The 8th International Workshop on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology (IBSB) is part of a collaborative educational program involving leading research institutes from the US, Japan and Germany:
- Boston - Graduate Program in Bioinformatics, Boston University
- Berlin - The International Research Training Group (IRTG) "Genomics and Systems Biology of Molecular Networks"
- Kyoto/Tokyo - Joint Bioinformatics Education Program of Kyoto University and University of Tokyo
This student-focused event is held annually since 2001 to provide doctoral students and young researchers with opportunities to present and discuss their research objectives, approaches and results in the emerging field of genomics and systems biology of biomolecular networks.
Time:2008, June 9th - 11th
The conference will start on Monday at the Teikyo University near Lake Zeuthen. We recommend that you arrive in Berlin on Saturday to adjust to the time difference. We have organized a hotel in Berlin for one night. After a cultural event for the whole group on Sunday a bus shuttle to the conference hotel will be available. It might be of interest to you that immediately after the IBSB an international conference on systems biology will take place in Berlin from June 12th to 14th (www.berlinsummermeeting.org) which is organised by Nikolaus Rajewsky.
The abstract book (includes program) can now be downloaded
Papers can be submitted to the submission site of the University of Tokyo (password needed)
- Registration ended Wednesday, May 28th
- Talks and Poster submission ended May 28th
- Paper Submission for Genome Informatics 2008 until June 27th
Scientific Program:The workshop included two keynote lectures, circa 30 oral presentations as well as a poster session.
Full papers presented at the workshop will be published within the Genome Informatics Series of the Japanese Society of Bioinformatics (Editor: Satoru Miyano, University of Tokyo).
Summaries of talks and posters will be included in the abstract book of the workshop.
