The Flow Informatics and Computational Cytometry Society (FICCS) connects people sharing interest in new software tools, methods, and standards for flow cytometry. Members of the society represent a cross-disciplinary international collaborative group of bioinformaticists, computational statisticians, software and hardware developers and clinician scientists, from both academia and industry.
To register and obtain download information for the FlowCAP-2 datasets please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In FlowCAP-2, we have avoided using manual gates where possible. In challenges that manual gates are still used as gold standards, the gates will be extensively reviewed by experts before and after the evaluation of the algorithms. A full description of the challenges is available here. The deadline for submission of results is August 31, 2011. An NIH/NIAID-sponsored summit will be held for participants at the NIH campus from 22 to 23 Sept 2011. Details will be announced later, check out the meeting page for more info.
The Flow Informatics and Computational Cytometry Society is open to community participation. Membership is free of charge to anyone who is interested in contributing to our efforts.
