Some weeks ago we submitted a talk named Crowdsourcing Genome Wide Association Studies during the call for participation for the 28th Chaos Communication Congress (28c3 in short) and we are happy to announce that our talk was accepted. The Chaos Communication Congress is an annual congress of the international hacker scene and is organized by the german Chaos Computer Club and attracts between 2,500 and 3,500 visitors each year. Philipp and I are going to speak about Personal Genomics, how Association Studies work, what the goal of openSNP is and – of course – about privacy problems that arise in a world of cheap DTC-genomics.
So if you interested in our talk (and the many other fabulous talks that will take place during those 4 days) you might want to visit Berlin. The 28c3 takes place from December 27th to December 31st 2011, but the ticket sale has not started yet. We’ll try to keep you posted when tickets can be bought. But don’t worry if you can’t make it (although you will miss the opportunity to have drink with us): There will be recordings of all talks.
