The fourth edition of ÄBC2 will take place right after ISMB/ECCB 2019 in Basel, Switzerland, on July 26. The workshop is independently organised, so please do make sure to register for both events separately.
Registration is open now!
This workshop provides an opportunity for communication and exchange on scientific and service aspects of bioinformatics core facilities in Europe. We are coordinating our agenda with the COSI BioInfo Core Workshop at ISMB on July 22 to offer complimentary content or allow for follow up on topics of the conference.
We look forward to keynote talk of Zhang Zhang, PhD, from the Beijing Institute of Genomics. Additionally, we invite everyone to contribute talks or tutorials! As every year, we will have a hands-on practical part and expect interesting break out sessions on.

Topics and who should attend
We address the use of public analysis infrastructures, bioinformatics as a service and for research, as well as issues of translational bioinformatics such as integration of multimodal biomedical data, communication with healthcare practitioners, and ELSI challenges.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Furthermore we cover the evolving relationship between research groups and core facilities and foster exchange on core facility organisation and management, for example in service and project management, scientific collaboration, teaching and career opportunities in core facilities.
Everyone working in a bioinformatics core facility or tasked with state-of-the art bioinformatics data analysis should not miss this event.
