The number of organizations using the Platform continues to rise and current users who responded to the survey produce a 5 TIMES increase in their users for 2016.
From the CEO Desk
JOIN US IN AMSTERDAM for the tranSMART Foundation 2015 Annual Meeting!
We have a great agenda set up for the meeting, with 4 stellar keynote presentations, 25 scientific and technical presentations, and a poster session. We only have room for 40 posters, and already more than half those slots are taken. Make sure to send in your poster abstract soon! Also, we will have updates in a special session with our Datathon teams, and will have a hackathon led by Kees van Bochove.
The annual meeting will also be the forum for our Board of Directors meeting, as well as the 3C committee meetings. The 3C’s committees will be reviewing our various working groups, and will be bringing forward new working group proposals.
We will be discussing our new release process that is being implemented with v1.2.5, the v1.3 development program, and have focused discussions on the v2.0 project as well. We have formed the new tranSMART Project Management Committee (PMC), and will be rolling out the new wiki and some new governance infrastructure. You may even meet some new Foundation staff members as well!
I am looking forward to seeing you at the 2015 Foundation Annual Meeting in Amsterdam on October 19-21. And don’t forget that the eTRIKs community meeting follows on Thursday, October 22nd in Amsterdam as well.
