Dear Colleagues, 

With great pleasure we announce the 14th International Conference on the Critical Assessment of Massive Data Analysis (CAMDA) in Dublin, Ireland, July 10-11, 2015, held as official Satellite Meeting to 23rd International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) and the 14th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB).
CAMDA focuses on innovative methods to analyze massive data sets from life sciences. Over two days, researchers from bioinformatics, computer sciences, statistics, genetics, molecular biology, and other fields present novel approaches to analyze Big Data. 

An essential part of CAMDA is its competitive challenge where big heterogeneous data sets are analyzed and outcomes and methods compared. Academic and industrial researchers worldwide are invited to take the CAMDA challenge, to show their expertise in handling Big Data, and to present their results. Submitted abstracts are selected for oral and poster presentations. As in last years, the prestigious CAMDA prize will be awarded for the best presentation. Selected submissions are published in the CAMDA Proceedings as an open access PubMed indexed special issue of Systems Biomedicine. 

You can find additional information about the challenge data sets, submissions, etc. at www.camda.info <http://www.camda.info/>. Some key dates are: 
- Abstract submission deadline for oral presentation / 20 May 2015 
- Abstract submission deadline for poster presentation / 25 May 2015 
- Notification of accepted contributions / 30 May 2015 
- Early registration closes / 1 June 2015 

As in past years, contest presentations are complemented by high profile keynotes (with recent speakers including Sandrine Dudoit, Mark Gerstein, John Quackenbush, Nikolaus Rajewsky, Chris Sander, Temple F. Smith, Eran Segal, Terry Speed, and many others). This year, we are delighted to welcome: 

- Des Higgins, University College Dublin, Ireland  
- Chris Mason, Weill Cornell Medical College, USA 

We look forward to seeing you in Dublin!
