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

    Utrecht, Netherlands

    Health-RI Conference 2020 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/health-ri-conference-2020 At this year's Health-RI conference, leading experts will highlight how data is helping us to remain healthy, and how it can drive us towards a healthy future. We all want to stay healthy for as long as possible. How do we keep people healthy? When we do get ill, we look for the best treatment - the right treatment at the right time, tailor made. How can we learn from today's patients so that tomorrow's patients get better treatment? It's a matter of continuous learning and improvement - evidence based with the help of enormous amounts of data in different formats and from various sources. We're already learning how to combine that data in clever ways, tailoring it to specific situations and applying it to our everyday health choices. 2020-01-30 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-30 17:00:00 UTC Health-RI Jaarbeurs Supernova, Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands Jaarbeurs Supernova, Utrecht Utrecht Utrecht Netherlands [] [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] FAIRHealthcarepersonalized medicinepersonal health trainArtificial Intelligence
