On 3rd October 2016 I’ll present a poster on “Deep siamese neural networks for prediction of long-range interactions in chromatin” Abcam Symposium 2016, at MaRS Auditorium in Toronto.
From 16th to 19th May 2016, I will be with my lab-mates at the Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference (GLBIO) 2016 at University of Toronto. I will have an oral presentation about my work, entitled “Distal chromatin loop prediction with deep siamese neural networks“.
I’m a member of the program comittee of CIBB 2016, the 13th International meeting on Computational Intelligence for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. You’re all invited to submit your papers before 15th May 2016.

From today I’m at NIPS 2013, a pre-eminent world conference on machine learning in South Lake Tahoe, California. You can meet me during these days!
For those of you who work or study in an university of the Lombardy region, in Italy (EU), I suggest you to participate BioLom2013, the first Lombardy yearly meeting of the bioinformatics community.
It will take place on Wednesday 27th November 2013 at Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy, EU.
The event is free, for further information and subscription, you can visit this webpage
Dear friends, I’m glad to inform you that from today I’m a visiting PhD student at University of California Irvine (Irvine, Orange County, Southern California, Usa). I’m going to work in the Pierre Baldi‘s research group at the Institute for Genomics and Bioinformatics of UC Irvine.
I’m going to stay here for some months, working on deep learning.
Today I defended my Doctoral Minor Research Project, at Dei PoliMi. For those who were not there, and are interested in the theme, here’s my presentation slides:
It is entitled “Support Vector Machines in Bioinformatics: a Survey” and can be freely dowloaded from the publications section
Some time ago I signaled BioStars.org, a nice Q&A website on bioinformatics. Now I’d like to invite you to visit another very interesting questions and answers website: MetaOptimize, dedicate to Machine Learning, and other stuff.
I strongly think that this kind of websites could get a lot of help and effort to the scientific communitiy, because allow scientists and researchers to interact directly in a very constructive way. Another great Q&A website platform that you probably know is StackExchange.com, with its primadonna StackOverflow.com
To get more and more useful, these websites need more and more users. That’s why I invite you all to join MetaOptimize and these other Q&A websites: you’ll get even more than what you imagine!
