OPENTOX USA 2015: DRIVING THE BIG SCIENCE CHALLENGE IN SAFETY FORWARD CONFERENCE CHAIRS: Barry Hardy (Douglas Connect) and Thomas Hartung (Johns Hopkins) Tue, 10. Feb. 2015 to Thu, 12. Feb. 2015 Mt. Washington Conference Center, Johns Hopkins Baltimore, MD, USA ABSTRACTS: Talks and Workshops: 30 November 2014 Posters: 16 January 2015 At this meeting we will discuss and develop important components for driving 21st century approaches to safety assessment forward. Their successful assembly and application will benefit greatly the health of our society and our environment and the private and public sector activities supporting those goals. This meeting is not meant to be just a discussion but rather an assembly of people and resources that can generate momentum, new innovations and significant change. We assume that collaboration driven by an open global platform and open standards will be a key success factor. Integrating heterogenous evidence supported by a common knowledge framework and ecosystem of tools and partners will enable practical application, judgements and decisions. The outcomes of this meeting should lead to new propositions, and significant advancements in safety frameworks, products and services. CONFERENCE INTERACTION SESSIONS 1. Data Science 2.
