Registration to open late August 2015. More details to come at www.hpcvl.org.

Advances in technology applied to medical and clinical research have led to the availability of large volumes of data from a variety of research studies and clinical environments. This data can be processed, integrated, federated, stored and analyzed to present opportunities for new understanding of diseases and treatments and has the potential to help save lives and billions of dollars throughout the health care system as well as, potentially helping create new products, methodologies and jobs.

The HPCVL and HPC4H in collaboration with Compute Ontario are pleased to host this symposium to allow several aspects of this opportunity and the issues surrounding the collecting and use of this data to be explored.
