Sessions Q to V - Birds of a Feather

This year we are organising Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions on May 21 in the afternoon (13:15 - 14:15h).

The aim of a BoF session is to discuss a topic of your choice in an informal setting; attendees group together based on a shared interest and carry out discussions without any pre-planned agenda. The BOF topics will be announced via the conference website so participants will be able to join the session that interests them most.

If you would like to submit a topic for a BoF session, please send us an e-mail!
 

Planned BoF sessions:

Session Q (room 5, start at 12:45 h)

BIUP session
Bioinformatics Industrial User Platform (BIUP)
