3 September, 2018 - Harnessing FAIR Data

Time: 13:00:00 - 17:00:00

Harnessing FAIR Data focuses on researchers who employ or are seeking to use data in their work. FAIR is a set of guiding principles to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. In this thematic context we aim to better understand the cross-disciplinary practice of sourcing, using and managing data and its associated implications, such as ownership, standards and metadata, and access and licensing. Experienced speakers from around the UK will come together to explore FAIR data and services, and a panel session will help to identify key questions that researchers face when considering using data in research. This event is hosted by QMUL, UCL and the SES Consortium. We are pleased to confirm our keynote speaker, Prof. Pam Thomas from the University of Warwick. Other speakers and panel members include Dr. Paul Ayris (UCL), Dr. Charles Romain (Imperial College London), Andrew Lane (King's College London) and Prof. Henry Rzepa (Imperial College London).

3 September, 2018 - Systems Biology: Making Sense of Complexity Symposium 3 & 4 September 2018

Time: 09:00:00 - 17:30:00

Weizmann UK are hosting a two-day Systems Biology Symposium at University College London. The aim is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of leading world scientists from the Weizmann Institute with those from the UK to look at some of the common motifs of how complex biological system are organised. The symposium will focus on emerging systems design principles in the exploration of cancer, neurosciences, host-pathogen interactions and cell biology. Attendance will be limited to 180 delegates. Registration is £100 or £50 for students. This includes lunch and refreshments. This meeting will be an exciting and slightly out-of-the ordinary occasion so do make sure to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

5 September, 2018 - Materials and Molecular Modelling Hub Conference 2018

Time: 13:30:00 - 13:00:00

An exciting annual event for the materials and molecular modelling HPC (High Performance Computing) community. Providing a platform for the world-class science taking place at this specialist HPC centre. The conference will be a marrying of HPC and materials modeling, with the aim of increasing cohesion across the UK modelling community, involving an impressive lineup of prominent international and UK based speakers, joining us to talk about and discuss their recent research in materials modelling and HPC-related research. Addressing the future of HPC, the development of new architectures and possible new Exascale initiatives, the conference will be packed with with fascinating talks, and we are pleased to host representatives from Intel and OCF Plc. We invite poster submissions, which will be on display throughout the conference. See the link below for more details and for a list of keynote and invited speakers.

17 October, 2018 - UCL Division of Psychiatry: The computational anatomy of psychosis

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Speaker: Professor Karl J. Friston, Institute of Neurology, UCL Abstract: This talk considers formal or computational approaches to psychopathology. I will use schizophrenia to offer a case study of computational psychiatry. We first review the basic phenomenology and pathophysiological theories of schizophrenia. These motivate the choice of a formal or computational framework within which to understand the symptoms and signs of schizophrenia; particularly, in terms of false beliefs or inference. This framework is the Bayesian brain. We will focus on the (neuromodulatory) encoding of uncertainty or precision within predictive coding implementations of active inference – to demonstrate computational approaches to the nature and pathogenesis of hallucinations and delusions.

18 October, 2018 - Webinar: Key data - Longitudinal data

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Hosted by the UK Data Service, this webinar will introduce the wide range of longitudinal datasets available at the organisation. This introductory webinar is intended for anyone who wants to learn about the wide range of longitudinal datasets available via the UK Data Service. The Service provides access to various types of longitudinal data. One of these are the British Birth Cohort Studies (e.g. the National Child Development Study 1958 and The Millennium Cohort Study) which follow the same group of children born in a specific year throughout their lives, tracking changes and unravelling the reasons behind them. Another type is the successor of BHPS, Understanding Society, an innovative and world-leading study about lives and its changes in the UK in the 21st century. And finally, there are other studies such as the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing focusing on later life, following certain age cohorts and shedding light on their specific experiences over time.

5 November, 2018 - Advanced Stata: Programming and other techniques to make your life easier

Time: -

A five day course from the Population Studies Group, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The course is aimed at researchers and other professionals, from any discipline, who regularly use Stata for analysis but want to learn how to work more efficiently. It would be particularly suited to those who are about to embark on large analyses. We will cover a range of topics including: • efficient ways of working using do files commands that allow you to manipulate data and to easily create new summary variables and datasets. • Stata's commands for accessing and outputting results including put excel to send results to Excel, a similar command to send output to Word documents and two simple commands to write text files and Stata datasets containing results. • creating new commands (programs) for Stata. Cost: £1385

6 December, 2018 - CLOSER collaborative conference about the UK’s longitudinal studies: challenges and solutions

Time: 09:00:00 - 17:00:00

On 6 December 2018, CLOSER will host a one-day collaborative conference at the Wellcome Trust with the aim of identifying the best way to tackle the key challenges facing longitudinal population studies. Further details published soon.
