Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019| Nov 28 – 29, 2019 | La Pedrera. Barcelona, Spain

Events Information
More information: https://www.iscb.org/advcompbio2019 The first Advances in Computational Biology conference 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 promote and make the research done by women in the bioinformatics field visible. This is why all speakers 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. 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…

Bioinfo4women Programme

About
Barcelona Supercomputing Center's (BSC) Bioinfo4Women. Outstanding Young Female Bioinformaticians Programme aims to promote the exchange of knowledge and experience of outstanding young researchers in science and technology though trainings and mentoring. Through the programme, the centre seeks to give greater visibility to the contribution of women in different fields of science, with a particular focus on the areas of personalised medicine, bioinformatics and HPC. The programme will initially last for 2 years, during which BSC will develop a training plan aimed at training young female researchers in the methods, programming and optimisation of applications in computational biology. Both face-to-face sessions and virtual sessions in the form of webinars will be offered, in order to maximise the reach of the programme. In addition, month-long study visits at BSC will be organised…
