fet11 Conference & Exhibition
From 04/05/2011 to 06/05/2011
Budapest, Hungary
FET11 is a European forum dedicated to frontier research in future and emerging information technologies. The event will give an opportunity to take an early look at what are likely to become tomorrow’s science successes and groundbreaking technologies based on ICT-led research. During the event, diverse communities will meet to discuss visionary, high-risk research in a broad range of scientific fields and debate on technologies which will emerge at their crossroads - and on their societal impact. An exhibition is organised in parallel. Expected participants include scientists, policy makers, European researchers, industry representatives and journalists. The event is co-organised by the European Commission, ERCIM (the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics) and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, under the auspices of the Hungarian Presidency of the European Union.

computox modelling
From 14/12/2010 to 14/12/2010
A new section on JRC-IHCP Computational Toxicology and Biostatistics activities is now available on the IHCP web site. Computational (in silico) methods, sometimes referred to as “non-testing methods”, can be used to reduce our reliance on experimental testing, and in particular animal testing. The Biostatistics team contributes its statistical expertise to activities on alternative (non-animal) methods and assessment strategies for chemical toxicity. Read more
