CONTRA

– Computational Oncology Conference –

31st January - 2nd February 2022

In-person @ Andermatt, Switzerland


About

The conference is the final highlight of the Computational ONcology TRaining Alliance (CONTRA), an EU-funded Innovative Training Network. It aims to bring together investigators in the broader scope of oncology for talks and discussion on practical problems and latest research. We expect participants from different backgrounds including statistics, bioinformatics, imaging, and biomedical sciences.

Scope

The conference will involve a single track with 8 keynote speakers as well as contributed talks. The number of participants is limited to 100 to enable easy interactions and networking between participants.
Additionally, there will be two conference dinners and free afternoons for enjoying winter sports in the Swiss Alps together.
