VIZBI brings together scientists, illustrators, and designers actively using or developing computational visualization to study a diverse range of biological data.
VIZBI 2014, the 5th international meeting on Visualizing Biological Data – and the 2nd in a series of EMBO conferences – will be held from the 5th to the 7th of March 2014 at EMBL-Heidelberg in Germany.
The conference features 21 invited talks that review the state-of-the-art and challenges in visualizing data from genomes, transcripts, proteins, cells, organisms, and populations. Prior to the meeting, on 4th March, will be 12 tutorials on key visualization tools & methods. Tutorial topics will be decided by the call for Tutorial Proposals, and be finalized in December.
All VIZBI 2014 participants have the opportunity to present a poster describing their work. Just before your poster session, you will be given about 60 seconds to briefly introduce yourself and your poster to all VIZBI participants (details here).
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and places are limited. If you cannot join us in Heidelberg, you have the option of virtual registration, which allows participation via streaming video and chat. A limited number of EMBL Advanced Training Centre Corporate Partership Program (CPP) fellowships are available, which provide two kinds of support: registration fee waivers, and travel grants. For details see the registration page.
