CAUSALPATH – WORKSHOPS
Causal Discovery and Modelling of Signal Pathways with Mass Cytometry Data
Workshop: 26 – 28 April 2015
Kick-off meeting: 28 – 29 April 2015
To celebrate the beginning of CAUSALPATH we are pleased to announce the International Workshop on Causal Discovery and Modelling of Signal Pathways with Mass Cytometry Data. The event is hosted by the University of Crete in collaboration with the Karolinska Institutet under the aegis of the European Research Council (ERC).
The broader aim of this workshop is to create awareness of the project and to facilitate a general and open discussion on how to approach the research problem of Causal Discovery in Signaling Pathways using Mass Cytometry data. For this reason, we are bringing together leading experts from around the world in various aspects of Causal Discovery, Biology and Cytometry in an attempt to initiate a conversation that will continue to motivate us through the five years of the project.
To this end, our primary goal during this workshop will be to spark fruitful discussions by exchanging ideas and research findings related to the ambitious objectives of CAUSALPATH. We hope that our enthusiasm will engage the workshop’s participants to open up the many potential challenges for research in the field and identify new possibilities for collaboration and interaction.
The sessions on the first day, April 26, will provide a broadly accessible introduction to the motivation and biological background of the project. The next two days, April 27-28, will be entirely devoted to more specific Causal Analysis scientific aspects.
The following tentative programme provides an overview of the topics that will be discussed during the meeting.

Introduction and discussions over the biological aspects of the project will be coordinated by our partners from the Karolinska Institutet. For the discussions over the project’s challenges in causal discovery from observational and interventional data, several prominent national and international researchers working on causality and/or the intersection of causality and biology have accepted our invitation to participate in CAUSALPATH’s brainstorming Workshop sessions.
