Dear colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to the new edition of CAMDA07

See: http://camda.bioinfo.cipf.es

CAMDA07 will be held in December 13th-14th, 2007 at the Centro de
Investigacion Principe Felipe (http://www.cipf.es) in Valencia, Spain.
See previous editions of CAMDA in: http://www.camda.duke.edu/.
As you might know, CAMDA decided to become roving in the last edition
and this is the first year for the conference to be held in Europe.

CAMDA was founded to provide a forum to critically assess different
techniques used in microarray data mining. It aims to establish the
state-of-the-art in microarray data mining, as well as identify progress
and highlight the direction for future efforts. In order to achieve
these goals, CAMDA adopted the approach of community-wide experiment,
letting the scientific community analyze the same standard data sets.
Researchers worldwide are invited to take the CAMDA challenge. Accepted
authors will be invited to give an oral presentation. Results of
analysis are discussed and compared at the CAMDA conference.

CAMDA, which began in 2000, was initiated by Simon Lin and Kimberly
Johnson from the Duke University Bioinformatics Shared Resource. In 2006
it was decided that CAMDA would  become a roving conference. This new
period begins with CAMDA 2007, organised by Joaquin Dopazo at the CIPF
in Spain, the first stop in the forecoming years of international
