaxing meeting for scientists interested in the fields of metabolomics and statistics.

Tomáš Adam and Peter Filzmoser 

 

Preliminary program

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

1) Shiny design: What is important when designing experiments?

2) Misty mountains: How to find peaks hidden in mists? What is a real peak?

3) Mountain safety: awareness of strengths and weakness of statistical tools

4) Home run: Results Interpretation – Be creative, critical and think next?
