SC18 Birds of a Feather

Personalised Medicine and High Performance Computing

High Performance Computing (HPC) is getting closer than ever to turning the concept of personalised medicine into a reality. But how? By combining the work of clinical researchers and hospitals with the biomedical community we can embrace upcoming technologies to better diagnose and treat the patient. This Birds of a Feather (BoF) at Supercomputing 2018 (SC18) coming in November, 2018 in Dallas Texas is designed to educate, inspire and debate the possibilities. Highlights include the recent achievements of CompBioMed through How to Build the Virtual Human, to discussing emerging technologies, to raising some very practical questions around what we an do in the HPC community to propel this field into the future.

Special thanks to the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC) and Alces Flight Limited for their contribution towards making this BoF possible.
