Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019
28 - 29 November 2019
Barcelona, SpainAdvances in Computational Biology Conference 2019 https://www.iscb.org/advcompbio2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advances-in-computational-biology-conference-2019 The first **Advances in Computational Biology conference – _Fostering collaboration among women scientists_** will bring together researchers working on systems biology, omics technologies, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing with applications to biology from both the public and private sectors. One of the main purposes of the conference is to **visualize and promote the research done by women scientists** and for this reason, all presenters will be women, although the conference is open to everyone. We want to create a space to foster collaborations between scientists, providing an excellent opportunity to share ideas and build research networks. Topics included: - **Learning from Biological Sequences**: population genomics, evolutionary genomics, systems biology, transcriptomics, sequence analysis - **When Computational Biology meets Medicine**: biomedical applications, mutational landscapes, clinical genomics - **Machines Speeding up Research**: high performance computing, machine learning in the life sciences, imaging data analysis, dynamic simulations and algorithm development Key dates: - Open registration: May 6th, 2019 - Abstract submission opens: May 6th, 2019 - **Abstract submission deadline: July 1st, 2019** - Early bird registration deadline: September 15th, 2019 - Registration deadline: November 1st, 2019 - AdvCompBio Conference: November 28th - 29th, 2019 The programme will include poster and oral presentations, as well as keynotes from leading scientists in the computational biology and high-performance computing fields. The keynote speakers of the conference are: **Christine Orengo**, group leader of Orengo Group at University College London, **Natasa Przulj**, group leader of the Life Sciences – Integrative Computational Network Biology at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and **Marie-Christine Sawley**, director of the Exascale Lab at Intel. The confirmed chairs of the conference are: **Alison Kennedy**, director of the STFC Hartree Centre, **Janet Kelso**, group leader of the Minerva Research Group for Bioinformatics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and **Nuria Lopez-Bigas**, leader of the Biomedical Genomics Research Group at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine Barcelona. Furthermore, the participants will have the opportunity to interact personally with female leaders in the fields of IT, academic research and politics that support the conference. The conference is organised by the Bioinfo4Women programme from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) with the collaboration of IMIM-UPF Research Programme on Biomedical Informatics (GRIB), the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). It is an affiliate conference of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). 2019-11-28 09:00:00 UTC 2019-11-29 17:00:00 UTC La Pedrera, 92, Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona, Spain La Pedrera, 92, Passeig de Gràcia Barcelona Barcelona Spain Imaging Machine learning Computational biology Computer science Biomedical science Sequence analysis Transcriptomics Evolutionary biology Population genomics Omics Systems biology Bioinformatics   ResearchersPhD studentsPostdoctoral studentsComputer scienceComputational biologistsbioinformaticians meetings_and_conferences  HPCBioinformaticsComputational BiologyArtificial IntelligenceGenomicsTranscriptomicsSystems biologyPopulation GenomicsEvolutinary genomicsSequence Analysisbiomedical applicationsmutational landscapesclinical genomicsImagingdynamic simulationsalgorithmsmachine learning
Disorder in Disorders: Pathogenic mechanisms of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins
27 - 31 January 2020Disorder in Disorders: Pathogenic mechanisms of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins https://elixir-iib-training.github.io/website/2020/01/27/winter-school-idp-brixen.html https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/disorder-in-disorders-pathogenic-mechanisms-of-intrinsically-disordered-proteins Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs) are a highly abundant class of proteins that lack stable tertiary and/or secondary structures under physiological conditions. Numerous IDPs are associated with human diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, amyloidoses, neurodegenerative diseases, and diabetes. Overall, intriguing interconnections among intrinsic disorder, cell signaling, and human diseases suggest that protein conformational diseases may result not only from protein misfolding, but also from misidentification, missignaling, and unnatural or nonnative folding. The winter school will alternate lectures to practicals. During lectures, experts of the field will provide students an overview of IDP biological mechanisms that develop pathogenic phenotypes. They will explore the concepts of folding, unfolding and misfolding, highlighting their differences and similarities. Practical exercises aim at transferring to students basic skills for the study of IDPs and will revolve around the use of bioinformatic tools to solve complex problems. The school includes a half-day workshop on ELIXIR interoperability services and support for the IDP Community. 2020-01-27 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-31 17:00:00 UTC Università degli Studi di Padova - Casa della Gioventù, Via Rio Bianco,12 Università degli Studi di Padova - Casa della Gioventù, Via Rio Bianco,12 Protein properties Protein disordered structure Bioinformatics University of Padova, Italy firstname.lastname@example.org  PhD studentspostdoctoral researchersLife Science Researchers workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest intrinsically disordered proteinsprotein foldingbioinformatics
Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (3rd edition)
13 - 14 February 2020
Leuven, BelgiumApplied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (3rd edition) https://vibconferences.be/events/applied-bioinformatics-in-life-sciences-3rd-edition https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/applied-bioinformatics-in-life-sciences-3rd-edition Bioinformatics has quickly become an integral part of life sciences research by enabling innovative computational approaches in an increasingly data-dense environment. Inspired by the sold-out editions in 2016 and 2018, VIB (a non-profit life sciences research institute) is organizing this third edition to highlight recent developments in bioinformatics research, and to showcase its impact in medical, agricultural, and biotechnological research. Nationally and internationally renowned speakers will present recent scientific findings in applied bioinformatics. They will shed light on the future perspectives of their research in the following plenary sessions: - Microbial & plant genomics: from simple to complex - Structural bioinformatics and proteomics - Data integration, machine learning and networks - Single cell bioinformatics Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during poster sessions and the conference dinner. ### Speaker line-up: - Roser Vento, Sanger Institute, UK - Klaus Mayer, Helmholtz Zentrum München, DE - Thijs Ettema, Wageningen University, NL - Rohit Pappu, Washington University, US - Patrick Aloy, Structural Bioinformatics Lab, IRB Barcelona, ES - Helen Parkinson, EMBL-EBI, UK - Nick Loman, University of Birmingham, UK - Daifeng Wang, Stony Brook University, US - Aedin Culhane, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute & Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, US - Sushmita Roy, Dept. of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics, Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, University of Wisconsin, US - Olga Vitek, Northeastern University, US - Nikolai Slavov, Northeastern University, US - Evangelia Petsalaki, EMBL-EBI, UK - Ashley Lu, VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research, BE - Sofia Forslund, Experimental and Clinical Research Centre (ECRC, a joint venture of the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine and the Charité University Hospital), DE - Laurent Gatto, De Duve Institute – UC Louvain, BE - Erik Garrison, UC Santa Cruz, US ### Travel Grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros.
