We are pleased to announce the DREAM8.5 and DREAM9 Challenges.
DREAM8.5 started in late 2013 and will continue in 2014. The DREAM9 Challenges will start in early June 2014 and continue through mid-September 2014. Best performers in the DREAM8.5 Alzheimer’s Disease Big Data DREAM Challenge will be invited to present their results at the International Biomedical Commons Congress, to be held in Paris in April 2015.
Best performers in the other DREAM8.5 and DREAM9 Challenges will be invited to present at the RECOMB/ISCB Conference on Regulatory and Systems Genomics, with DREAM Challenges (November 09-14, San Diego, CA) with partial travel expenses covered by the Sage/DREAM organizers. Sage Bionetworks and DREAM are also working with high impact journals to ensure that the methodology developed by the Challenges' best performers will be considered for publication under the challenge-assisted peer review format.
