To Friday, 28. September 2018 - 17:00
The German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) is an annual, international
conference devoted to all areas of bioinformatics. It is the annual meeting of the
German "Gemeinsame Fachgruppe Bioinformatik" (FaBI). Recent meetings attracted
a multinational audience with 250 – 300 participants each year. The meeting
is open to all fields of bioinformatics and is meant as a platform for the
German and European bioinformatics community.

The upcoming GCB will be organised by the Austrian Bioinformatics Platform
ATBI and will be held at the University of Vienna. The conference will focus
on computation in life sciences and aims to showcase applications and
opportunities beyond. Spearheading scientists will be presenting along with
young researchers and industry representatives. The first day September 25 is
reserved for workshops and satellite meetings. The main conference will take
place from September 26-28. The schedule will allow for fly-in on Wed and
fly-out on Fri.

For the first time ever the GCB will be held outside of Germany. While Vienna
is mostly known for its impressive buildings from various architectural
styles that no tourist should miss out, it also is the biggest University
city in the German-speaking area and one of the hubs for life sciences in
