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 September 13-17, 2020 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 2020).

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?
