Workshop name: e-Infrastructures for massively parallel sequencing workshop 2015 (eInfraMPS2015)
Organizer: Ola Spjuth, SciLifeLab
Expected output: Recommendations on how to build efficient and sustainable e-infrastructures for NGS data
When: 19-21 January 2015 (2 days followed by 1 day hackathon)
Where: SciLifeLab Uppsala, Sweden
Website: http://uppnex.se/events/eInfraMPS2015
Video recordings: Dedicated Youtube channel

This workshop will bring together scientists sharing their experiences on how to build efficient and sustainable e-infrastructures for NGS data management and storage, and setting up and maintaining associated ecosystem of workflows, pipelines, and bioinformatics software. Day 1 will consists of presentations by invited speakers, Day 2 will include presentations, discussions and tutorials, and Day 3 will be a hackathon where scientists can program together on any subject of choice.

The event is funded by SeqAhead, SciLifeLab, eSSENCE, SeRC, NeIC and BILS.

The NeIC logo was present on Website, program, and in announcements. I am also happy that Joel Hedlund participated and presented NeIC and the upcoming conference in May. The program and all slides are available from the workshop website [1] and video recordings from the presentations are available in a dedicated youtube channel [2].
