NIH Virtual Workshop on Broadening Cloud Computing Usage in Biomedical Research

September 13, 2021 - September 14, 2021
Virtual

In this workshop, bioinformaticians, computational biologists, and data scientists will join forces with university/college students, faculty, and researchers to gain insights into the barriers toward equitable access to cloud resources.

Registration is required for this workshop. Each day of the workshop will include multiple breakout sessions with a limited number of seats. Therefore, please register by Wednesday, September 8, if you would like to be considered for breakout session participation.

This NIH workshop is being co-led by the Office of Data Science Strategy, the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, and the Center for Information Technology.

A corresponding Request for Information (RFI) is available to solicit public input on the needs, barriers, applications of, and strategies for adopting cloud computing for biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social science research in the aforementioned universities/colleges. The companion RFI is open for comment until Thursday, September 30, 2021.
