[PET] Call for registration: 2017 iDASH Genome Privacy and Security Workshop

*Dear all,*

*The growth of genome data and computational requirements overwhelm the
capacity of servers. Many institutions and NIH are considering the cloud
computing service as a cost-effective alternative to scale up research.
Privacy and security are the major concerns when deploying cloud-based data
analysis tools. In the past few years, secure computation methods have
witnessed significant performance improvement but it is still not clear if
they are applicable to biomedical challenges involving big data. The goal
of this challenge is to evaluate the performance of state-of-the-arts
methods that ensures rigorous data confidentiality during data analysis in
a cloud environment.*

The following is the important time points.
