The Second BIOMICS Summer Workshop took place from the 18th to the 20th of June at the University of St Andrews in Scotland by kind invitation of Professor Alastair Munro, Professor of Radiation Oncology at the University of Dundee and BIOMICS project partner.

The purpose of this workshop was to enable project partners to present the main findings from the second year of BIOMICS research to each other and to external guests, especially from the Interaction Computing Research Network (ICRN) and the UCOMP cluster. 

The workshop was a great success enabling us to share our research output and have a very fruitful knowledge exchange. 

You can view the final agenda below as well the power point presentations that were presented.
