|The Cancer Cytogenomics Microarray Consortium (CCMC) has scheduled its 4th summer meeting which will be held in conjunction with the Cytogenomics Array Group (CAGdb) meeting. The joint conference will be held at the Swissotel in Downtown Chicago on August 5-7, 2013.
The first half of the meeting will be devoted to cancer-related topics and will include invited presentations from leading cancer geneticists/genomicists, focusing on the clinically important as well as recent developments in cancer genomic diagnosis, prognosis, and management.
The second half of the meeting will focus on constitutional microarray analysis with various workshops planned for data interpretation, information sharing, database building and best practices in reporting and follow-up.
The mid-portion of the meeting (afternoon of Day 2) will cover practical topics that relate to both cancer and constitutional diagnostics such as microarray data quality metrics.
Additionally, we are providing an optional short workshop at the end of the meeting for any attendees new to microarray analysis or desiring a hands-on interactive session for microarray interpretation. During this 2 1Ž2 hour final session, we will review useful databases and provide hands-on demonstrations for microarray interpretations.
Abstracts will only be presented in the first half of the meeting and therefore submissions should focus on cancer-related topics. All abstracts will be published in the journal Cancer Genetics.
