Spatial Models of Tumours

4th CONTRA Workshop in London, UK. September 2020 (preliminary)


The event is planned to be divided into three parts over equally many days:

(1) A workshop on spatial modelling, expected to be open for external participants. More information will follow at a later time.
(2) A hackathon – Machine learning and spatial modelling (at ICR).
(3) A paper writing workshop.

The list of speakers will include young and inspiring scientists. They will, in addition to communicating their expert knowledge in spatial tumour modelling, give career advice and share some of their own experiences in making critical career-path decisions.


Event registration will open later.


The workshop is hosted by The Institute of Cancer Research, London. Accommodation has not been finalized yet.
