The MAQC International Society

The objective of the MAQC Society is to communicate, promote, and advance reproducible science principles and quality control for analysis of the massive data generated from the existing and emerging technologies in solving biological, health, and medical problems. Thus, the goals of the Society are to (1) advocate and facilitate the development and application of quality control practice and standard analysis protocols of bioinformatics and biostatistics for enhanced reproducibility across multiple experiments, laboratories, and data analysis methods, and (2) advance our understanding and best practices in the analysis of massive data from emerging technologies applied in drug development, clinical application, and safety/risk assessment.

This society was established to address the issues of reproducibility to the application of constantly evolving high‐throughput technologies. The correspondence about the launch of International MAQC society is published in Nature Biotechnology

CHARME: Harmonising standardisation strategies to increase efficiency and competitiveness of European life-science research

The COST Action (CA15110) – CHARME mission is to increase the awareness for the need of standards, promoting FAIR data, and data stewardship in scientific community, enabling the reuse of research data and its interoperability within the scientific community. CHARME aims to bridge and combine the fragmented areas of the various moves in the development of new norms and standards with a particular reference to systems biology and computational modelling. This is done by identifying needs and gaps, and teaming up with other initiatives to avoid duplication and overlap of standardisation activities. By active involvement of all stakeholders (from research, industry and policy), a common, long-term strategy is developed to successfully assimilate standards into the daily workflow and thus increase efficiency and competitiveness of European life-science research. Finally, CHARME provides a common ground for researchers from academia, research institutes, SMEs and multinational organizations. Website of the action: http://cost-charme.eu/

About the meeting: Reproducibility of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine

In the MAQC 2019 meeting, the focus is on the challenge of applying Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for biological, health, and medical problems, still adopting reproducible science principles for a medicine safely based on the trustworth and fair analysis of massive data.
