submission deadline for workshops can be found below

The workshops will 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 will 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.

The workshops are planned on September 3 and 4, 2016 in the World Forum in The Hague, immediately preceding the ECCB 2016.
