    Events: CfP: Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (3rd edition)
    Submitted by Rob van Ham; posted on Monday, September 23, 2019

    February 13-14, 2020
    Leuven, Belgium[...]ition


    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.


    We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros. Are you interested in attending ABLS20 and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 15 November. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance on 22 November 2019. No registration is needed before submitting a travel grant proposal. When you're awarded with a travel grant you will receive a practical email containing the next steps. Note that being awarded a travel grant does not mean being registered for the conference. Scroll down to apply for your grant.
