Conference overview




Workshops & SIGs

The workshops are expected to provide participants with an informal setting to discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas, and to share practical experiences on a range of focused or emerging topics in bioinformatics. SIGs are workshops organized by a Special Interest Group. Each workshop should provide an interesting perspective on the cutting edge of a selected research field. Workshops may include any form of presentation such as talks or panel discussions.

Workshop overview



The purpose of the tutorial program is to provide participants with lectures and hands-on training covering topics relevant to the field of bioinformatics. Each tutorial will offer participants an opportunity to learn about new areas of bioinformatics research, to get an introduction to important established topics, or to develop advanced skills in areas they are already familiar with. This call is an invitation for scientists and professionals working in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology to submit proposals for high quality tutorials for ECCB 2016.

Tutorial overview



Workshops are scheduled either on Saturday, September 3, or on Sunday, September 4, from 9:00 to 17:00, with two half-hour coffee breaks and a one-hour lunch break. In exceptional and well-justified cases, two-day workshops may be scheduled from Saturday (September 3) to Sunday (September 4).
