Bioinformatics & Systems Biology Conference 2020

BioSB 2020 postponed!

Due to the rapid escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions imposed by the Dutch government to ensure the safety and well-being of people, we unfortunately had to postpone the date of the BioSB 2020 conference planned on April 21-22.

We are pleased to inform you that we have been able to move the conference to later this year!

New date: 27-28 October 2020 (PhD retreat: 26 October)

Our aim is to keep the conference program as much as it is, although slight changes will probably be unavoidable. We will contact all keynote speakers, presenters and registrants with more detailed information soon.

Please keep an eye on this website and our mailings for further updates.

Please note that details on the website and in the programme may not yet be fully up to date!


This year's conference will be co-organised by the BioSB research school and the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center.

The BioSB 2020 conference discusses the latest developments in bioinformatics, systems and computational biology and interrelated disciplines, and their wide-ranging applications in life sciences & health, agriculture, food & nutrition. 

The conference will feature keynote lectures, parallel sessions featuring selected, highlight and invited talks, breakout sessions, poster & demo sessions, network breaks and a conference dinner and social event

The conference will also offer a track organised by ELIXIR Netherlands.
