The OWS on Computational Cancer Research is an interactive summer school with lectures, research talks, poster sessions, and a practical workshop. It will cover a series of advanced lectures to introduce the relevant topics, followed by research talks that showcase the current research questions and methods in the field.

A key part of this summer school is the interaction between speakers and student participants. Accordingly, applicants are asked to present their work as a poster to stimulate discussions with established scientists as well as fellow students.

Doctoral students and young researchers with a computational background in the cancer field and related fields from all over the world are welcome.

All participants will have to present a poster during the summer school. Moreover, some participants will be selected to give a talk based on their poster abstract.
