Dear colleagues,

we are happy to announce that registrations are now open for the 
"Scientific School on Cloud-based Metabolomics Data Analysis and 
Collaboration", to be held in Sardinia on September 11-15 2017 

Metabolomics is a well established -omics science whose growth is 
bringing about new challenges. Systematic studies and integration with 
other data sources are resulting in ever larger dataset sizes; 
production applications require superior computational scalability of 
analysis techniques; complex, multi-step workflows make study 
reproducibility more challenging.

At the same time, cloud computing technologies are extending their 
functionality and provide practical solutions for many of these problems.

In this School students will have the opportunity to learn about current 
topics in metabolomics, with a slant on the integration of cloud 
computing technologies where they are beneficial to the effectiveness 
and efficiency of research and analysis work. Top-level lecturers in the 
field will provide their insight and will be available for the entire 
duration of the school, with ample opportunity for interaction with the 
students. Importantly, the School will also include practical sessions 
where students can put their new knowledge into practice under the 
guidance of tutors and run analyses using the new PhenoMeNal cloud-based 
metabolomics platform.

It would be great if you could forward this to interested students and
