CAFCW21: Computational Approaches for Cancer Workshop 2021
TimeSunday, 14 November 20219am - 5:30pm CST
DescriptionNew computational opportunities and challenges have emerged within the cancer research and clinical application areas as the size, source and complexity of cancer datasets have grown. Simultaneously, advances in computational capabilities, with exceptional growth in AI and deep learning, are reaching unprecedented scales. The workshop focuses on bringing together interested individuals ranging from clinicians, cancer biologists, mathematicians, data scientists, computational scientists, engineers, developers, thought leaders and others with an interest in advancing the use of computation to better understand, diagnose, treat and prevent cancer. As an interdisciplinary workshop, the sharing of insight and challenges fosters collaborations and future innovations accelerating progress in computationally and data-driven cancer research and clinical applications. A special emphasis for the 2021 workshop is computational approaches to develop digital twin capabilities of relevance to cancer research and clinical applications. Such efforts span many key areas in cancer including multi-scale modeling, radiation oncology and precision cancer treatments.
