VIZBI 2017 (Sydney, 14-16 June)


VIZBI 2017, the 8th international meeting on ‘Visualizing Biological Data’, will take place 14-16 June 2017 at the Charles Perkins Centre in Sydney.

VIZBI is an international conference series on Visualizing Biological Data that has alternated annually between the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany, and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge MA, USA. In 2017, for the first time, VIZBI will come to Sydney, Australia.

VIZBI 2017 will feature keynotes from Daniel Keim, Tamara Munzner, and Drew Berry, and talks from 18 world-leading researchers showcasing visualizations transforming how life scientists view data, and driving key advances in molecular biology, systems biology, biomedical science, and ecology.

The conference brings together a diverse community, including bioinformaticians, data scientists, computer scientists, and experimentalists, as well as medical illustrators, graphic designers, and graphic artists. VIZBI 2017 will be part of Vivid Sydney giving an extra incentive to make the trip to Sydney.

All participants have the opportunity to present a poster and a lightning talk describing their work. If you cannot make it to Sydney, you have the option of virtual registration, which allows participation via streaming video and chat. The deadline for early bird registration is April 7 and discount are available for staff and students from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research or The University of Sydney as well as ISCB members.

Prior to the meeting (June 13), there will also be half-day tutorials on visualization tools & methods. If you are interested in running a tutorial, you are invited to submit a tutorial proposal (deadline: 20 March 2017).
